The Pro-Life case against Donald Trump... and of course, Hillary.

I have followed and participated in many Facebook arguments about why people who believe in the sanctity of human life have to vote for Donald Trump. The most common arguments are

  • Open Supreme Court seats
  • Trump's pro-life self proclamation
  • The death of America
I would like to refute each in a little detail.

"If Hillary gets to fill the court, we will lose a generation of opportunity to reverse Roe v Wade"

We had a whole generation to reverse Roe v Wade and it didn't happen. Why not? Because of a little thing called PRECEDENT. If you don't know what that is you should look it up and stop beating your head against a rock. To put it in a nutshell, the real problem is activist judges, like the ones Democrats appoint, have no problem using their robes to make up new laws, but constitutionally sound justices, respect judicial process and would reluctantly overturn a decision from an inferior court let alone one that the Supreme Court made, in the past, without proper scientific information, out of thin air. Simply, Ruth Ginsburg would do and say anything to promote her politics, John Roberts actually has a conscience.

The only abortion will ever be illegal in this country is through a constitutional amendment. This is not out of the question, but you would need a truly pro-life leader who walks the walk and can talk the talk. Which leads us to the next argument.

"Donald Trump says he is pro-life, that is better than knowing for sure that Hillary is pro-abortion."

To answer this I offer you the following fable:

ONE WINTER a Farmer found a Snake stiff and frozen with cold.

The snake said to the Farmer:
    "If you pick me up and hold me to your stomach, your body will make me warm."Image result for farmer and snake
The Farmer said:
   "If I do that you will bite me."
The Snake answered:
   "Why would I do that if you save me?"
The Farmer had compassion on the Snake, and taking it up, placed it in his bosom.
The Snake was quickly revived by the warmth, and resuming its natural instincts, bit its benefactor, inflicting on him a mortal wound.
   "Oh," cried the Farmer, "Why did you bite me after I saved you?"
   "You knew I was a snake when you picked me up," answered the Snake.

Donald Trump is so disconnected from the pro-life movement, he actually thought punishing women who procured abortions would make him popular among us. He clearly has never read a pro-life book, been part of a pro-life organization, walked on a picket line, or talked to a genuinely pro-life person. He praises Planned Parenthood. He praises his pro-abortion sister as a great Supreme Court option. He proposes killing the families of terrorists.

If you are supporting Trump you picked up the snake and you've been bitten. You just don't know it yet. Which leads us to death and the final topic.

"Hillary will kill America once and for all. The country will never recover from it."

After Obama's 8 years the country is in dire straits. I agree with anyone who says that. You need only look across the Atlantic to see where we are headed with more progressive leadership. Moral vacuum, whites not having children, Muslims immigrating and procreating at 3 to 4 times rate of whites.

The part I don't agree with is that the country can't recover from it. I think it can, but it is going to take a principled honest man or woman to be a servant to the people. Ted Cruz could have been that person but Americans are too stupid to look for substance, they rather have the glitz of a shiny object like Trump or Bernie. Unfortunately for ignorant college students everywhere, Bernie was doomed because Hillary has the DNC and the media in her pocket. She is a mafia queen par excellence. The usual RNC waste of space (e.g. John McCain, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush, etc) couldn't gain traction because Obama's horrific failure fueled so much anger that everyone (even people with no political was awareness, i.e. Trump supporters) was out for insider blood.

This election is over. The future starts now. Be a disciple, go to church, evangelize, be prepared to suffer, sacrifice so much that others want to know how you can give so much of your time, talent and treasure for others. Then answer because my God suffered and died for me, what else can I do?

Only then will Christianity thrive and America be great again. STOP LOOKING TO WASHINGTON.
