In every election, abortion remains at the center of my decision making. It’s a moral issue and it’s a constitutional one. The Bible and our Constitution undeniably prioritize the value of human life.
While I never endorse candidates, I could never support a candidate who advocates taking the life of a child, and in Hillary Clinton we have a candidate who not only calls for the continuation of abortion, but also defends late-term abortion, the most barbaric form of abortion.
“I want a Supreme Court that will stick with Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to choose… Now, Donald has put forth the names of some people that he would consider. And among the ones that he has suggested are people who would reverse Roe v. Wade… I think that would be a terrible mistake and would take us backwards,” said Sec. Clinton in the second presidential debate.
In the third debate, just three weeks shy of Election Day, Sec. Clinton was even more forthright about her position on abortion: “I will defend Planned Parenthood. I will defend Roe v. Wade…. We have come too far to have that turn back now.”
When moderator Chris Wallace pressed Sec. Clinton for specific answers on her position on late-term abortion Clinton remained unwavering in her opinion that late-term abortions were permissible. Clinton even famously voted against a ban on partial-birth abortion. It was the Supreme Court which eventually banned this unconscionable procedure in Gonzales vs. Carhart.
Just stop and think about this for a moment: Sec. Hillary Clinton has made it one hundred percent clear she intends on promoting abortion, using taxpayer dollars to do so, and has even been an unwavering supporter of partial-birth abortion. Of the bipartisan Hyde Amendment, which presently bans the use of taxpayer dollars to fund abortion, Sec. Clinton couldn’t have been clearer, “I think we should do everything we can to repeal the Hyde Amendment.”
For many evangelical Christians this position alone disqualifies her for office. It’s just that simple. Every abortion procedure is designed to end life.
Sec. Clinton has said that seeking to change abortion in America “would be a terrible mistake and would take us backward.” In the final presidential debate, she added, “We have come too far to have that turn back now.”
Yet I’d like to ask: when a doctor can insert a vacuum into a woman’s uterus and aspirate out a fetus or inject a drug that stops a baby’s heart and proceed to tear him or her apart, piece by piece, with forceps, is this not reflective of a society who is heading backward instead of forward?
