The Democrats Number One Agenda: Fund Abortion

The murder of unborn babies is the Democrats’ top agenda! By their fruits you shall know them. The facts speak for themselves (see below). Make no mistake, this is ungodly, Satanic to its core and pure evil!

Democrats take control of House, immediately introduce bill to fund abortions worldwide

The federal government has been partially shut down since Trump, facing pressure from conservatives, decided at the last minute in December to reject a government funding bill that didn’t include $5 billion to begin constructing the southern border wall he campaigned on. While the media is filled with distress over the shutdown and uncertainty over whether Democrats or Republicans will blink first, most of the government was already funded and remains in operation.

Following her return to the office of House Speaker Thursday, Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi announced that her party would be “offering the Senate Republican Appropriations [Committee] legislation to reopen the government later today,” Fox News reports. The proposal would fund the Department of Homeland Security until February 8 and other federal departments until the end of September.

The bill has been a political non-starter because it lacks wall funding, however, and pro-lifers are warning that it would also repeal the Mexico City Policy (now called Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance) that Trump reinstated shortly after taking office and later expanded. That would make foreign entities that commit or promote abortions once again eligible for foreign aid.

The plan would also give $37.5 million to the United Nations Population Fund, from which Trump withdrew in 2017 over its participation in China’s forced abortion regime.

“This move shows the House Democrats are so radically pro-abortion that they are more concerned with pushing their abortion agenda on the American people than finding common ground to end the government shutdown,” Live Action president Lila Rose responded. While Trump and Senate Republicans “failed last session to pass a law preventing the American taxpayer from funding Planned Parenthood,” they “now have a duty to stand firm and block such outrageous attempts to have the American taxpayer fund and promote abortion programs across the globe.”

“News that abortion is the leading cause of death worldwide is a tragedy of international proportions, but asking U.S. taxpayers to pay for it is an offensive misuse of scarce resources,” Students for Life of America president Kristan Hawkins said. “Taxpayers have had enough of the abortion industry’s vision of abortion as the United States’ number one export. As a bipartisan matter, we should help women and children at home and abroad, without making ending life the goal of U.S. policy.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already rejected the proposal as a “political sideshow,” declaring that the Senate “will not waste its time considering a Democratic bill which cannot pass this chamber and which the president will not sign.”

How the shutdown standoff will end remains unclear. Conservative pundit Ann Coulter, who was one of Trump’s earliest and most passionate supporters, predicted this week the president “will fold in the end,” though others argue he can satisfy supporters by funding the wall through other revenue sources not reliant on Congress.

In July 2017, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) suggested the federal funding that goes to Planned Parenthood be directed to the border wall instead.

As for abortion policy under the new Congress, pro-lifers are largely resigned to two more years without direct legislation to defund Planned Parenthood or otherwise restrict abortion, though they remain optimistic that Trump will continue to find incremental steps for life via executive action, and hope Republicans’ expanded Senate majority will enable the confirmation of judges with clear pro-life credentials.

Democrat opposition to Pelosi’s re-election as speaker falls flat

Pelosi is a self-declared “Catholic” with a 100 percent pro-abortion voting record, who has said that promoting “diversity” among Capitol Hill staff will be one of her priorities in the new Congress. On multiple occasions, however, she has also displayed the political acumen to deemphasize left-wing causes like abortion for the sake of winning over Americans on economic or healthcare grounds.

After the November midterms, the New York Times revealed that Pelosi helped Democrats return to power in part by counseling “restraint” against fighting over things like Planned Parenthood in favor of a focused message on more mainstream concerns. “Those things are in our DNA, but they are not in our talking points,” she reportedly said on multiple occasions.

In April, she defended her support of “pro-life” Democrats like Illinois Rep. Dan Lipinski on the grounds that his election would count toward a “pro-choice gavel when we win the Congress,” and during the campaign downplayed Democrat calls to impeach President Donald Trump. Conservatives suspect such assurances were merely meant to hide Democrats’ true intentions so as not to provoke GOP voter turnout.

The Hill reports that 15 House Democrats, most of whom were just elected, opposed Pelosi’s re-election as speaker, though they didn’t agree on a single alternative and their ranks were far short of the “dozens” who had previously distanced themselves from her.

“On day one of the new Congress, Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats are already trying to foist a radical pro-abortion agenda on the nation,” Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said. “The House’s spending bill would…[make] taxpayers complicit in the exportation of abortion and destruction of countless unborn children around the world. This is unconscionable and we oppose the bill in the strongest terms.”

House Democrats seek to restore abortion group funding on first day of new Congress

The newly sworn-in Democrat-led House of Representatives plans to vote Thursday on a spending bill to end the federal government shutdown that includes a provision to provide funding to Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups.

Pro-life groups and prominent conservatives are speaking out against Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats for slipping language into the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2019 that would among other things restore federal funding to overseas organizations that provide and promote abortion.

Such funding was stripped from organizations like International Planned Parenthood by one of President Donald Trump’s first acts as president when he expanded what was known as the Mexico City Policy preventing foreign aid dollars from being used to fund organizations that perform abortions overseas.

Trump’s policy is called Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance and forces NGOs to agree as a condition of receiving federal funding that they will not “perform or actively promote abortion as a method of family planning.”

Abortion advocates lambasted the move and labeled it a “global gag rule.” But on the first day of the new Congress, the Pelosi-led House are trying to repeal that provision.

According to the Washington Examiner, the spending bill will also increase funding by $5 million for the United Nations Population Fund, which has been criticized by pro-life organizations and the Trump State Department who say that the entity participates in a program of “coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization.”

“On day one of the new Congress, Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats are already trying to foist a radical pro-abortion agenda on the nation,” Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the national pro-life grassroots organization Susan B. Anthony List said in a statement. “A strong majority of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortion. Acting on the clearly expressed will of the American people, President Trump and his administration have taken a bold stand for life by stopping billions of dollars in foreign aid from being used to push abortion overseas.”

Dannenfelser said that the House spending bill would again make “taxpayers complicit in the exportation of abortion and destruction of countless unborn children around the world.”

“This is unconscionable and we oppose the bill in the strongest terms,” she said.

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, a former presidential candidate, slammed the House bill in a statement posted to his website. He assured that such a bill has “no chance” of actually becoming law.

“Apparently, Democrats in their first day as the House majority intend on pushing divisive, pro-abortion policies that would allow taxpayer dollars to flow to international organizations that promote and perform abortions,” Rubio stressed.  “This is nothing more than far-left wing theater as these policies have no chance of passing the Senate or being signed by the President.”

Rubio vowed to ensure that the bill is defeated.

Pro-lifers and conservatives were elated when Trump reinstated the Mexico City Policy in 2017 and many viewed it as a fulfillment of part of his campaign promise to advance pro-life policies.

According to the Christian conservative advocacy group Family Research Council, the House will vote on two spending bills Thursday. The second is a short-term continuing resolution to keep the government running until Feb. 8.

As the federal government has been in a partial shut down for 12 days over Trump’s desire to build a border wall, the House spending bill does not include funding for the wall.

Although the Democrats have the votes to pass the legislation, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has vowed to block the bill in the Senate.

“The legislation that House Democrats are reportedly planning to introduce would not be a serious contribution to these negotiations. It isn’t comprehensive. It ignores the needs of border security,” McConnell said in a statement.  “It’s exactly the kind of proposal you’d expect if the incoming House Democrats were choosing to stage a political sideshow rather than do the hard work of helping to govern the country. A total non-starter.”

“Will these new Democrats come to Washington ready to roll up their sleeves, work together, and make laws?” McConnell asked.  “Or are they going to waste time on partisan show votes that will do nothing to move the country forward? That’s the question: Political performance art or responsible governance? We’ll get an early signal in the next few days.”

 

Abortion and Worshipping the Demon-God Moloch

Deuteronomy 18:10, One who causes his son or daughter to pass through the fire. This was done in honor of the Canaanite deity Moloch (see Lev 18:21 and 20:1–6). The name moloch in Hebrew means “king” with the root of the word meaning “to rule or reign.” Child sacrifice (the ancient form of modern abortion/infanticide), though a pagan practice that
YHVH abhorred, was practiced by both houses or kingdoms of Israel as they drifted into syncretism with the heathen cultures around them (see 1 Kgs 11:7; 2 Kgs 16:3; 21:6; 23:10,13; Jer 7:31; 19:5; Ezek 16:20; 23:37). Baal appears to be a synonym of Molach (see Jer 19:5 and the Ency. Britan. eleventh edit., vol. 18, p. 676). The dead bodies of sacrificed children were thrown into the garbage dump of the Valley of Hinnom or Tophet just below the Temple Mount in Jerusalem (Jer 7:31; 19:5–6). Apparently, the children were not burned alive, but were slain (by knife) like any other sacrifice before being thrown into the fire and then into the garbage dump (Ibid.). The ancients sacrificed their children to appease their bloodthirsty gods of prosperity, sensuality and fertility (The Story of Civilization, vol. 1, by Will Durant, pp. 66–67, 297). 

What can we learn from these random pieces of information concerning the ancient practice of child sacrifice? It was done in honor of their deity; in other words, their idol was the king that ruled their lives. What is the chief deity in modern America and most everywhere else in the world? Money and wealth? Sex and pleasure? Fun and entertainment? In ancient times, children were killed by a knife, thrown into the fire and then into the garbage dump. Today, what happens in America?

Some Good News! Pro-Life Student Activism on the Rise (Hopefully)

Kudos to these young people for taking a stand against the murder of babies euphemistically called abortion. May more bold and righteous young people continue to rise up against this evil!

Bet you didn’t hear about this in the mainstream media. At the same time, an anti-god progressive liberal burps or sneezes, and it makes national headlines all over America!

Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity? (Ps 94:26)

Pro-Life Students Partake in Walkout for Unborn

Patrina Mosley

By Patrina Mosley | April 12, 2018 | 12:05 PM EDT

Rocklin High School student Brandon Gillespie, who led the organization of #prolifewalkout, scheduled for April 11 at 10AM. (YouTube, CBS 13 Sacramento)

America’s most pro-life generation is at it again. Pro-life students across the country partook in a planned school walkout on Wednesday morning.

After a California high school history teacher was suspendedfor talking with students about whether pro-life students would receive the same support for their human rights concerns as those who engaged in the gun violence walkout, student Brandon Gillespie was inspired to organize a pro-life walkout for his school that has now spread across the country.

With the help of Students for Life of America, the nation’s largest pro-life organization with more than 1,200 groups in all 50 states, Gillespie and other pro-life students meeting on their campuses will receive “resources, legal help, and training for all who want to take a stand for life, to remember those lost to abortion, to call for support for mothers and their pre-born infants, and to demand that Planned Parenthood be defunded,” says Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America.

Also, the Thomas More Society will be there to offer “legal help, free of charge, to students as they prepare to exercise their constitutional rights to stand up for life and to students who encounter a pro-abortion double standard at their schools,” said Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Law Center.

Gillespie says, “I just want to spread awareness about the cruel things that are happening in Planned Parenthood clinics across the country, the cruel murder of these children who have done nothing wrong.”

Gillespie has inspired other students across the country to stand courageously for the dignity and sanctity of life.

Luke Gutierrez, 16, has organized a pro-life walkout for his school simply because he didn’t see anybody else doing it. He said he takes a stand against the one-sided agenda pushed to him and his fellow peers every day because he knows God created every person with a purpose, and that view should be represented as well.

In a promotional video for his pro-life walkout, he points out that 17 people tragically died in the Parkland high school shooting, but roughly 1,700 people die every day because of abortion.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 600,000 abortions were performed in the U.S. in 2014—with Planned Parenthood responsible for more than a third. In 2016, Planned Parenthood claimed to have aborted 881 babies per day—or one every 98 seconds. Since Roe v. Wade, we have lost more than 60 million people to abortion.

Gutierrez admits he is usually a shy guy and does not like to get out of his comfort zone, but he knows “[there are] issues in life you have to stand for and even though I’m a kid … if we don’t stand up for them, who will?”

This generation is showing no fear in the face of liberal bias in the classroom and on university campuses. There are some things that pro-life students are seeing as more important than getting their peers’ and teachers’ approval.

The moral conscience of our nation is rising. The voices of victims of the abortion industry are becoming louder. The wounded are becoming warriors, and abortion is becoming unthinkable.

As a pro-life generation, we hope to one day take our future grandchildren to an abortion clinic-turned-museum to remember a time when the unborn had no voice, and to declare, “No more.”

Indiana Adopts Law That Counts Unborn Children as Persons

Please pray that what has happened in Indiana will spread across this nation! This is a major step in the right direction in the spiritual battle against abortion. May YHVH bless the governor and legislators of Indiana for this bold action.

Indiana Adopts Law That Counts Unborn Children as Persons

INDIANA ADOPTS LAW THAT COUNTS UNBORN CHILDREN AS PERSONS


The state of Indiana has adopted a new law that essentially grants personhood to unborn children.

Relevant Magazine reports that Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb has signed a bill into law that allows suspects to be charged with murder if they harm a pregnant woman who then loses her unborn child.

Pro-life supporters are championing this bill, as it acknowledges the personhood of unborn children. The law, however, does not apply to legally obtained abortions.

The law also brings to mind the Old Testament passage which says:

“Now suppose two men are fighting, and in the process they accidentally strike a pregnant woman so she gives birth prematurely. If no further injury results, the man who struck the woman must pay the amount of compensation the woman’s husband demands and the judges approve. But if there is further injury, the punishment must match the injury: a life for a life” (Exodus 21:22-23).

This law was brought to the attention of the state’s lawmakers by a woman whose 11-months-pregnant daughter was shot and killed. The woman felt it was unjust that the killer could not be tried for the death of the unborn child as well as the death of her daughter.

The law will go into effect in July 2018.

 

 

President Trump—First President to Attend March for Life

No wonder the devil-worshipping, murderous, pro-abortion “progressive” left hates President Trump so much and want to destroy him!  When all the God and Bible haters in a country non-stop hate someone as much as they do Donald Trump, maybe it means that that person isn’t so bad after all. Think about it. No more commentary is necessary. This article speaks for itself.  Natan

VIDEO, TRANSCRIPT: WHILE LEFT MARCHES TO ABORT, TRUMP ATTENDS MARCH FOR LIFE

Trump first president to attend in 45 years

President Donald Trump speaks at the March For Life anti-abortion rally in Washington D.C. where over 100,000 are expected to be in attendance.Trump will be the first president to attend the march in 45 years.Meanwhile, the left is holding another women’s march, which focuses on abortion rights among other issues.

Read a transcript of the President’s pro-life speech:

Thank you very much, that’s so nice, sit please.

We have tens of thousands of people watching us right down the road – tens of thousands – so I congratulate and at least we picked a beautiful day. You can’t get a more beautiful day.

I wanna thank our Vice President Mike Pence for that wonderful introduction. I also want to thank you and Karen for being true champions for life. Thank you and thank Karen.

Today I’m honored and really proud to be the first president to stand with you here at the White House to address the 45th March for Life – that’s very, very special – 45th March for Life. And this is a truly remarkable group.

Today tens of thousands of families, students and patriots – and really just great citizens – gather here in our nation’s capital. You come from many backgrounds, many places, but you all come for one beautiful cause: to build a society where life is celebrated, protected and cherished.

The March for Life is a movement born out of love. You love your families, you love your neighbors, you love our nation and you love every child born and unborn because you believe that every life is sacred, that every child is a precious gift from God.

[ applause ]

We know that life is the greatest miracle of all. We see it in the eyes of every new mother who cradles that wonderful innocent and glorious newborn child, in her loving arms.

I want to thank every person here today and all across our country who works with such big hearts and tireless devotion to make sure that parents have the care and support they need to choose life.

Because of you, tens of thousands of Americans have been born and reached their full God-given potential. Because of you, you’re living witnesses of this year’s March for Life theme, and that theme is “Love saves lives.”

[ applause ]

As you all know, Roe v. Wade has resulted in some of the most permissive abortion laws anywhere in the world. For example, in the United States, it’s one of seven countries to allow elective late term abortions along with China, North Korea and others.

Right now in a number of states, the laws allow a baby to be born from his or her mother’s womb in the ninth month. [sic] It is wrong, it has to change. Americans are more and more pro-life, you see that all the time. In fact, only 12% of Americans support abortion on-demand at any time.

Under my administration we will always defend the very first right in the Declaration of Independence and that is the “right to life.”

[ applause ]

Tomorrow will mark exactly one year since I took the oath of office and I will say our country is doing really well. Our economy is perhaps the best it’s ever been.

You look at the job numbers, you look at the companies pouring back into our country you look at the stock market at an all-time high, unemployment 17-year low, unemployment for African American workers at the lowest mark in the history of our country, unemployment for Hispanic at a record low in history, unemployment for women, think of this, at an 18-year low.

We’re really proud of what we’re doing and during my first week in office I reinstated a policy first put in place by President Ronald Reagan, the Mexico City policy.

[ applause ]

I strongly supported the House of Representatives’ “Pain capable” bill, which would end painful, late-term abortions nationwide.

And I call upon the Senate to pass this important law and send it to my desk for signing.

[ applause ]

On the National Day of Prayer, I signed an Executive Order to protect religious liberty. Very proud of that.

[ applause ]

Today I’m announcing that we have just issued a new proposal to protect conscious rights and religious freedoms of doctors, nurses and other medical professionals – so important.

I have also just reversed the previous administration’s policy that restricted states’ efforts to direct Medicaid funding away from the abortion facilities that violate the law.

[ applause ]

We are protecting the sanctity of life and the family as the foundation for our society, but this movement can only succeed with the heart and the soul and the prayer of the people.

Here with us today is Mary Anna Donario from Greensboro, North Carolina. Where is Mary Anna? Come on up here. Come. Nice to see you.

Mary Anna was 17 when she found out she was pregnant.

At first she felt like she had no place to turn, but when she told her parents they responded with total love, total affection, total support… great parents, right?

I thought you were going to say that. I had to be careful.

[laughter]

Mary Anna bravely chose life and soon gave birth to her son. She named him Benedict which means blessing. Mary Anna was so grateful for her parents’ love and support that she felt called to serve those who were not as fortunate as her. She joined with others in her community to start a maternity home to care for homeless women who were pregnant. That’s great. They named it “Room At The Inn.”

Today Mary Anna and her husband Don are the parents of six beautiful children, and her eldest son Benedict and her daughter Maria join us here today.

Where are they? Come on over. [ applause ] That’s great.

Over the last 15 years Room At The Inn has provided housing, child care, counseling, education and job training to more than 400 women.

Even more importantly, it has given them hope. It has shown each woman that she is not forgotten, that she is not alone and she, really now, has a whole family of people who will help her succeed. That hope is the true gift of this incredible movement that brings us together today. It is the gift of friendship, the gift of mentorship and a gift of encouragement, love and support.

Those are beautiful words and those are beautiful gifts.

And most importantly of all, it is the gift of life itself.

That is why we march. That is why we pray, and that is why we declare that America’s future will be filled with goodness, peace, joy, dignity and life for every child of God.

Thank you to the March for Life – special, special people – and we are with you all the way.

May God bless you and may God bless America. thank you.

Thank you. Thank you very much.

[ applause ]

 

Exposing the Dark Side: The Bible on Blood Letting and Drinking, Human Sacrifice, Pedophilia, Abortion, Self-Cutting and Tattoos

The subject of blood is a gory one that few like to talk about. This Torah deals with this subject as the study below shows.

The Bible teaches about both righteous and wicked practices related to the proper and improper treatment and use of blood. The Testimony of Yeshua has a lot to say about the blood of Yeshua, which is at the center of the gospel message. At the same time, the devil has twisted the concept of blood as part of his scheme to kill, steal and destroy via murderous and heinous satanic rituals, deviant practices and even some legally accepted procedures like abortion.

As our society becomes more post-Christian and slides irrevocably into heathenism and outright devil or Baal worship, we must not bury our heads in the  proverbial sand and ignore the realities of the present gross evil darkness that is enveloping everything around it. As children of the light, we must stand for righteousness, which means we must know enough about the dark side to properly oppose it. May this brief article help in this process.  Natan

Leviticus 17:1–14, Exploring the concepts of sacrifice, blood letting and eating blood. The sacrificing of animals as an act of worship or for any reason is a foreign concept in our modern, secularized society, but this was not the case in the ancient biblical world. Concomitant with sacrifices is the idea of freewill offerings,which, in the ancient world, were often made together as an act of worship to various deities.

With regard to sacrifices, man’s first act of worship outside the Garden of Eden was to make offerings and sacrifice to Elohim (Gen 4:1–4). Making a sacrifice to Elohim was also Noah’s first act of worship after the flood (Gen 8:20). The same is true of Abraham upon receiving the covenant from Elohim (Gen 12:6). At key points in his spiritual journey, Abraham repeated this same act of worship (Gen 12:8; 13:3, 18). The same is true of the Israelites who after having received the Torah at Sinai made a sacrifice to Elohim as they entered into a covenantal agreement with him (Exod 24:4). Subsequently, YHVH instructed Continue reading

 

Greetings from Oregon, the Hitlarian, Holocaust Capital of America!

I live in one of the most scenic states in America with our world class coastlines, glaciated mountains, river gorges, canyons, pristine forests and waterfalls unparalleled for beauty anywhere. My great-grandparents moved here in the late 1800s. My children are fifth generation Oregonians. But spiritually and morally, this place is a cesspool hell hole! How can humans take such a beautiful place that Elohim has so graciously given to us and then turn into the murder  capital of America? Legalized suicide and now forced baby killing? Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao, Stalin and all of history’s other demoniacs would be proud!

That’s what’ll happen if our leftist bisexual governor signs a bill that has just passed both houses of our state legislature, which she has apparently promised to do, that will force insurance carriers to provide free abortions to their members including illegal aliens as the article below explains and allocates state tax dollars to help pay for  it.

If this happens, all I can say is mega-shame on all of these baby murderers and may the Creator’s judgment come upon them all!

Please join me  in praying that somehow at the eleventh hour, this bill does not get signed.

Oregon’s Radical, Grisly Abortion Law

From  the National Review at http://www.nationalreview.com/article/449427/oregon-new-abortion-law-radical-grisly

by THE EDITORS July 13, 2017 4:00 AM

Once upon a time, Democrats wanted abortion to be “safe, legal, and rare.” Today, that mantra is “unregulated, on demand, and” — in the state of Oregon – “free.” Oregon is preparing to enact a law that would force all Oregon insurers to cover abortions, whatever the reason, at no cost to patients. House Bill 3391-B compels insurers, public or private, to provide a whole swathe of “reproductive services” free of cost and regardless of income, insurance type, citizenship status, or gender identity. Because the bill prohibits insurers from shifting costs to customers in the form of higher deductibles or co-pays, private insurers will be forced to eat the costs — or, more likely, to distribute them among their customers through higher premiums. Medicaid (read: Planned Parenthood) will receive an extra $10 million from the state to cover the procedures. Rammed through both chambers of the state legislature on party lines, the bill now awaits the signature of Democratic governor Kate Brown.

Both California and New York mandate a certain degree of abortion coverage, but Oregon’s is especially aggressive. The legislative language is almost entirely unqualified. It does not exclude grisly late-term abortions (which take place long after the fetus can survive outside the womb), nor does it prohibit sex-selective abortions. If a woman wants to kill her unborn daughter because she wanted a son, her insurer has no choice but to cover that.

Oregon may have one of the most liberal abortion regimes in the country — the state has no informed-consent laws, no waiting periods, and no parental-notification requirements for minors, and conducts virtually no supervision of abortion clinics — but even so, the new bill is radical. Almost every state accepts the consensus represented by the Hyde Amendment, the budget rider attached to federal spending that steers most taxpayer money away from funding abortion procedures: namely, that abortion is a uniquely sensitive issue, and no one should be coerced into supporting it against his or her conscience. Oregon’s bill is a middle finger to that longstanding consensus.

Indeed, its exemption language makes that clear. In order to qualify for an exemption from the mandate, an employer must be a nonprofit whose purpose is “the inculcation of religious values,” and it must primarily employ and serve people who share the employer’s religious tenets. This is, obviously, a standard that almost no religious employer meets. Oregon’s Democrats are, apparently, only interested in one type of evangelism.

Needless to say, this mandate will almost certainly increase the number of abortions in Oregon. Liberal abortion laws correlate with higher abortion rates, and whenever something is free, there is more of it.

But, in the end, this mandate isn’t just about Oregon. In 1994, Oregon voters passed the nation’s first measure approving physician-assisted suicide, which, after surviving several legal challenges, was implemented in 1997. Since then, five more states and the District of Columbia have legalized physician-assisted suicide. Oregon has a way of being at the leading edge of troubling trends involving life-and-death decisions, and this would be one more alarming precedent.

Governor Brown, who is likely to sign the bill, has called opposition to it “an attack on all Oregonians.” In reality, of course, precisely the opposite is true.
