Donald Trump is NOT pro-life

Recently Trump made it clear—he is the best on women’s health issues—the best.

“I’m going to be so good to women, I’m going to be the best on women’s health issues.” (Trump in Dallas this week)

In case you didn’t know “Women’s health issues” is code for safe and legal abortion. And without code language, Trump said he was pro-abortion when it comes to rape or incest. That sounds reasonable to many Americans, but let’s just think for a minute.

The only reason I am against abortion—and this is the only reason—is because I believe it is murder. If someone convinced me that abortion was the equivalent of having your tonsils removed, I would be on board. But it is not. A fetus is not an organ of the female anatomy. It is a new, growing human being. You don’t catch it like a cold, or pick it up like a virus it is a result of sexual intercourse. It is not like a tumorous growth, but a person with a personality.

It is human in every way.

Therefore, killing the baby, no matter how the person got pregnant is stopping a beating heart—it is the taking of a life. I would be much more in favor of the death penalty for the rapist, than for the innocent child. For the woman who has been assaulted, it is a horrendous ordeal. And I can’t imagine then, after the fact, finding out you are pregnant. But the killing of the baby is not the answer. This is the conservative position. If you are pro-life, then you are pro-life. And Trump is not.

Even Glamour Magazine agrees, hardly a bastion for conservative thinking, saying that Trump is the best Republican candidate when it comes to Women’s Health and, yes, they say, he is the best on Planned Parenthood—the organization that rips babies apart and sells their organs.

Trump was very pro-choice, “in every respect” most of his life, as he told Tim Russert in 1999. It is hard to be believe that he has had any deep conversion, other than for the sake of getting elected. This is a man with very little principle. Or, I should say, his guiding principle on virtually every issue of morality is, “How does this work in my benefit?”

I am stunned as I see believers taken in by his pandering—from taking out a Bible he has never read and showing us that his mother wrote his name in it, to saying that he is a Christian and he doesn’t know why people are stunned to hear this. (Note to DT: It may be your multiple affairs, never apologizing, bragging about your sexual prowess and exploits, extremely vicious attacks on women—those may be just a few of the reasons that people don’t think you are a Christian.)

It should concern every believer that the only Bible verse that he can quote is “an eye for an eye”—amazingly one of the only versus in the Bible that Yeshua used to call us to rise up to a higher level!

You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. (Matt. 5:38)

And he clearly doesn’t understand the context of the Old Testament verse.*
Again, just so there is no misunderstanding. When Trump was asked about a favorite Bible verse he picked a verse that speaks of vengeance, one of his guiding principles, and this verse was actually updated by the Messiah, who called us to a higher level.

Watch!

And where does Trump stand on grown men walking into women’s bathroom—grown men, using the same restroom as 12-year-old girls?

“There have been very few complaints the way it is. People go. They use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate…There has been so little trouble. And the problem with what happened in North Carolina is the strife and the economic—I mean, the economic punishment that they’re taking.”

This is the opposite position of Ted Cruz who said, “We shouldn’t be facilitating putting little girls alone in a bathroom with grown men. That’s just a bad, bad, bad idea.” Donald disagrees. He is more concerned with the economics than the morality. Honestly, how can he claim to be the best on women’s issues, and not protect little girls from predators?

No my friends, Donald Trump is not a conservative—he is whatever he needs to be to get elected, and as he closes in on the nomination, you can see him shifting left. Just as he cheated on his wives, he will cheat on you, because Donald looks out for Donald—that I can tell you!


 

*Donald Trump has made it no secret that he believes strongly in getting revenge. Just google to see his many comments about not forgiving and seeking vengeance at the highest, meanest level. However, this verse was about a legal system that God was setting up for the people of Israel. It was a system restitution, not vengeance.
