A new bioethics advisory board appointed by President Donald Trump released its first report Tuesday, recommending that the government reject funding for 13 of 14 research projects that plan to use aborted baby body parts.
With the 2020 Democratic National Convention going virtual, Monday’s ratings saw a total drop about 28 percent from the first evening of the event four years ago in both television numbers and cable TV coverage.
Pro-life groups roundly condemned 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden’s Tuesday vice presidential pick, Kamala Harris, calling her an “extremist.”
“Together,” Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said, “Biden and Harris constitute the most pro-abortion presidential ticket in American history.”
The SBA List also released a five figure TV ad buy Tuesday that specifically targets Harris for her “extremism on abortion.”
The former vice president announced Tuesday that Harris would be running with him in his bid for the White House. Harris has a long history of advocating for increased abortion access and against pro-life policy: she has voted against abortion bills that protect the unborn after 20 weeks of pregnancy and voted against protecting babies born alive after failed abortions.
As a presidential candidate, Harris promised to codify Roe v. Wade,require judicial nominees to support Roe v. Wade, to repeal the Hyde Amendment, to require private insurers to cover abortion and contraception, to make abortion drugs and birth control available over the counter, to ban abstinence only sex ed, to preserve funding for Planned Parenthood, and much more. She also said she would not consider a running mate who opposed abortion rights. (RELATED: Harris Slams Biden Over His Flip On Taxpayer-Funded Abortion)
We as Christians are duty bound to vote for pro life candidates. To vote otherwise is to disregard the foundational principals of the Word. Jesus is light and life. My biggest concern is that when we do vote Pro Life, do they return the favor by sponsoring or co-sponsoring pro life legislation. Or do they pay us lip service for our vote. Hold their feet to the fire.
