“When you spread out your hands, I will hide my eyes from you; even though you make many prayers; I will not listen; your hands are full of blood. Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your deeds from before my eyes; cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.” -Isaiah 1:15-17
Think about this verse as it relates to America. According to this verse, is God going to bless us? Is He going to spark the hearts of His people here aflame and bring revival to our country? Of course not. Further, Leviticus 20:1-5 teaches that entire nations are guilty when they turn a blind eye to child sacrifice. It’s very hard to make a case that that isn’t exactly what the vast majority of the American church has done for 46 years. Hopefully, that will change with the passing of infanticide legalization in New York.

The focal point of the new law is that it codifies Roe v Wade into state law. Abortion is legal for any reason in New York before “viability.” It is also legal after viability if the baby has a disability or if the purpose of the abortion is to preserve the mental or physical “health” of the mother. “Health,” in this case, could mean almost anything. The mother could say she’s stressed out at the thought of being a parent and that could qualify for the mental health exception. The law also legalizes abortions performed by non-doctors such as nurses and nurse practitioners and repeals section 4164 of New York’s Public Health Law which mandated medical assistance for babies born alive after botched abortion.
Since the passing of the New York bill, the same legislation has been introduced in Vermont and Virginia. Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo also asked the Rhode Island legislator to send her the same bill. This is all on top of the six other states (Alaska, Colorado, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, and Oregon) that already have no limit on abortion.
Most notably, Virginia delegate Kathy Tran, while being questioned by delegate Todd Gilbert on Tuesday, admitted that the bill, of which she was a primary sponsor, would allow doctors to murder a baby at 40 weeks as the mother is going into labor.
A quick note before I say what I’m about to say. Abortionists don’t deny that they’re murderers. John Szenes referred to himself as an “executioner.” Lisa Harris admits that abortion is “violence and killing.” Warren Hern said, “In a D&E abortion, sensations of dismemberment flow through the forceps like an electric current.” Curtis Boyd said, “Yes, I’m killing. I know that.”
All that to say, there’s no reason for us to choose soft language when describing these people. They concede that what we say about them is true. I appreciate the prodding from Todd Gilbert that forced Kathy Tran into a corner where she admitted that she wants to legalize the murder of babies even as the mother is dilating, but he should have called her a murderous barbarian right there in the hearing. That is what she is. Again, there’s no reason for us to be using soft language. People who support abortion support barbarism and murder. Relentlessly speak of abortion in those terms.
This evil must be completely abolished.

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam defended Delegate Tran on Wednesday while on WTOP radio. Northam makes clear that the bill would allow physicians and families to murder babies by neglect even after the baby is born. “If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen,” he said. “The infant would be delivered, the infant would be kept comfortable, the infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired; and then a discussion would ensue between the physician and the mother.”

On with D.C.-based WTOP to discuss Virginia’s controversial late-term abortion bill (which was defeated today), Governor Ralph Northam endorsed the practice of depriving newborns of medical care. This is murder.

To be clear, abortion is murder even in the earliest stages. But the additional shamefulness of being willing to murder babies as old as the babies these barbarians are talking about murdering is difficult to fathom.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said of the bill, “The Reproductive Health Act is a historic victory for New Yorkers and our progressive values.” The fact that child sacrifice is Neolithic Era barbarity appears to be lost to Governor Cuomo.
The fortunate part of all this is that abortion supporting politicians have been smoked out of their holes. They aren’t hiding their true beliefs anymore. They’re openly endorsing infanticide, which has all along been the logical conclusion of the “pro-choice” position. They’re out in the open and will have to defend that position; something which they are unable, or perhaps unwilling, to do. Henry Rodgers, a reporter for the Daily Caller, tried to get statements from congressional democrats on what was happening in New York and Virginia. Without exception, they refused to address it, all claiming they didn’t know what Rodgers was talking about.
I just spoke with over 10 Democratic Senators in the past 2 hours. Not one of them would acknowledge @GovernorVA‘s comments on late-term abortion. Everyone of them denied ever hearing them.

It’s no wonder “pro-choice” politicians nationwide are racing to the nearest sandbank and burying their head in it. Their position is indefensible. The outrage with these state legislators and governors has been enormous. Delegate Tran deleted her social media accounts for more than 24 hours after the video came out.
Again, murder is murder. The age of the victim, whether just conceived, six months from conception, an infant, a young adult, middle-aged, or elderly, is irrelevant. But pray the anger at these bills would transfer into action; into an awakening for the church. It’s time to, through repentance, wash our hands of the blood and, through direct action and protest, end the killing of innocent preborn children.
