Letter to the editor: Democrats & abortion
Since the Roe v. Wade decision, more than 60 million of God’s precious babies have been killed. The brutality of abortion defies all of man’s natural instincts. I wonder, have we killed the one sent by God to find the cure for cancer or Alzheimer’s?
In 2014, 70 percent of Americans identified themselves as Christian. Even if one does not practice his faith, he surely has an awareness of God’s laws.
Given that most Democrats favor less strict abortion laws, how does a Democrat ever get elected to public office? A vote for a Democrat is a vote against God’s law. In Jeremiah 1:5 God says, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.”
New York’s Reproductive Health Act states that abortion “is a fundamental component of a woman’s health, privacy and equality.” When Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed this bill, members of the state Senate rose and applauded.
Can a nation that allows babies to be killed in their mothers’ wombs long survive? I don’t think so. Isaiah 5:20 warns, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil.” Thus, all who identify as practicing Christians have an obligation to reject any who reject God’s law. All life is sacred.
