For the first time in history, the U.S. House has just voted to create a federal law allowing for the killing of preborn children. The legislation was passed on a vote of 218-211, without a single Republican vote. One brave Democrat opposed the bill.
This radical legislation would make it legal to abort a baby for any reason up until live birth. Even more astonishing: it would supersede and supplant any and all state laws restricting abortion at any point in a pregnancy. Thus, Idaho’s laws regarding informed consent or parental consent for girls would become null and void under the terms of Nancy’s vision for a new America. Gone would be any understanding of states rights; gone, too, would be any legal duty to care for babies who somehow survive the chemical or surgical tortures of the abortion procedure. Even the Ban on Partial Birth Abortions would be repealed by Nancy’s dark version of “social justice”.
The legislation is so radical that not even pro-abortion Republican Susan Collins (R-Maine) will support the bill once it gets to the U.S. Senate. It is unclear how the Democrat Joe Manchin will vote once it gets to the floor.
With the lopsided House vote, there can no longer be any serious argument regarding the Democrat Party’s embrace of child sacrifice as the central tenet of their political faith. They have officially become the party of death.
Planned Parenthood has cashed-in its marker with Democrat politicians, demanding that they use their slim hold on congressional power to codify Roe v. Wade in federal law. Up until this week, Planned Parenthood has relied upon their extraordinary influence in the federal judiciary to protect their death empire. But the threat of a reversal of Roe coming in this next term of the U.S. Supreme Court has caused the Abortion Industry to hit the panic button.
That term of the Court will begin early next month, with oral arguments in the Dobbs case scheduled for December. We must be in earnest prayer for the members of that Court. We must clang the gates of Paradise, asking the Lord to grant those justices courage and integrity in the face of great spiritual oppression.
