God not only gave us this glorious gift of life, but He also trusted us enough to manage that gift by granting us all free will. He could have made us puppets. He didn’t. That’s why the world is such a mess. It’s also why the world holds such wonder, majesty, and beauty.
Mankind has proven itself through the years capable of great courage, nobility, and virtue. But we’ve also seen displayed a capacity for unspeakable evil.
Using cold, sharp instruments, saline solutions, or powerful vacuums to kill a defenseless child living in the peace, comfort, and sanctuary of their mother’s womb is the vilest evil of all. To deny that vulnerable baby the gift of life or the option of adoption solely for the sake of convenience is indefensible.
Abby Johnson worked for eight years at a Texas Planned Parenthood clinic. Her last two years she managed it. Johnson ran the clinic but was not involved directly in the aborting of babies. One day, the nurse normally tasked with viewing the abortion procedure through an ultrasound monitor in a viewing room was sick. Johnson filled in for her. It was the first time she viewed live a baby being vacuumed out of a woman’s uterus. Johnson says at that moment, she knew abortion was wrong.
“I just thought I can’t do this anymore, and it was just like a flash that hit me, and I thought, that’s it,” said Johnson.
Lisa Murkowski is about nothing if she’s not about defending and funding abortion. Even if it’s up to the point of birth. It’s long been her priority.
I wonder if Murkowski’s cold, hard heart for the unborn would tenderize, if, like Johnson, she too witnessed live a defenseless baby being sucked out of her mother’s womb.
Murkowski’s defense of the cruel procedure of ending the life of a baby at the hands of an abortionist has won her praise with Planned Parenthood, the deadliest organization in U.S. history. Planned Parenthood abortionists have murdered close to 8 million babies since the evil organization began its killing spree in 1973.
Planned Parenthood President Cecil Richards praised Murkowski in 2017 when the Alaska senator cast the deciding vote that blocked President Donald Trump’s attempt to repeal Obamacare. Murkowski voted against the repeal because the bill called for defunding Planned Parenthood. Imagine being so loyal to Planned Parenthood you’re willing to save Obamacare for it.
In 2018, Murkowski was one of just two Republicans to vote against a federal ban on abortions after 20 weeks and up to the day of birth. But Murkowski’s most consequential move to preserve the barbaric killing of millions of American babies came when she refused in 2018 to vote to confirm Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Murkowski, in a most cowardly move, voted present. That allowed her to maintain her sycophant status with Planned Parenthood without voting no.
Now Murkowski is a big question mark on the next Trump nominee for the High Court. On Friday, Murkowski said she would oppose a vote on a nominee to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg until the next president is elected. But on Tuesday, after Trump hater, Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah came out and said he would favor a vote, Murkowski waffled. Now she says she won’t rule out voting for Trump’s nominee.
Murkowski finds herself in the middle of what’s at the heart of the cultural and cold war raging in our country. You may think the war is over racism, socialism versus capitalism, or police brutality. It’s not.
Just as Democrats and the Left were obsessed with preserving slavery 160 years ago, the same is true today for abortion. They were willing to do anything, even die on the battlefield, to keep slavery legal. The same is true today when it comes to abortion.
Don’t count out anything in the days ahead in their attempts to block Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court.
Murkowski is a general in the movement to promote the culture of death through abortion in America. It’s not too late to change sides. Hopefully, she’ll have an awakening and do the right thing and support our president’s nominee.
