On Saturday evening, April 25, 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told the Women in the World Summit that the path to Abortion Nirvana will only open up by changing religion, culture, and values to accommodate it:
“Far too many women are denied access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth, and laws don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper,” Clinton said. “Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will,” she explained. “And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed. As I have said and as I believe, the advancement of the full participation of women and girls in every aspect of their societies is the great unfinished business of the 21st century and not just for women but for everyone — and not just in far away countries but right here in the United States.”
Responding to the radical position of Mrs. Clinton, Ed Morrissey, writing for Hot Air, observes, “In one sense, this shows just how extreme the pro-abortion caucus actually is. As Hillary admits here — albeit unwittingly — the at-will destruction of the unborn goes against religious beliefs, long-held cultural values, and the structural “biases” that exist to recognize the value of human life. That’s what the “clump of cells” fallacy has to overcome, and as Hillary and the Left have discovered, it’s a tall order. And it’s not just abortion, but also same-sex marriage and forced participation in it, euthanasia dressed up as “right to die” movements, and the rest. “
As presidential candidates posture for votes in the general election several truths emerge. Some are worthy of observation.
First, there are occasions when a presidential candidate will honestly state what is on their heart. Mrs. Clinton has just stated openly and honestly that she is for the wholesale slaughter of the unborn at any cost and without any concern. In this she is no different from her once rival, President Obama, who voted for partial birth abortions and even the destruction of a child outside the womb that survived an abortion attempt. Rush Limbaugh calls abortion the Holy Grail of the Liberal community, and he is not wrong. The honesty of Mrs. Clinton on this matter is refreshing though for someone who is a Christian, and prolife, her position is horrifying.
Second, some presidential candidates are more extreme than others. Political wisdom dictates that a politician be moderate in tone in order to attract Independent voters, but a politically Liberal candidate, such as Mrs. Clinton, cannot be moderate. Liberals are extremists because their ideology compels them to be that way. Their ideology is rooted in evil, and evil is militant. Evil hurts others. Evil is without mercy, as the slaughter of the unborn illustrates. Evil is self-centered, manifested in the case of Mrs. Clinton by the Rose Law Firm Billing Records Gate (1996), Travel Gate (1993), Heath-Care Gate (1997), File Gate (1996) Cattle-Future Gate (1978-79), Whitewater Gate (1994), and the Clinton Foundation cash scandals. Supporters of Mrs. Clinton will grow emotional in her defense and ask, “What difference does it make?” The answer is this, “Evil makes a difference in the world. Evil hurts people, while advancing a selfish agenda.”
Third, any position which a presidential candidate promotes should not conflict with the known will of God. Long ago the prophet Isaiah spoke against those who called right that which is morally wrong. “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes And clever in their own sight! 23 Who justify the wicked for a bribe, And take away the rights of the ones who are in the right! (Isaiah 5:20-21, 23, New American Standard). Calling right, as Mrs. Clinton does, the legalization of the slaughter of the innocent, homosexuality, gay marriages, and marijuana, is still morally wrong. Let the word go forth from one end of the universe to the other, “THAT WHICH IS MORALLY WRONG CAN NEVER BE LEGALLY RIGHT”.
