Restoring The Right To Life
Of all the tragedies of abortion on demand, one of the worst may be that countless innocent American girls have been taught by the culture, and even sometimes by their parents, that their dignity and opportunity depends on their ability to destroy their own unborn children. I believe this sad fact is doing more to destroy America than what any foreign enemy could ever do.
That's not hyperbole, my friends. One million abortions a year is roughly 2,700 abortions a day. We are committing a 9/11 almost every day.
I was reminded what abortion on demand does to young women by an extraordinary confession of one mother on "The View" recently. The mother was Ali Wentworth, wife of ABC News anchor and Clinton loyalist George Stephanopoulos. Wentworth told the panel that when it was obvious Clinton was going to lose the election, her 14 year-old daughter was in tears as she screamed that the election would mean "No Abortion!"
When I read that, it broke my heart. It wasn't that many years ago when 14 year-old girls dreamed of someday meeting the person they would love and who would love them, and with that person bringing new life into the world. It is unnerving to think how many of our daughters and granddaughters may now be convinced that there is nothing more noble than to destroy that life before the child can take her first breath outside the womb.
There are lots of things that must be dealt with in the coming years. But anyone who thinks abortion won't be a big issue just needs to look at what Obama is doing on his way out the door. According to the Washington Times, the Obama Administration finalized a rule yesterday that "requires states to distribute dollars from Title X of the Public Health Service Act without taking into account whether recipient clinics perform abortions." This new regulation is set to take effect on January 18th, two days before Donald Trump and Mike Pence take office.
In spite of public opposition to taxpayer funding of abortions, the Obama Administration is doing everything it can to guarantee that your hard-earned tax dollars are used to subsidize the nation's largest abortion business.
In a very important meeting yesterday, I reminded the attendees that America will not be great again until the day comes when all of our children are welcomed into the world, protected by the law, have a seat at the table and are part of the American family.
We must restore the right to life -- the first right our founding fathers recognized as an unalienable right granted not by government, but our Creator. With your prayers and financial support, American Values will continue to make the case for protecting innocent unborn babies.
