One of the most oxymoronic statements of 2020 is the statement itself, “Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden.” Joe Biden, himself, is the epitome of pro-abortion and the left has determined that more access to abortion is the path forward for this country.
Besides the fact that Joe Biden is staunchly pro-abortion, Biden and the left’s platform consists of practically everything that God hates; abortion, homosexuality, theft, lawlessness, etc. Yet, despite this, a group of well-known evangelicals has signed a statement endorsing Joe Biden for president.
Among the original signers of the statement include several well-known evangelicals including Christianity Today Board Chair emeritus, John Huffman, Fuller Seminary president emeritus, Richard Mouw, Billy Graham’s Granddaughter, Jerusha Duford, President emeritus Westminster Theological Seminary, Samuel T. Logan, and several others.
The statement boasts financial reasons — not sin — as the most common reason women commit abortions and endorses Joe Biden’s socialism and wealth redistribution as the antidote.
“Knowing that the most common reason women give for abortion is the financial difficulty of another child,” reads the statement, “we appreciate a number of Democratic proposals that would significantly alleviate that financial burden: accessible health services for all citizens, affordable childcare, a minimum wage that lifts workers out of poverty.”
What these signers, who lay claim to the evangelical faith, don’t understand is that abortion is murder. They do not value human life. Life is not expendable simply because a woman doesn’t believe that she can raise a child. To take an unborn human life is not only murder and should be treated as such, punishable under the maximum extent of the law, it is an affront to God and a direct attack on his image. It is not the government’s responsibility to financially support your children, it is your responsibility. It is the government’s responsibility to protect the God-given right to life and freedom to live affirmed in the Constitution of the United States.
To support the right to kill a child is not Christian and none of the signers of this statement should be treated as such.
