David Ripley: Planned Parenthood Dances Around the Golden Calf

May 20th, 2018 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Lifes

The folks at Planned Parenthood must be giddy over their incredible good fortune, just when they needed a shot in the arm. President Trump continues to press in on their tax subsidies. His administration just announced that they are going to revise the rules regarding Title X money. Now the rules will match the language of the federal law duly enacted by Congress. No longer will the federal government allow grantees to treat abortion as a legitimate method of “birth control”. Now Planned Parenthood will have to maintain separate facilities – one for their abortion business, another for delivering “family planning” services. But more on this great development later.

Just when things were looking rather bleak for the Abortion Industry – Idaho “conservatives” delivered a huge Christmas gift months early. In last week’s primary, a lion of the pro-Life movement, Rep. Tom Loertscher, was defeated for re-election by 139 votes out of over 6400 cast.

We can see Planned Parenthood and the LGBT activists partying all weekend, dancing around the Golden Calf, giving thanks to the gods they serve.

There is no person in the Legislature who has done more to thwart their evil agenda than Tom Loertscher. He has carried numerous bills into law over his nearly-three decades of service to the People of Idaho. Like Parental Consent for minors to get an abortion. Like conscience protections for medical workers who don’t want to do abortions. Or restricting the use of RU-486.

But names on important bills are only a small measure of Loertscher’s contributions to defending families, babies and religious liberty. As Chairman of the House State Affairs, he has been a critical behind-the-scenes negotiator with agencies and other lobbies to move the pro-Life agenda forward. The hours he has devoted to securing our victories in the Idaho Legislature are beyond count.

He has stood so many times, fearlessly and firmly confronting Planned Parenthood and the other wacko groups which come before his committee. Politely and wisely he has worked through the process to protect our most essential values and freedoms. Loertscher has stood, a giant of a man, in the way of those who would prey upon our children and vulnerable women. He has always found the courage to defend decency.

Nor will we be the only ones who will miss him: Loertscher was a rare legislator with a deep reverence for the Constitution and the institution of the Legislature itself. He knew the rules and traditions which allow the Legislature to function civilly, restraining political egos gone mad. His long public service has given him a deep wisdom, allowing him to see beyond the passions of a particular moment, to keep his eyes on the principles which nurture and renew a Republic.

To our friends at Planned Parenthood: Enjoy your moment. Even as we grieve the loss of Tom Loertscher, we trust that the Lord will raise up new leaders to help defend the Gospel. And to our friends claiming to be the guardians of a new “conservatism”: You have no idea the damage you have done through your foolishness.
