VIDEO March for Life Action Ad to Air Before Debate Showing Americans’ Support for Abortion Restrictions

By Ilona Schumicky | June 26, 2019

 

(CNSNews.com) – March for Life Action, which hosts the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., will run a “Consensus” ad before the Democratic primary debate tonight showing data that Americans support restrictions (consensus) on abortion, restrictions that are at odds with the candidates’ advocacy for unrestricted abortion, even up to the moment of birth.

Women in the “Consensus” ad repeat that surveys confirm 6 out of 10 pro-choice Americans believe “abortion should happen only during the first three months of pregnancy – at most.”

“That’s consensus,” the women assert, adding that “only about 1 out of 10 Americans support” the “extreme position” of abortion “right up until birth.”

The politicians, they claim, follow the extreme 1 out of 10 advocates. “It’s time for this extremism to end,” they state. “It’s time for OUR voices to be heard. It’s time for politicians to stop working for the pro-abortion lobby. And join the national consensus.”

“Over a decade of research demonstrates how out of touch the Democratic Party establishment has become with Democratic voters when it comes to abortion,” said March for Life President Jeanne Mancini in a statement. “While 2020 Democratic candidates are taking more radical stances on abortion by the day, the polling numbers are clear: 60% of Democrats want abortion limited to — at most — the first three months of pregnancy.”

“A majority of Americans also oppose any tax-payer funding for abortion,” said Mancini. “The Democratic establishment would do well to listen to the American people – or even just their base — instead of caving into the pressure of the abortion lobby.”

According to a recent Marist Poll, 75% of Americans want abortion limited to – at most – the first three months of pregnancy. This includes Republicans, Democrats, independents and those who identify themselves pro-choice.

Morning Consult’s research also adds that 60% of Democrat voters would like to hear about the recent abortion bills during the presidential debates.

The Marist data also show that a majority of Americans oppose any taxpayer funding of abortion (54 percent to 39 percent). By 20 points (55 percent to 35 percent) Americans also believe medical professionals with moral objections should be allowed to opt out of performing abortions.

More than six in 10 Americans (62 percent) oppose abortions in cases of Down Syndrome, and nearly six in 10 (59 percent) would ban abortion after 20 weeks, except to save the life of the mother.

Do We Really want to Eliminate “So Help Me God” from our Oaths?

By Michael Bresciani – June 2, 2019

 

Journalist Calvin Freiburger writing for Life Site News says:

“Democrats try to cut ‘so help you God’ from committee witness oath, backtrack after outcry.”

The oath is:

“Do you solemnly swear or affirm, under penalty of law, that the testimony that you are about to give is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God”

Reportedly, the democrats were also poised to discontinue the use of gender specific pronouns such as “his” and “her.” House Republican Chair Liz Cheney said:

“They really have become the party of Karl Marx.”

How well we remember, the outcry to remove all references to God from the 2012 Democratic National Convention platform.

Have the democrats become the party of atheism? They stand behind taking the lives of the un-born at a rate of almost 4,000 per day, while vapidly supporting every nascent perversion that sparks out from the LGBT – They are hardly the new myrmidons of social magnanimity.

Shunning all exclusivity and bigotry, are democrats now progressivism’s pompous proud perverts of preference? Do they think God need not show his presence in their hallowed halls unless he is served with a subpoena?

Let’s see – does the Bible say that God will help people to tell the truth?

“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come.” (Joh 16: 13)

Should we want to prevaricate and lie like a rug another verse stands in stark contrast?

“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” (Joh 8: 44)

If we don’t want God in the committee room we must remember that there is still someone who is willing to help.

Must we tell the democrats that the ignoble pursuit of removing God and or all reference to God from the country’s political scenery is to deny everything about America from its founding to the present?

According to the bible God can and will be very accommodating if we persist.

By means of a theological inversion of scripture this is easily ascertained. In the epistle of James we read:

Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.” (James 4: 8)

It follows that if we want to draw away from God, he will also want to draw away from us.

God knocks on the door, but we never read that he breaks down the door to get to us.

In fact, the dem’s don’t much care whether an oath is administered or not. They are very selective about what they see as truth.

They have had two years to prove that Donald Trump is a Russian agent now that it has been proven that he is not – they refuse to accept that as truth. They have had as many years to accept the truth that there is a crisis on our borders, in spite of tens of thousands of illegals pouring over the border with diseases, ill intentions and criminal backgrounds they refuse the truth that says it is a national crisis.

We should not bounce the oath, but rather we should bounce the democrats in the election of 2020.

WARNING Democrats poised to destroy religious liberty (yes, you read that correctly)

 

May 17, 2019 By Todd Starnes

 

If Democrats get their way, religious hospitals would be forced to perform abortions, Christian churches would be forced to host events that are contrary to the Bible’s teachings and Christian schools would be required to accommodate the preferences of transgender students regarding athletic teams and bathrooms.

Debate is expected to begin this week on the so-called Equality Act, legislation that would expand the 1964 Civil Rights Act to include sexual orientation and gender identity. It would also protect on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth or a related medical condition.

But it would also completely obliterate the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act, a law that stops the government from encroaching on a person’s religious liberty. In other words, the Equality Act effectively puts a bullseye on every person of faith in the nation.

I write extensively about this issue in my upcoming book, “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation.”

Rep. Jody Hice, R-Ga., told “The Todd Starnes Radio Show” that the bill will “erode the First Amendment and totally destroy religious liberties.”

“This is an attempt to silence the Christian voice,” Hice said. “This is going to literally empower the federal government to force people to contrast their deeply held religious beliefs.”

“Christians will be forced to violate their beliefs if the Equality Act passes,” declared a headline on Christian Broadcasting Network.

Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council, said no institution or person of faith would escape the Orwellian reach of the law and predicted a” catastrophic loss of religious freedom in America.”

“It is an egregious attack on the freedom to believe and live according to those beliefs. It would position the government to lord over churches and other faith-based institutions, dictating potentially who they hire, how their facilities are used, and even punishing them for not falling in step with a view of human sexuality that directly contradicts orthodox biblical teaching,” Perkins said.

Hundreds of pastors and religious leaders have already signed a letter warning that churches could be forced by the government to be opened up as public accommodations to host events and other celebrations against their conscience.

“This is extremely dangerous and I don’t think people realize how bad it is,” Family Research Council’s Travis Weber said on the “Todd Starnes Radio Show.”

When Democrats introduced the legislation last March they predicted that conservatives would “use fear” to stop the bill.

“We cannot allow claims of religious freedom to be used to discriminate against an LGBT individual,” Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., said.

In other words, faith-based flower shop owners, bakers, and even adoption agencies would be forced to engage in practices that might violate the tenets of their religious beliefs.

Weber told Starnes the Equality Act would not only gut religious liberty, it would also target biological women.

“It should be renamed the ‘Inequality Act’,” Weber said. “When you actually dig beneath the surface and see what it does to women, to children, to families across America (and) what it does to religious freedom – it’s actually incredibly unequal.”

Rep. Hice said he fears Democrats could use the bill, if it becomes law, to “totally silence and to some extent, potentially even criminalize the Christian voice when it comes to the issue of marriage.”

The House is expected to pass the legislation with some Republican votes. It’s unclear what will happen in the Senate. The White House has already stated its opposition to the legislation.

So as it now stands, the only thing standing between religious liberty and tyranny may be President Trump’s veto pen.
