Liberals are losing their minds, once again, after Alabama signed a bill into law, virtually making any abortion in the state a felony.
Now, there’s no doubt that this law will be challenged in the courts and likely make its way to the Supreme Court. But nevertheless, the move by Alabama’s female governor of signing the bill into law has the Democratic candidates running for president talking.
On Thursday, Kirsten Gillibrand, which speaking in Georgia, labeled laws against abortion as being “against the Christian faith.”
How did the New York senator and struggling Democratic presidential candidate come to her conclusion? Well, Gillibrand, a Catholic, said abortion laws, like the one signed in Alabama, violate free will.
“If you are a person of the Christian faith, one of the tenants of our faith is free will. One of the tenants of our democracy is that we have a separation of church and state, and under no circumstances are we supposed to be imposing our faith on other people. And I think this is an example of that effort.”
Yes, free will is a central idea in the Christian faith, Gillibrand is correct. However, other such ideas crucial to Christianity are protecting the innocent and the sanctity of life.
Perhaps Gillibrand missed these verses when reading her Bible:
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5
“Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him.Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.” – Psalm 127, 3-5
“For You formed my inward parts: You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.” Psalm 139, 13-16
“But when God, who had set me apart even from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, was pleased to reveal His Son to me, so that I might preach Him among the Gentiles.” – Galatians 1:15-16
