The debacle in the committee hearing room in Austin, Texas last week exposed the core of the problem with abortion. It all comes down to the humanity, and the God-given, unalienable, equal rights of the individual child, and whether or not the perpetrators who seek to slaughter them will be punished in the same way other murderers are dealt with under the law.
In other words, it all came down to the same things it came down to in front of the Supreme Court in 1973. Prior to Roe vs. Wade, Texas had unjust, immoral, unconstitutional laws on the books that deprived the unborn child of their equal rights, and punished their murderers differently, and much more leniently, than the murderers of those fortunate enough to have passed through a birth canal. Which, of course, provided the pretext the wicked Blackmun court needed to dehumanize, to depersonify, the unborn child. Which, of course, then led to the cold-blooded, premeditated murder of more then sixty million innocent, helpless, defenseless children.
And what was the response of Pro-Life, Inc., and their faithful minions in the Texas legislature when presented with a just, constitutional bill that would criminalize all abortions in their state? They were steadfast in their determination to make the exact same moral, constitutional, and legal error that led to Roe in the first place, even though more than 98% of the more than three hundred citizens who testified in front of their committee spent more than eight hours, late into the night, explaining to them in great depth, in exquisite detail, why doing this would be a gross violation of the most sacred obligations of their solemn oaths.
And the innocent blood continues to flow.
