Former SBC President Praises Politician Who Stopped Bill That Would Criminalize Abortion

-

Texas H.B. 896, dubbed the Abolition of Abortion in Texas Act, was by far the most important bill which would have outlawed abortion in the state, criminalizing the act and holding all involved accountable for the crime of murder. A biblical viewpoint — abortion is murder — is the underlying tenet of the Bill, as it reads,

A living human child, from the moment of fertilization on fusion of a human spermatozoon with a human ovum, is entitled to the same rights, powers, and privileges as are secured or granted by the laws of this state to any other human child.

The bill was originally authored by Rep. Tony Tinderholt (R) about two years ago and “pro-life” Republicans have been split over the bill because it would subject mothers who abort their children to criminal liability. The bill was killed by “pro-life” Republican chairman, Jim Leach, a member of Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, TX.

Jack Graham, former president of the Southern Baptist Convention and pastor Prestonwood Baptist Church, one of the largest megachurches in America, praised Leach on Twitter, stating, “I support [Jim Leach] 1000 percent.”

The bill could have been the most effective sanctity of life legislation in the history of the state, protecting unborn children from conception to birth, and holding criminal murderers accountable. Graham, Leach, and those “pro-life” dissenters of the bill claim to believe in the sanctity of human life — some even claim that abortion is murder — yet have no interest in passing legislation consistent with what they say they support.

The bill’s author, Tinderholt, responded to the bill in a video posted on his Facebook page. “There is a lot of misinformation being spread about HB 896, and I would like to clear up some of the confusion,” he said, “my bill simply accomplishes one goal. It brings equal treatment for unborn human beings under the law.”

There is a lot of misinformation being spread about HB 896, and I would like to clear up some of the confusion. My bill simply accomplishes one goal. It brings equal treatment for unborn human beings under the law. Section 1.07, Subsection 26, of the Texas Penal Code already defines an individual as “a human being who is alive, including an unborn child from fertilization until birth.” However, Texas law provides two exceptions to homicide for a mother or a medical professional who performs an abortion. The 5th and 14th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution guarantee due process of law to take an individual’s life, and as previously mentioned, an individual includes unborn babies in Texas statute. Some think we should exempt mothers, but that would inherently treat unborn children differently than other people who are murdered. Other sections of Texas code already define what an abortion is. This definition makes it very clear that an abortion does not include contraceptives, miscarriage, or removal of an ectopic pregnancy. We also have protections for women in the case of a medical emergency or if they are coerced or under duress. None of those instances would result in any penalties whatsoever. Finally, we trust prosecutors and juries to show deep sympathy toward women, many of whom are lied to and manipulated into getting abortions. Men who assist or compel a woman to have an abortion would be subject to severe punishment with Texas’ law of parties, which is currently in statute. Equal protection, equal treatment, and equal love is a must for all men and women, whether in the mother’s womb or as a member of society.

Brian Fisher, president of the Human Coalition — an organization that touts itself as pro-life — also tweeted his opposition to the bill due to the fact that it would hold women accountable for their criminal acts against humanity.

Many supporters of the bill are outraged, expressing their dissatisfaction with Leach and Graham’s approval of Leach’s killing of the bill on Twitter.

I would concur with the sentiments of those who oppose Leach’s decision — Leach and Graham have the blood of untold amounts of innocent unborn children on their hands. God sees this and will hold them accountable.
