Families, communities, and nations are stronger when babies are protected. Babies have always been important for survival of society. In ancient days, men selected wives who would be faithful and who were strong enough to bear and rear children. Women mated with men who had the skills and abilities necessary to provide protection and security for her and her children.
Babies are still essential for the strength
of any society, but current civilization does not seem to recognize its peril.
The birthrate worldwide has fallen below replenishment numbers. The United
States is about even but only because of immigration.
Yet, women demand choice. They desire the
freedom to be carefree in their sexual liaisons, while rejecting responsibility
for any child that is conceived. The irony is that women in the United States
are aborting their babies while the nation’s birthrate is steadily falling.
In case you have been living in a cave or
off the grid, there is a presidential election this year. The choice has never
been clearer between the two political parties. The Democrat Party supports the
right for a woman to kill her baby any time up to birth. If the baby survives the
abortion, Democrats say that the mother can allow the baby to die after it is
born alive. Republicans are the right-to-life party and believe that every life
has value – from conception to natural and dignified death.
President Donald Trump is the most
right-to-life president in recent history, and he continues to grow stronger in
his fight for life. On Wednesday, September 23, 2020, he announced that “he will sign an executive order to ensure that babies who are born alive receive proper medical care.” Apparently, he has grown tired of waiting for Congress to
do something concrete about the problem.
In 2002, President George W. Bush signed
into law a bill extending legal protection to infants born alive at any stage
of development, including after an abortion. The law, however, lacked
Legislation called the Born-Alive Abortion
Survivors Protection Act, considered in 2019 and again in 2020, would include
criminal consequences for health care providers who violate the 2002 law. It
also would require that proper medical care be given by the health care
practitioner present if an infant is born alive.
The bill that did pass Congress and was
signed into law did not include power to enforce it. The second bill that would
empower the first bill cannot get through Congress to be signed by the
President. Meanwhile, more babies are killed or left to die.
Trump did not go into details about what
would be included in his executive order. However, earlier proposals had requirements
for “health care professionals to treat a baby born alive after an attempted
abortion the same as medical professionals would treat any other newborn.” Trump
declared, “I will always defend the sacred right to life” when he spoke at the
16th annual – and first virtual -- National Catholic Prayer
When Democrats refuse to take action to
preserve the lives of unborn and born infants, it is time to replace them. I
encourage all people who believe that life is sacred to vote Republican. Let
our nation re-elect Donald Trump who will continue to fight for all Americans –
born and unborn, keep the Senate, and take the House of Representatives. VOTE
RED and help Trump to make America as great as it can be!
