In this nation, is all human life treated as sacred, or is it regarded as disposable? This question may be most easily answered by considering how we treat the most vulnerable among us.
"Yesterday, President Donald Trump took a powerful stand for life, as he announced the Born-Alive Executive Order, which aims to "ensure that all precious babies born alive, no matter their circumstances, receive the medical care that they deserve." The president added that "[t]his is our sacrosanct moral duty."
"I couldn't agree more! But I am appalled that such commonsense protections required an executive order from our Commander in Chief. The Born-Alive Infant Abortion Survivors Act has been introduced in Congress on multiple occasions, but every attempt to pass this vital legislation has failed. Just this February, almost every Senate Democrat voted against the Act, with only three having the moral courage to protect a newborn baby who survives a botched act of barbarism.
"You've heard me say that every human life is precious, and no child's life is expendable. I'm going to keep saying it until this entire nation rises up and declares it with me, or until I no longer have breath to speak. There is nothing more precious than the right to life itself. When we fail to honor and protect the God-given dignity and worth of every human being—from conception to natural death—we betray ourselves and our Creator.
"I am profoundly grateful to the president and his administration for taking this action, as well as the many other steps they have initiated to protect the sanctity of human life. I am also deeply concerned by the unwillingness of so many elected officials and candidates to support the fundamental freedom to live. In November, we will choose our nation's path forward. I implore you to consider that the two major parties in this country hold disparate views about the sanctity of human life and the personhood of the unborn. Please vote accordingly!"
