Abortion, though legal, is the moral depravity here. Not allowing women to consent to the sale of their aborted baby’s parts is illegal. Yet, as this video alleges, Planned Parenthood commonly disregards the law. And all the time, we are helping fund the moral and legal crime by paying taxes.
I’ll say it flat out: Christians should never elect a President or Congressman who is not openly and without question pro-life. Since Roe v. Wade, over 58 million babies have been aborted. Since 1970 almost 7 million have been aborted by Planned Parenthood. (Your taxes and mine have helped fund those murders.)
If you’re a Donald Trump fan, please note the following facts:
1. Even though [Trump] recently called for defunding Planned Parenthood, he is now saying that he’s open to funding those parts of Planned Parenthood that do not involve abortion. But this is not a good argument. He’s a businessman, so I assume he understands that money is fungible [mutually interchangeable]. And that is why we cannot tolerate a single dime of federal money going to Planned Parenthood. But Trump argued otherwise yesterday. His remarks led the The Daily Beast to declare that “Donald Trump is Planned Parenthood’s Favorite Republican.” His openness to support Planned Parenthood in any measure is not a pro-life position.
2. Trump claims to be pro-life, but the position he laid out yesterday on CNN follows pro-abortion logic. In his own words:
“I am pro-life and I am strongly about pro-life, but I also feel that you go with the exceptions… I’m for the exceptions and the health of the mother and the life of the mother and so is Ronald Reagan for the exceptions, by the way.”
Did you catch that? He said that he not only favors exceptions for rape, incest, and life of the mother but also for the “health” of the mother. Anyone who knows anything about the legal situation on abortion understands that the Supreme Court has interpreted “health” so broadly that it allows abortion for any reason at any stage of pregnancy. Does Trump realize that he not only just made the case for funding Planned Parenthood but also for the continuation of Roe v. Wade? This is unacceptable. I suppose it is possible that he didn’t realize what he was saying, but ignorance on abortion politics is equally unacceptable.
This is a time for visionary prolife leadership, not for dithering and weakness in the face of Planned Parenthood’s mounting body count. We need to watch the videos, and we need to watch our politicians. There is much at stake.

Amen! And Amen!
