It’s apparent to me that America has been asleep at the wheel; we can no longer ignore our God-given civic responsibility and the massive impact that politics has on society. Make no mistake about it: America’s leaders play an enormous role in shaping the direction of the country. Our current administration needs to seriously reconsider the direction they are taking us. “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when the wicked man rules, the people groan” (Proverbs 29:2).
Sadly, many in government still support partial-birth abortion, even when the life of the mother is not at risk. Partial-birth abortion is a process where an unborn, often healthy, baby’s body is delivered feet first, often near full term, until only the head remains inside the womb. (The head remains in the womb so that the abortion is not considered murder. Once a baby is fully delivered, his/her life cannot be terminated.) The physician then punctures the back of the child’s skull with a sharp instrument and removes the child’s brains before delivering the dead baby.
