Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. (Eph 6:11)
“. . . [T]he party of “safe, legal and rare” has been captured by the loud voices and deep pockets of an extremist abortion industry that treats abortion as a moral good. Major Democratic politicians are even unwilling to protect the lives of babies who survive attempted abortions.

There are many complicated debates to be had about abortion . . . . But infanticide isn’t complicated. The current debate is about whether or not it’s OK to deprive newborns of appropriate medical care. . . .
It shouldn’t be controversial. It shouldn’t be partisan. Three Democratic senators—Pennsylvania’s Bob Casey, Alabama’s Doug Jones and West Virginia’s Joe Manchin—read the bill and agreed. Yet under enormous pressure from an abortion industry that spends tens of millions in campaign contributions, Senate Democrats—including six seeking the presidency in 2020—filibustered the bill.
Most Americans don’t share these Democrats’ disregard for newborn life. A recent poll found that a majority of Americans oppose withholding medical care from a viable infant, including 77% who consider themselves pro-choice. If there is ever an opportunity to find common ground, surely this is it. . . .
This debate is about infanticide. Planned Parenthood is defending that crime. Many in the national media are overlooking it. Democratic politicians are hiding from it. But the American people are repulsed by it. The recent vote was a missed opportunity to protect the most vulnerable among us. But it will not be the last.” (Excerpted from op-ed by Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb) and Meghan McCain in the Wall Street Journal)
