The pendulum swings . . . in a favorable direction

The three great atrocities in our country’s history are Native American mistreatment, slavery, and abortion.  I’m stunned that now in the 21st century we permit the maiming, torturing, and murdering of millions of babies.  We point to human rights violations that occur all over the globe, but our own actions scream “hypocrisy”.   The Holocaust resulted in the killing of six million European Jews by Adolph Hitler’s Nazi Germany and we memorialize it as an atrocious blot on human history, yet the good ole USA has the blood of 8X as many babies on its hands.  How any human with a heart, brain, and soul could rationalize that such a practice is our right is beyond comprehension.  It is pure evil.  

Not all is so grim.  This year, 2018, marks a beginning of the pendulum swinging the other way in the direction of what is good and right.  Several state legislatures have taken steps to quell the abortion tide that has swept over our country and drowned many with its moral decay.  I’m sad to report that two states, Washington and Oregon, instituted new laws to expand abortion.  They must worship Moloch, the Canaanite god of child sacrifice.  However, I’m delighted to report that other states–namely, Iowa, Nebraska, Indiana, Idaho, and Mississippi–have acted responsibly and proactively toward what is so obviously right.  

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds signed the “heartbeat” bill into law.  It bans abortions once a fetal heartbeat has been detected, which is about six weeks.  Exceptions are made in cases of rape, incest or medical emergency.

Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts approved a bill that cuts off federal Title X funding to Planned Parenthood.  This action is perfectly legal and a giant step in shutting down abortion mills in the state.  I hope other states follow this creative approach.

Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb signed a new law that will require medical providers who treat women for complications arising from abortions to report detailed patient information to the state.  It’s a small step, but one nonetheless.  

Idaho Governor Butch Otter signed a bill into law that informs patients seeking medical abortions that drug-induced abortions may be halted halfway.  In short, it gives women a second chance to change their minds midstream in the process.  

Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant signed into law a bill that bans abortions after 15 weeks of gestation.  Within an hour the state was hit with a lawsuit, which was exactly the state’s desired response.  The objective is to take this new law through the courts to hopefully overturn Roe vs. Wade.  

These results have emerged in the last couple of months.  I consider it awesomely good news!  There is hope for our country in protecting its most vulnerable citizens.
