There was a time, not so long ago, when politicians who supported abortion did so with a certain acknowledgment that the taking of an innocent life was wrong. Perhaps that is best captured by the bumper sticker lyrics made famous by the Clintons: “We want to make abortion safe … and rare”.
Those days are gone, friend. We have now entered a new era in America’s dark experiment with child sacrifice is being boldly defended and encouraged by Democrat political leaders in a number of states.
The state governments of California, Washington, Oregon and Minnesota have been amongst the most rabid. Those states have entered into two separate federal lawsuits here in Idaho – seeking to undermine Idaho’s ban on abortion. Those states have also created “safe harbor” laws for Idaho residents traveling there for abortions that would be illegal within Idaho. They have actually appropriated tax dollars to help underwrite the medical and travel expenses of Idaho women and girls traveling to California or Washington for so-called “abortion vacations”:
“Come to California at our expense, kill your baby … and then hang around for awhile enjoying our beaches, restaurants and tourists sites. It’ll be great.”
Washington state has actually gone even further: In the wake of a righteous ruling by a Texas federal judge threatening the legal status of RU-486, the wicked governor of our neighboring state has ordered his agencies to purchase and stockpile some 3 million doses of the abortion drug. Given that his state only has some 7 million residents – it seems clear that Governor Inslee intends to export the drug in hopes of spreading death and mayhem to the rest of America.
Clearly, these states have moved beyond simply protecting abortion within their states. They have become active partners with the Abortion Industry. As a practical matter, it is now hard to distinguish the Washington State government from Planned Parenthood. Maybe they’ve even become competitors for the blood of the innocent.
In Scripture, we read the teachings of Jesus regarding the natural shame of sin: “Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.” (John 3:19,20).
It would seem we have entered into a new era, in which people like Governor Newsom and Governor Inslee no longer care about their deeds being exposed. We’re not entirely sure what this means for America – but it can’t be good.
