Abortion and the Healthcare Bill

Last week, Senator Elizabeth Warren released a video during which she referred to the Republican healthcare proposal as “blood money.”

Senator Bernie Sanders tweeted: “…Thousands of people will die if the Republican health care bill becomes law.”

Chad Kubis (@ChadKubisNC) made an astute observation on Twitter yesterday: “Democrats believe that a GOP healthcare (bill) will kill them yet don’t seem to bat an eye when supporting inhumane abortions…”

It’s true. Both Senators and virtually the entire Democratic Party these days are strong supporters of abortion rights.

When comparing abortion to healthcare comments about Americans dying because of specific policy decisions, one must consider when life actually begins.

Let’s turn to the Bible. In Psalm 139, David says of God, “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you,¬†when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.”

If the Bible is true, God clearly knows us before we are born. Considering this brings the abortion question in line with Biblical truth. One cannot logically be pro-choice, believing abortion is not the taking of human life, and believe the Bible is the true Word of God.

Americans must decide. One cannot live in both worlds.
