Georgia gubernatorial candidate and loser Stacy Abrams just won't go away. Not only is she considering a 2020 presidential bid, but now she is on record claiming that a bill before the Georgia legislature that would regulate, not eliminate, abortions when a baby's heartbeat begins is "evil."
For the record, this is not a "pro-life" bill. It is a pro-abortion bill that regulates abortion under certain circumstances and the pro-life community has got to come to grips with that. It is not calling for the abolition of murder of the unborn, just another means to regulate that murder.
However, Abrams, who lost to Republican Governor Brian Kemp in 2018, blasted the bill because she doesn't want abortion regulated at all. She wants unfettered murder of Georgians.
"The current governor does not seem to have any interest in creating an atmosphere that acknowledges that half of the state has a different set of values," she said. "We all want to be successful. I think any leader has to understand, has to bring folks together. And unfortunately, under his tenure, I have not seen an attempt to do so."
Hardly half the state, since Ms. Abrams lost by more than half.
“HB 481 is evil. And it exists because it was a campaign promise. It exists because it was a political stunt,” Abrams said, according to the Times Free Press.
“It is dangerous,” she told reporters after a rally. “I think it is scientifically insupportable. I know it will cause harm to women, especially to those women who face the highest rate of maternal mortality already. We know that we will lose doctors. We will lose jobs. And I believe it is purely a craven exercise designed to fulfill a political promise.”
This woman has so deceived herself she fails to understand that it is her position that is scientifically insupportable. She has no way of determining when life begins, but she wants you to think she is smarter than the average bear.
As Life News reported in 2016, "it is generally medically accepted that an unborn baby’s heart is beating by six weeks of pregnancy, though research by the University of Oxford suggests the heartbeat may begin as early as 16 days after conception."
But conception is really the only option we have when it comes to determining when life actually begins. Scripture is clear on the subject of when life begins.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” -Jeremiah 1:5
"For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb...Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them." -Psalm 139:13, 16
God also commands that we are not to murder, and abortion is, without a doubt, the pre-meditated, paid and planned murder of another human being no matter what Stacy Abrams or any other deceived, wicked person says.
While she claims the bill is nothing more than a political stunt, it seems that even the local media picked up on the fact that she opened her large mouth to attack the bill for political power for herself.
“… Abrams has maintained that her goal since she was a child was to occupy the governor’s mansion that Kemp now calls home," the report read. "She said legislation like the abortion bill could lead her to challenge Kemp in 2022.”
Imagine that! One the one side, it's political power to not advocate for the complete abolition of the murder of the unborn and on the other side, it's a push for political power to murder American children at any age in the womb... and outside it.
The real stand for the rights of the unborn only come from those who say to uphold the right to life and the command of the Creator, "Thou shalt not murder."
Life News reports:
Georgia House Bill 481, the Living Infants Fairness and Equality (L.I.F.E.) Act, would ban abortions on an unborn baby after their heartbeat is detectable, around six weeks. It would allow exceptions for rape, incest and threats to the mother’s life. In addition, the bill would allow parents to claim unborn babies as dependents on their taxes and include the unborn baby in census data. It also would allow mothers to collect child support for pregnancy and delivery costs from the father prior to the baby’s birth.
It passed a final vote Friday in the House, and now is headed to the governor’s desk for his signature.
Kemp said he would sign it into law, but he is facing a massive protest from Hollywood elites who are threatening to boycott the state and take their millions in movie and television productions with them.
Kemp's press secretary said in a statement:
"Governor Kemp is focused on doing the job a record number of Georgians elected him to do: putting hardworking Georgians ahead of politics. That includes raising teacher pay by a historic $3,000, expanding access to quality health care, prioritizing public safety by going after street gangs, spurring job creation and investment, fully funding public education, and valuing the life of every single Georgian."
Stacy Abrams, like the rest of Georgia, America and the world, who continue to advocate for the murder of other human beings should not only shut their mouths, they should repent before a just and holy God whose eyes are not blind to their swiftness to shed innocent blood. He sees and will repay because He is not like them.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
