Decency Makes a Comeback
I’m fond of pointing out that our enemies are our best asset. Nothing has demonstrated that so succinctly as the latest round of extreme abortion bills proposed (and passed in one case, sadly) from Democrats. While New York celebrated their endorsement of infanticide, Virginia was able to wise up and shoot their own version down before it got legs.
But it was too late. The mask has come off and people are able to see Dims for exactly what they are on this issue: godless, soulless and well outside the mainstream of America.
PDT criticized supporters of late-term abortion and urged Congress to pass a fetal pain law in what were some of the most candid comments about the issue ever given in a State of the Union address. Once again, it took the scoundrel all the elites look down on to articulate the evil of the other side.
The remarks were brilliantly positioned immediately after both sides of the aisle applauded PDT for including in his budget “a plan for nationwide paid family leave,” which he said gave “every new parent” the chance “to bond with their newborn child.”
He then pivoted to abortion.
“There could be no greater contrast to the beautiful image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our nation saw in recent days,” Trump said. “Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments before birth.”
“These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love and dreams with the world. And then, we had the case of the governor of Virginia where he stated he would execute a baby after birth. To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb.”
Again, what type of ghoul is against banning the murder of a 5-month old baby who can feel the agony of the ‘procedure’ being performed?
The type dressed in white, that’s who.
Joe Manchin of West Virginia stood in solitude in front of a group of pouting young Democrats who couldn’t bring themselves to protect babies who can feel pain just as acutely as ourselves.
There was one aspect of Trump’s abortion remarks that I believe has gone unnoticed by many analysts. In virtually every case, PDT had been deliberately moderate in his remarks. It was a big tent speech designed to seclude Democrats in their irrational hatred. His policy proposal followed that theme, as a ban on 20-week abortions is very much a centrist policy. I would go so far as to call it a sane policy, but it’s hardly extreme.
But he didn’t hesitate to use the G word to invoke the sanctity of life, noting that every unborn child is created “in the image of God.” Words matter, and those were courageous. By calling all life sacred — not just 20-week old life — he’s signaling to the pro-life movement that while his policy proposal was middle of the road, his heart is very much with them. That has big implications for Supreme Court.
When and if Ruth Bader Ginsberg steps down or God forbid is taken from us, Amy Coney Barrett is on the way. That means an assault on Christian belief like none have seen in modern times, and a very energetic evangelical voting base.
We stand to lose a few moderates as well, to be sure. But when evangelicals get behind someone, they typically more than compensate for whatever RINOs skip town.
Things are getting very interesting, folks. Good on PDT for standing up for the most vulnerable among us.
