Senator Graham, All Unborn Children Have Value

Speaking on the US Senate Floor for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, US Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said, “All I’m asking is just don’t crush that baby’s skull unless there’s a very good reason.”

While I agree with parts of Graham’s bill, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban abortion after 20 weeks since babies can feel pain at this stage, I do not agree with the fact that it has exceptions for abortions, and I can not agree with his statement.  According to Senator Graham, good reasons for an abortion exception include: endangerment of the mother’s life, and if the pregnancy is the result of abuse.  In my opinion, however, there is absolutely no good reason to crush an infant’s skull.

Let me put it this way.  In the first reason, if you risk the mother, there is only a chance that death could occur.  But if you perform an abortion, there is absolutely no way around it; that baby is going to die.  

In the second reason, exception for sexual abuse, is it right do kill a child just because it’s life started violently?  Are not all men created equal, and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?  Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.”  None of these exceptions are good reasons at all.

Retired Southern Baptist pastor and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee said that “Every human life has value because it is the creation of the hands of a holy God.”

I believe that we need to end abortion in it’s entirety and do it soon.  We are the voice for the voiceless and must stand up for every human life, not just one here and one there.  America has to get off the tracks because as the song goes, “There’s a long black train comin’ down the line.”  Hell exists, and we can’t pretend it doesn’t.
