President Donald Trump will become the first president to attend the anti-abortion “March for Life” rally in Washington, today. Good for him.
Once pro-choice, the president’s position has evolved and today he is strongly pro-life. He’s pushed for the appointment of anti-abortion judges, blocked Planned Parenthood funds, and cut taxpayer funds for abortions.
The annual March for Life Rally is an ongoing protest against the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion – Roe v. Wade – and the debate continues in 2020.
Fiercely argued, the pro-life movement focuses around a fundamental truth that human life is precious, unborn or born. While people of faith support the right to life, Roman Catholics are bound by their Church to oppose abortion, the taking of human life in the womb, yet there are Catholic politicians, who support abortion as a “woman’s right.” And an election bonus.
Today, President Trump is taking a stand by addressing the March for Life Rally. He is not, however, the only president to support the pro-life movement and its crowded rally in the nation’s capital. Presidents Reagan and Bush were pro-life supporters, but they kept their distance in the White House. Characteristically, Trump will be out front.
Controversial as it is, the abortion issue transcends politics and, in my opinion, has no place in civilized society. It violates the rule of natural law, which is the preservation of life. It should not be a choice for anyone simply because they do not want a baby. However, as we have often heard, a person can make that decision easier if they do not believe they are carrying a baby. “Tissue,” one female, Bucks County politician said. And that’s the false argument, in my opinion.
But if you believe in the sanctity of life and the beating heart of a human being lies within, the decision becomes more anguish, than right.
