The Republican Senate has passed an $854 billion federal spending bill that continues to fully fund Planned Parenthood (PP) and many other liberal agenda items. Rand Paul proposed an amendment to take funding for PP out of the bill but the GOP leadership shot it down. And despite all of his rhetoric criticizing the bill, Donald Trump is sure to sign the bill into law this week. Count on it.
Christians and conservatives who think that the GOP and Donald Trump are "pro-life" are deluded beyond all remedy. A GOP Congress and White House can't even defund Planned Parenthood, much less overturn Roe v Wade.
Trump's two years in office now marks a total of six years of a Republican majority in control of the White House and both houses of Congress (four years of GOP control under GW Bush and now two years under Trump) and Roe v Wade still stands as the law of the land and Planned Parenthood continues to slaughter unborn babies with taxpayer funding.
Under Article. III. Section. 2. of the U.S. Constitution, a genuine pro-life Congress and White House could overturn Roe v Wade anytime it wanted to. Yet, for six years now, the so-called pro-life GOP has refused to do it. It has even refused to stop forcing U.S. taxpayers to underwrite the killing of unborn babies.
And Trump's choice for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, has never made a ruling challenging Roe v Wade. Instead, he has said that Roe is "settled law" and that women (and teen age girls) "have a right to abortion." But all of this emphasis on a Supreme Court pick being the answer to legalized abortion only serves to reinforce the fallacious and unconstitutional doctrine of judicial supremacy. If Trump and the Republican Congress wanted to end legalized abortion-on-demand, they could have already done it.
As I said, any Christian or conservative who believes that Donald Trump and the Republican Party are pro-life is deluded beyond all remedy.
