VP Harris to Pro-Life Republicans: "How dare they."

Headlines read, "100,000 Pro-Life Americans March for Life, Celebrate Supreme Court Overturning Roe v. Wade."

A new enthusiasm for saving lives filled the March for Life on Friday in Washington, D.C. where at least 100,000 people gathered to march and celebrate the end of Roe v. Wade.

The Biden Administration's reaction was sickening.

Planned Parenthood is seeking a constitutional amendment for abortion.

Be informed, not misled.

As expected, the pro-life people showed up---100,000 was a conservative estimate of the number "Marching for Life."

Also as expected the press generally ignored the event or gave it little more than lip service.

Reflecting on this year’s historic march, Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life, said the pro-life movement has huge new opportunities to protect innocent human lives through education and legislation.

“As tens of thousands march today to remember Roe and the loss of life since 1973, we praise the work of pro-life people who give of their time, energy, and finances to help women facing an unexpected pregnancy. Those efforts have saved millions of lives and, post-Dobbs, will save millions more,” Tobias said.

Research by her organization puts the number of unborn babies lost to abortion under Roe at 64.4 million.

To be exact, 64,443,118.

People who respect the sanctity of Life across our country took a deep breath this weekend and said "Thank you, God. May the killing of unwanted babies one day be over. "

The Biden Administration's reaction was quite different.

VP Harris to Pro-Life Republicans: "How Dare They."

Democratic Vice President Kamala Harris said abortion rights are under attack across the United States in a speech yesterday in Tallahassee, Florida, talking about the 50th anniversary of Roe v Wade, the Court decision that supposedly discovered the "right" to abortion being overturned. 

"The right of every woman in every state in the country to make decisions about her own body is on the line," Harris said. "Republicans in Congress are now calling for an abortion ban at the moment of conception nationwide. How dare they?"

Last week, White House officials said 60 anti-abortion bills have been filed in the 2023 legislative session and over 26 million women currently live in states that have banned abortion.

"A majority of Americans oppose these attacks," Harris said, adding voters in states including Kansas, California, Michigan, Montana, Kentucky, and Vermont affirmed abortion rights in ballot proposals.

Harris was, as usual, very misleading in her statements.

Actually, nearly half of Democrats now want some restriction on abortions.

According to a new Marist poll, nearly half of Democrats support abortion restrictions after the first trimester, and over two-thirds support a ban on late-term abortions.

The poll found that 32 percent of Democrat respondents believed “abortion should be available to a woman any time she wants one during her entire pregnancy.”

Just 19 percent believe that “abortion should be allowed only during the first six months of a pregnancy.” 

Twenty-nine percent suggested a smaller window, saying that “abortion should be allowed only during the first three months of a pregnancy.”

An additional 13 percent said the procedure “should be allowed only in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother,” while three percent said it “should be allowed only to save the life of the mother,” and four percent said it “should never be permitted under any circumstance.”

In total, 49 percent of Democrats said they believed in at least some level of restriction on abortions.

The poll also found that only four percent of Republican respondents believe “abortion should be available to a woman any time she wants one during her entire pregnancy.” Forty-two percent, however, said it “should be allowed only in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother.”

VP Harris's speech was part of a larger effort by the pro-abortion movement.

What to expect in the days ahead in the fight for life.

Ironically the pro-abortion movement is trying to claim the moral high ground. In fact, that ironically puts both sides claiming moral high ground in the fight for life. 

The fight for life will now move to the state capitals and the courts.

The rally VP Harris spoke to in Florida was part of the "National Women's March," which is a march for abortion.

We, pro-life people, are celebrating real progress in the fight for life, while pro-abortion people are fighting to maintain their pro-abortion activities in states with pro-abortion leadership---like Washington, Oregon, and California.

The bottom line is a defiant, "the end justifies any means" position on the part of those who are pro-abortion.

Alexis McGill Johnson, president, and CEO of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, in a recent Teen Vogue op-ed said, "We have to make sure our rights don't ebb and flow with every election cycle", and suggested that the goal is to ultimately amend the US Constitution to guarantee abortion success.

This is why she says, "I'm Letting Go of Roe v. Wade on What Would Be Its 50th Anniversary."

She continues: "I’m letting go of Roe, because I’m betting on better for generations to come. Young people know that movements are never settled. Despite a decades-long fight for reproductive freedom, you are growing up with fewer reproductive rights and voting rights than your grandparents and parents. We’ve seen this cycle before: When people have their rights stripped away, they get sad, they get mad, and then they get back out there and fight."

In their worldview, the right to kill is equal to the right to life---and they are willing to fight for it.

Do not grow weary in well doing. Stand strong.

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Engaged. Be Prayerful.
