Brownback clarifies what the abortion debate is all about:
“Rape is terrible. Rape is awful,” but rape victims’ rights come secondary to those of an unborn child, GOP presidential hopeful Sen. Sam Brownback said on Saturday.
Campaigning before the National Catholic Men’s Conference, Brownback questioned whether rape victims should get abortions.
“Is (rape) made any better by killing an innocent child? Does it solve the problem for the woman that’s been raped?” the Kansas Republican asked at the St. Joseph’s Covenant Keepers gathering.
“We need to protect innocent life. Period,” Brownback said, bringing the crowd of about 500 to its feet.
Brownback also talked about keeping marriage between a man and a woman, saying nations that have allowed same-sex marriages were engaging in bad social experiments, with bad results.
He also encouraged married couples to stay together, saying unspecified studies have shown that if couples weather hard times for five years, their marriages tend to last. After five years, “people are happier than those who have had a divorce,” Brownback said.
There’s a good reason why this man will be our next President. He’s the only candidate who’s not afraid to utter the unpleasant truths that not everyone wants to hear. Abortion is murder. When a woman murders a baby, she should face the same punishments that society metes out to all other baby-murderers. Rape victims should get much lighter sentences, but the bottom line is that a fetus is a living baby. To permit abortion in the case of rape makes no more sense than to permit abortion in every other circumstance. It’s really as simple as that. Americans may not like that, but they sure do love babies.
Life is a beautiful gift, no matter how horrible the circumstances in which that life began. 30 million lives have been lost to the Roe v. Wade decision. This is the greatest bloodbath in American history, and the moonbats have been behind it every step of the way. Illegalization of infanticide, followed by death sentences for abortion doctors and serial abortion-obtainers, will go a long way toward making this a decent, God-fearing, Christian nation again.
God bless America.
