If you ever wondered if the fight for the lives of unborn babies is truly a battle of good versus evil, this should confirm that fact.
Last week an angry pro-abortion mob effectively shut down the Texas state legislature to prevent a bill that would have banned late-term abortions, past 20 weeks, in that state. This bill is very similar to a bipartisan bill that just passed in the U.S. House of Representatives banning late term abortions, something two-thirds of Americans agree should be ended.
Gov. Rick Perry has called another special session to prevent the will of the people from being thwarted by mob rule, so that the legislature could pass this late-term abortion ban.
Radical pro-abortion forces are at it again. But their chant, their refrain, their call to action is as despicable as the procedure they promote. As pro-life advocates gathered to show their support for the bill, singing Amazing Grace, a pro-abortion mob chanted, “Hail Satan,” in an attempt to drown them out.
This is not just a difference in opinion that separates those who support and defend life and those who euphemistically claim to be pro-choice. It is not whether I like where you want to build a road or how much my gas tax should be or what policy is best to bring jobs and economic prosperity. This is a fight for the heart, and yes, the soul of America.
It is a battle of life and death, of good and evil.
Clearly not everyone who dons the “pro-choice” mantle is intending to advocate evil. Many are swept up by a very effective PR campaign that tugs at the very nature of humans to care more about self than others. Certainly the idea that the government shouldn’t be intruding in my personal decisions is a laudable goal, in the generic sense.
However, the abortion fight is not about the woman but about the child. Should the child live or can someone else determine that that child isn’t worth it, is too inconvenient, or just wouldn’t make it in life?
The American people must awake to this realization. An unborn baby is a human just like you and me, but unlike you and me, a baby cannot take even the most basic steps to protect itself from those who seek his or her death. Thankfully, we are now beginning to see a moral awakening in this country.
The more America is confronted with what the mainstream media has successfully kept hidden to this point—the Gosnels of the world and the pro-abortion “hail Satan” chanters—the more hearts, minds, and souls will be turned to the truth. The truth that is so simple it has been etched on the soul of America since 1776, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
