Starting into the election season, Donald Trump was my last pick among Republican candidates. But today, I plan to cast my vote for Trump.
There are many reasons to choose him for President, but I might say the top one is a candidate named Hillary Clinton.
There are lots of issues at stake in this election, but at the top is the lives of unborn babies. Close to 1 million of them murdered by abortion each year in the United States.
No question where the candidates stand – the contrast couldn’t be clearer. Hear it in their own words:
“We will sign a bill banning late-term abortions and we will uphold the historic Hyde Amendment that will prevent the use of taxpayer dollars to fund that which millions of Americans find to be morally objectionable.” – Mike Pence
“I will defend Planned Parenthood. I will defend Roe v. Wade, and I will defend women’s right to make their own health care decisions.” – Hillary Clinton
“The days of public funding for Planned Parenthood are over when the Trump-Pence administration arrives in Washington, DC.” – Dawn Laguens, Executive V.P. of Planned Parenthood
Both sides point out that whoever becomes President will nominate at least one Supreme Court Justice (for life) to an equally divided Court. This watershed would send decisions one way or the other.
If there were no other issues at stake, saving lives should be enough to direct our votes. How could we knowingly pick a person who will direct our taxes to pay for abortions, who will defend the “right” to murder babies as they are on their way out of the womb – or at any stage of life?
The babies cannot speak up for themselves. But the Planned Parenthood executives at risk of losing funding – they have weighed in big-time. Who else will speak up? Voters can.
To me, the choice is clear. Vote for life.
“Open your mouth for the speechless,
In the cause of all who are appointed to die.
Open your mouth, judge righteously,
And plead the cause of the poor and needy.” – Prov. 31:8-9
