Killing those who are likely to vote for them in the future

© 2018 Jim Spence -  For some of us, abortion is much more of an abstract philosophical debate, versus a legal debate. I have more than a few friends who have aborted, and I love them. And personally, I can still recall vividly the years when Kristi and I had decided we were “ready” to start a family and it took us all of nearly seven years to produce just two children. We stopped at two children, but later in life we both lamented the fact that we did not have a third child. Now in our early sixties, we wait anxiously for our first grandchild.
Marching on either side of the abortion debate is not in my plans. Having heard all of the arguments I have chosen to lean quietly towards the Pro-Life viewpoint. I rarely discuss this topic. I do respect those who are Pro-Abortion. However if they are anti-death penalty too, it takes a lot of effort to shrug off the glaring inconsistency. I am certainly intimidated somewhat by how ardently Pro-abortion people argue for their viewpoints, especially those who think it is perfectly acceptable to kill a viable baby in the womb.
For millions of people abortion is a lightening rod issue. You see this especially with so-called journalists. The news media methodically supplies an endless stream of stories about women’s freedoms, while offering scarce if any coverage of the stories like that of serial killer Dr. Kermit Gosnell of Philadelphia. Gosnell was convicted of murdering three infants who were born alive during his attempted abortion procedures. No telling how many times that happened. Gosnell was only caught on three killings. Still, ask around…….no Democrat and very few Republicans have ever heard of Dr. Kermit Gosnell.
Kermit Gosnell was defended passionately by ardent feminist Democrats, who somehow have convinced themselves to believe that even when babies are born alive, the mother should have the “right” to snuff out the infant’s life. Apparently Gosnell thought so too. Or perhaps he simply needed to kill the baby dead to justify his fee. Somewhere along the way……“I have a right to do whatever I want with my body” morphed into, “I should be allowed to murder little babies that recently exited my body.” It’s the sort of moral quantum leap you are seeing more and more often with Democrats these days in the “resistance” era.

It is not surprising that people who think throwing Sarah Sanders and her family out of a restaurant was a moral imperative, are very unlikely to re-check their moral compasses, even on mid and late term abortions. This moral paradox is a testament to the fact that Democrats have profound trouble with consistency. Beyond consistency Democrats also have a problem with the big multi-generational political picture. Democrats routinely encourage their constituents to snuff out future Democrats.
Why do I say this? The numbers don’t lie.
Blacks are ten times more likely to vote Democrat than Republican. Hispanics are twice as likely to vote Democrat as Republican. Whites are about 50-50. And yet an African-American woman is almost five times more likely to have an abortion than a white woman, and a Latina woman is more than twice as likely to have an abortion as a white woman, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
There is more.
So insistent on the right to snuff out babies lives are Democrats, that California passed what they dubbed as the “Reproductive FACT Act” in 2015. This law required pro-life (and predominantly Christian) crisis pregnancy centers to prominently display information (in multiple languages) announcing that they do not provide abortions, as well as information about where abortions are available. The law imposed fines of up to $1,000 per violation. The fines embedded in this statute would effectively put Pro-Life clinics out of existence, which of course was the intent of the Democrats who passed this law. Earlier this month, the U.S. Supreme Court finally ruled on National Institute of Family and Life Advocates v. Becerra and struck down the blatantly unconstitutional law requiring Pro-Life clinics to encourage the snuffing out of unborn babies in California.
It seems ironic that Pro-life GOP voters on a daily basis beg Pro-Abortion Democrats not to snuff out their unborn children. And yet Pro-Abortion Democrats are insistent that snuffing, even late term snuffing is moral, because it is the woman’s body. They insist that we are not talking about infants. And so there it is. Millions of future Democrat’s lives are being terminated at the outset by adult Democrats. It is no wonder Democrats feel the need to illegally import future Democrats from outside U.S. borders to fill the void caused by all of these deaths. When you think about this situation, it is easy to see the macabre nature of thinking behind the Democrat’s open-border position. They favor late term abortions but object to borders. Curious.
