If I had to guess, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam has never been stabbed in the head by a pair of surgical scissors, you know, the kind he’d condone using on babies just outside of the womb. How do I know? Well, it’s as plain as the nose on my face…and if you knew my ancestry you’d know that’s pretty obvious. That begs the question though, doesn’t it. If something that absurd is so obvious to me, why doesn’t he see that his defense of 3rdtrimester abortion is murder…the right to reproductive hell.
To answer that, we have to be clear about what he advocates. Virginia Governor Ralph Northam would legalize doctors and patients to kill babies up to and JUST AFTER birth. That means that if the mother says that the existence of her child may cause her physical or mental harm, and a doctor agrees with her, they can take a pair of surgical scissors and insert them into the brain of the child, while they talk about whether it was a good decision. For them it’s about “reproductive health”, but for the baby it’s a reproductive hell.
Implied when he lied
But don’t worry, the Gov of the Old Dominion assures us, if the baby is still living, we’ll “keep it comfortable”.
Did you hear that?
That was a tacit admission about what that baby is. That admission can be unvielded by asking this…why would you “keep it comfortable”? We don’t keep warts comfortable. It’s not necessary to keep a tumor comfortable. Nor does it seem appropriate to keep a “mass of tissue” comfortable.
Do you know why the Gov of the Commonwealth wants to assure us that they’ll “keep it comfortable”?
Because it’s a human being!
He knows it! He knows that we know it! And his admission is as much a confession as it is ludicrous.
Why the charade?
If Gov Northam knows he’s advocating for the murder of babies, both born and unborn, why is he defending it? In fact, since New York has already passed such a law, and Rhode Island is working on one, why is it that infanticide has become vogue?
Well, there’s the million dollar question.
Here’s why I believe the Democratic Socialists (DS) are knowingly advocating for infanticide.
The DS are trying to change the moral landscape of America. Actually, they already have with same-sex marriage and the opinion of many Americans. Ten years ago, a great majority of Americans were opposed to same-sex marriage. Today, a slight majority isn’t in favor of it.
How do they succeed in that kind of mass social engineering? That’s easy. They use the courts to change the law.
Moving the Overton Window
Americans have this strange association with the law and morality. It’s assumed that if it’s legal, it’s okay. In other words, if the courts say it’s moral, then it is. This can be achieved through the normal process of law making as well. Whether the courts make the law or the Congress or Legislature does it, people will eventually come around.
The DS are betting on futures. They’re betting that in the future, you’ll buy the lie that abortion ain’t so good, but it’s a heck of a lot better than infanticide. It’s moving the goalposts! They’re adjusting the Overton Window!
With the immanent replacement of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and a practically permanent change in the SCOTUS, the Dems understand that Roe v Wade is in jeopardy. They have also began to master State nullification with laws legalizing recreational marijuana, sanctuary cities and States, and gun control. To be honest, it’s a genius move.
State nullification has been debated since the founding, and its intellectual and legal status is uncertain for many. But, it’s pragmatic application is very certain. The Federal Republic is alive and well and although scholars may disagree about the finer points of Jeffersonian or Calhoun style nullification, the States practice it successfully.
Here’s the rub. The Feds can outlaw anything they desire, but if a State doesn’t want to enforce it, it doesn’t have to use one dime or one minute of manpower to do so. If they select a Federal law wisely, and declare it unconstitutional, they can nullify that law in their State for all intents and purposes. The fact is, the Federal government doesn’t have the resources or frankly, the will to do anything about it.
The DS are predicting the end of Roe v Wade and effectively pre-nullifying any residual Federal laws concerning abortion.
What can you do?
Understand the tactic
First, you must understand that what New York did, what Virginia is trying to do is perfectly legal. It’s a proper use of State government as the fourth leg of our Federal check and balance. You need to try to understand the true power of the States and urge your State Reps and Governor to use State nullification to defend life! State nullification is a two-edged sword and it’s been good for the goose…now it’s the gander’s turn.
Learn to argue
Second, learn how to argue against abortion. Greg Koukl’s Stand to Reason website gives a wonderful argument that uses an acronym to help you memorize its points. It’s called the SLED test and it’s pretty easy to learn. It reduces each argument in favor of abortion into four categories that implicitly point out the absurdity of their argument. It’s comprehensive, so you won’t get caught off guard and it’s winsome, so you’ll be convincing.
The reasons that are always given for abortion are S-size, L-level of development, E-environment, and D-degree of dependency. I’ve memorized this and it never fails to point out the absurdity of abortion.
Always remember, what you’re insisting on is not mere life. Everyone agrees it’s a living thing. You need to argue that the living thing is a human person. Warts are living things and it’s alright to kill them. Human persons are another matter altogether.
Do something other than complain
Finally, stop watching Fox, scrolling through your FB news feed, and get off your laurels…actually do something. Whether you live in a State that is considering infanticide or not, write your Reps, protest an abortion clinic, give a news interview, write a letter to the editor, organize a local march for life, and talk to your family and friends about it. Post anti-abortion articles on social media. Be ready to argue using your human person, SLED test.

It’s time to take a stand
Here’s the thing. We have just entered a new age of depravity. Yes, we’ve always been murderous in our hearts, but this is different. Jesus said that if you hate another person, you have committed murder in your heart (1 John 3:15). He didn’t mean that hate and murder were equally culpable though. That may be news to Thabiti Anybiwile who advocated voting for DS two years ago…
But strong insistence that we only consider one issue and refuse voting for anyone who isn’t anti-abortion is, in fact, an attempt at binding the conscience in a political way in political elections.” Thabiti Anyabwile
Don’t be blinded by rhetoric like his. If your pastor isn’t willing to take a position on abortion, be very suspicious of him. Call him to clarity on Scritpure and demand his acquiesce. If your churchmen are distracted with money making and sports, call them to their manhood and demand they stand for the helpless. Don’t be satisfied with mealymouthed expressions and death by qualifications. They’ll be time for that when the war against babies is over.
Now is the time to stand and be counted! It’s time for brave men and women to lead! In the name of Christ, fight to save the babies!
