Weekly Wrap-Up

By Mike Long, on Jan 22, 2016

Despite a looming blizzard, an enormous crowd is expected to gather today in Washington for the annual March for Life – and that crowd will include countless young Americans. More and more, the left is finding it difficult to deny the truth about abortion.

What do you think is the most important reason to be pro-life? That’s the first question in our new Weekly Poll – vote today!

Meanwhile the presidential campaign season is at a fever pitch. On the Republican side, it seems as though we have more questions than answers. 

Is the Republican Establishment beginning to warm up to Donald Trump – or are they just blinded by their hatred of Ted Cruz? Is Trump the nominee the Establishment deserves

And is Jeb Bush’s goal at this point to simply destroy Marco Rubio

The Weekly Standard joins “Trump on the Stump” in Iowa and goes “Cruzin through New Hampshire.” 

Here’s the second Weekly Poll question for this week – if you had to choose between Ted Cruz and Donald Trump, who would you pick to be the GOP presidential candidate? I’m really interested to see what people think about this, so I hope you’ll vote today.

On the Democrat side, the liberals are, of course, promising the moon.  And the Clinton Campaign is now on the attack against Bernie Sanders, as many believe that Hillary underestimated Sanders and his sway over left-wing voters – but some think the Sanders threat is overrated.

This could be a huge problem for Hillary: Are many women not all that concerned about electing a woman President? 

Here’s the final Weekly Poll question: Do you believe that Bernie Sanders has any chance of defeating Hillary? Vote now!

And have a great weekend!

I also do not like the idea of abortion and am indeed very thankful that I was never in the position where I had to consider one.
However, the evangelical Christians are opposed to many forms of contraception (usually those that are most effective, like IUD's), against single parenthood, opposed to premarital sex and any sort of sex education, in favor of gun ownership. Sweden has a very low abortion rate because contraceptives are readily available, also without parental permission, single motherhood is accepted, sex education is taught in schools. Let's face it: sex happens, and teaching "just say no" at school is not going to prevent it.
If evangelical Christians are really opposed to abortion, they would do more to make contraceptives available and give women a real choice.
Finally, even though I do not like the idea of abortion, it is a choice that only a woman can make with her doctor. No one should interfere with the decision regardless of their motives. I had to do my essay on the same and I can tell that abortion has been with us since well before biblical times, with all of the dire consequences for women, and it will be here as long as people can become pregnant unexpectedly or carry babies that are severely handicapped or unable to survive outside the womb.
