Supreme Court fight is about life and death
Chuck Schumer, Senate minority leader, says, "Our No. 1 goal must be to communicate the stakes of this Supreme Court fight to the American people." He continued, "nothing is off the table."
Nothing? Not even violence?
After the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, members of the Trump administration were being assaulted in publics spaces, in restaurants.
Sen. Schumer is right that the American people must know what's at stake.
Will we have a culture of life and civility, or a culture of death, violence and chaos?
The abortion rate in Schumer's own New York state stands the highest in the nation. Among black women in New York City, according to the Wall Street Journal, "thousands more black babies are aborted each year than born alive."
The last Democratic president, Barack Obama, was the first sitting president to address Planned Parenthood, provider of hundreds of thousands of abortions each year, and concluded by saying: "Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you."
The Affordable Care Act, the signature legislation of President Obama and the Democratic Party, required employers to provide free abortifacients, abortion-inducing drugs, to employees.
Democrats want a Supreme Court justice who sees wanton destruction of human life in the womb as "women's health."
We should appreciate the broader implications of the abortion issue. When we are talking about life and death, we are talking about life's meaning and how that plays out in our culture.
