You shouldn’t sign your name to an agreement that evil men may kill one of your children, not even to save the others

I just sent the following to my representative:

Subject: Don’t abandon the rape and incest babies
Dear Representative Carson,

Please do not support the H.R. 36: Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act as it is – it withholds protection for babies conceived through no fault of their own through rape and incest. This is wrong. Please work for protection of all unborn babies. They are made in the image of God and God has commanded us, “You shall not murder.”

Thank you,
Daniel Meyer
Indianapolis

Mr. Carson is opposed to the protection of the unborn at all—in fact, he is given over to their slaughter. But he’s my representative, and this bill needs to not go through as it stands, so I’m asking him to work to protect all unborn babies.

Why do I say the bill needs to not go through as it stands?

Well the question is, how can it ever be right to cast our vote for “I agree that if a child is conceived in rape or incest, you may kill him”? “I agree that you may kill my youngest child, but you must leave the others alone.” It would be immoral—horrendous!—to sign your name to such an agreement. But this is exactly what the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act does – it positively agrees that the murder of certain children is acceptable. This is how all the abortion regulation laws are—they make explicitly clear that they agree that certain murders are acceptable. This is done in the hope that wicked judges won’t strike them down, but it is wrong. (And wicked judges strike them down anyway.)

We need to oppose abortion restrictions that explicitly approve of wickedness (which is almost all of them) and stop compromising our principles—that is, stop agreeing to throw the weakest of the weak under the bus.
