The Democrat Party, fresh off electoral victories last fall, is flexing its muscles on behalf of sheer, unadulterated brutality, cruelty, and savagery.
In New York, the Democrat-controlled legislature and the Democrat governor signed into law a bill that allows abortion up the day of birth. The drop-dead point for the butchers of Planned Parenthood is the scheduled day of delivery. The drop-dead point for the baby is any point before that. Even babies born alive after a botched abortion have been stripped of any guarantee of receiving medical attention. They presumably can be tossed in the corner and allowed to die.
The Democrats in New Mexico, Rhode Island, and Vermont are running as fast as they can to catch up to the wickedness in New York by advancing similar bills at warp speed.
Virginia Democrats are also trying to match them and their unmitigated evil in this race to the bottom of Dante’s 9th Circle of Hell. In testimony yesterday, the sponsor of a Virginia bill, Kathy Tran, was grilled in a committee hearing about her bill, which would repeal all legal restrictions on abortion. She was asked directly if her bill would permit a woman to request an abortion after she had dilated started the process of delivery. This was obviously an awkward question for Ms. Tran, who tried to deflect the question and has since deleted her entire Twitter account. But when the questioner would not let her wriggle off the hook, she was forced to admit an awkward truth.
Here’s the complete exchange with Republican representative Todd Gilbert:
Gilbert: So how late in the third trimester would you be able to do that?
Tran: It’s very unfortunate that our physician witnesses were not able to attend today.
Gilbert: No, I’m talking about your bill. How late in the third trimester could a physician perform an abortion if he indicated it would impair the mental health of the woman?
Tran: Or physical health.
Gilbert: Okay. I’m talking about the mental health.
Tran: Through the third trimester. The third trimester goes all the way up to 40 weeks.
Gilbert: Okay. But to the end of the third trimester?
Tran: Yep. I don’t think we have a limit in the bill.
Gilbert: Where it’s obvious a woman is about to give birth, that she has physical signs that she is about to give birth. Would that be a point at which she could still request an abortion if she was so certified? She’s dilating.
Tran: Mr. Chairman, that would be a decision that the doctor, the physician, and the woman would make at that point.
Gilbert: I understand that. I’m asking if your bill allows that.
Tran: My bill would allow that, yes.
Meanwhile, on other Democrat fronts, Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrats are purging God completely from the required oaths for witnesses before their committees. This, of course, is after they vigorously booed God out of the building and out of their party at the 2012 convention.
Robert Miller, the president of Santa Barbara Community College Board of Trustees, recently stripped the Pledge of Allegiance from trustee meetings, on the grounds of its supposed expression of “nativism” and “white nationalism.” When local resident Celeste Barber recited it from the podium anyway, she was heckled, mocked, and booed by students in attendance.
So, can a Christian vote for a Democrat? The real question is this: can any Christian, in good conscience, vote for a party that believes in murdering babies up to the moment of birth, a party that openly despises God, and a party that openly despises the flag and the nation the Founders created for us? For an intelligent observer, the answer must be a flat, unambiguous, and unqualified “No.”
