David Ripley: Promising Ruling from Supreme Court

May 30th, 2019 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

The U.S. Supreme Court issued an important pro-Life ruling on Tuesday, overturning a bad precedent from the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. The Supreme Court ruled that states do have the authority to require the decent treatment of human remains from an abortion. The statute at issue comes from Indiana. That state responded to the scandal of Planned Parenthood’s trafficking in aborted baby parts by insisting that abortionists operating in the state provide proper burial of the preborn children they destroy.

There are several important details in this development. One is the fact that this decision was agreed to by 7 of the sitting justices – including pro-abort liberals Kagan and Breyer.

The other noteworthy development was contained in the original AP report of the decision. The mainstream media actually reported that the Supreme Court ruling had the effect of requiring the burial of aborted babies “as if they were human”. The story was written in such a way as to make it obvious that the reporter was unconscious of his/her gross bias. But the phrasing is nevertheless instructive.

Obviously, there is no other possible description of the life growing within that womb than ‘human’.

The ideology of being pro-abortion requires a suspension of science and reason. The preborn “fetus” cannot possibly be “human” – because that would lead to certain uncomfortable moral problems. And even in her dissent, the Supreme Court’s leading abortion cheerleader, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, asserted that a woman who seeks an abortion is “not a mother”. That woman may not be a proper mother, she may not want to be a mother – but the biological and spiritual reality is that she is – and will forever be – a mother by the act of conception.

We must continue to challenge the illogic and irrationality of our opponents, even as we celebrate the Supreme Court’s ruling upholding Indiana’s right to defend decency. The ruling may indicate the Court will be generous in affording state’s greater latitude in protecting preborn children from the horrors of abortion going forward. Let us pray so. And may the Lord grant us the mercy of seeing the monstrous ruling of Roe v. Wade soon discarded by the high court.

David Ripley: Democrats’ Priorities are Clear – and We’re not Among Them

May 3rd, 2019 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

Since taking control of the House this year, Congressional Democrats have shown they have two priorities: Sabotaging President Trump and defending their friends at Planned Parenthood.

Nancy Pelosi’s very first action as Speaker was to marshal a vote seeking to restore Planned Parenthood’s international funding from American taxpayers. Fortunately, that effort was thwarted by Senate Republicans and President Trump.

Now, Democrats are busy crafting a bloated budget that would require the Trump Administration to restore Title X funding of Planned Parenthood. Mr. Trump has led a drive to enforce federal law, requiring a separation between abortion facilities and agencies receiving “family planning” services. The new HHS rules will force Planned Parenthood to choose between its abortion business and its dependence upon American taxpayers.

Pelosi’s budget would also increase the amount of subsidies for “family planning” by some $114 million – to something over $400 million each year.

Those Democrats crying about the “threat to women’s health” are executing a blatant propaganda campaign which is lacking in facts or truth. The simple fact is that President Trump did not end Title X funding – or even reduce the amount of money the federal government is pouring into “family planning”. He has simply re-directed that money away from the Abortion Industry. In fact, some of the money has already been awarded to pro-Life pregnancy care centers – an astonishing development.

We can only pray that the American people will restore a conservative majority to the U.S. House next year after we have all paid the price for allowing Pelosi to regain the Speaker’s gavel; two years’ worth of radical dysfunction should be enough to convince voters that we are simply not being served by the Democrat majority.
