Abortion Is Taking a Baby’s Life—At Any Stage

Politicians and Hollywood stars have been quick to decry recently passed heartbeat laws as a “brutal form of oppression” and an “outrage … heinous … and a travesty.”

They are very vocal that a pre-born baby who has a heartbeat should not have the right to live, but once the discussion turns to partial-birth or full-term abortion, the conversation gets a little quieter.

Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg, according to The Daily Caller, told Fox News host Chris Wallace that, no, there should not be “any limit on a woman’s right to have an abortion.” Buttigieg added, “I think the dialogue has gotten so caught up on where you draw the line, that we’ve gotten away from the fundamental question of who gets to draw the line, and I trust women to draw the line when it’s their life.”

But there is much more to trusting women to draw the line.

Pro-abortion activists must come to grips with the fact that they advocate for killing a child of God—and that fact remains unchanged regardless of whether the baby was just conceived, has a heartbeat or is days away from being born. The argument about rights being taken away is a manmade distortion. God, or the Constitution for that matter, never gave any woman, politician or Hollywood elite the “right” to take away a baby’s life—created by God in His image—in order to be in control of their bodies.

Actually, just the opposite is true. We are endowed the right to life. God gives us the right to be born and to live. In mandating that none of us have the right to murder another person, that doesn’t mean we have lost any rights. Recently passed heartbeat laws, and God-willing, the others that will follow, do not take away the rights of women. They never had the right to murder another human being in the first place.
