In his novel “Roots,” Alex Haley wrote: “Omoro told Kunta that three groups of people lived in every village. First were those you could see — walking around, eating, sleeping, and working. Second were the ancestors, whom Grandma Yaisa had now joined. And the third people — who are they? Asked Kunta. ‘The third people,’ said Omoro, ‘are those waiting to be born.’”

Indeed, those precious souls who are waiting to be born are people.

God respects the unborn as persons just as He did Jeremiah to whom He said: “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.” (Jer. 1:5)

On Jan. 22, New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo wasted no time signing a radical pro-abortion bill into law just hours after the state Senate and Assembly passed it.

The Reproductive Health Act allows late-term abortions, even up to nine months, and non-doctors to perform them.

The pro-abortion governor said, “With the signing of this bill, we are sending a clear message that whatever happens in Washington, women in New York will always have the fundamental right to control their own body.”

The unborn is also a person who is alive. Neither the governor nor the New York Senate has the right to redefine what God has created and made. The move by them is just an attempt to justify their evil, murderous intent.

Comment regarding pro abortion stance by NY governor Can't be justified? How do Christian's justify supporting a political party championing abortion?

David Rau

The Electoral College was created to give power to the slave states its 200 years out of date. A vote cast in LA or NY is no greater or less than one cast in Alabama. Anyone now can beat Trump easily, he is the worst president in history, the most corrupt, with the lowest iq and has no morals. How anyone can say that Trump has made america great is totally lost. Even Trump now admits his virus will kill maybe 200,000 and its projected that 42 million people are losing their jobs. We were great when Obama was the President but that;s all over now. The Trump virus and the Trump Depression is here. You call that winning?

Unbelievable. That is the dumbest paragraph in the history of your dumb paragraphs. Wow....

David Rau

The facts are that Hillary Clinton beat the orange moron by 3 million votes. Although the Electoral College is now the law of the land look at what its given us the two worst Presidents in history, W and now Trump. just look at their records W gave us 911, the illegal Iraq and Afgan wars and his economic depression in 2009. And now Trump has given us the Trump virus and his own economic depression. We should and will get rid of the Electoral College and the President should be elected by a vote of the people like it should have been all along..

Darryl Swindle

The electoral college prevents New York and Los Angeles from deciding who is president every election cycle. The dim-wit-crats haven't got a candidate that can go toe to toe with Trump. You better get use to Trump Making America Great again and again.

David Rau

The truth is that polls before the election in 2016 had the race tied no landslide was predicted and still Hillary beat the orange moron by 3 million votes.

Darryl Swindle

If you believe that the hildabeast won, the Constitution and the electoral college says your wrong.

David Rau

It sure does not appear that people are coming out for Trump when the latest polls say Biden leads Trump by 10% at that was a fox news poll. Trump could not even get elected dog catcher now. His virus and his depression has done him in.

Darryl Swindle

Polls can be manipulated for any outcome you desire. Proof is in the last presidential election where the hildabeast was predicted to win in a landslide.

David Rau

Does Mr. Swindle really think anyone is going to vote for a conservative after the way Trump messed up with the Trump virus and the Trump depression? And Trump was all for abortion before he ran for President. Trump had 3 months warning about the virus and did nothing but play golf..Latest estimates say 200,000 may die in the U. S. and 42, million lose their jobs all because he would not act when warned to back in Dec. I think we may not have another republican as President again for maybe 20 years after bozo Trump.

Darryl Swindle

Trump will win the 2020 election. Educated individuals will vote for him regardless of their political affiliation. More democrats are coming out for Trump. We are seeing more democrat politicians changing their party affiliation to republican because of people like Pelosi and David Rue. Your hate for Trump will be futile to your agenda.

David Rau

Just goes to show how people like Pasley has no respect for the constitution but of course he is a Trump supporter he is just taking a page out of the Trump play book. If it was left up to people like Pasley and Trump we would be living in a theocracy because that is just what they want. And no where in the 2nd amendment does it say a mentally ill person has a right to own a gun but that was just what bozo Trump made legal back in 2017 and we have had hundreds of mass killings by crazy people with guns ever since.

David Rau

In 1973 The Supreme Court cited the Due Process of the `14th amendment to the U.S. constitution it provides a fundamental right to privacy that protects a pregnant woman's liberty to choose whether or not to have an abortion. That is no lie Mr Hurst but i'm sure you don't believe in following the constitution just like your corrupt President does not.

David Rau

Now is not the time to debate abortion the Trump virus and the Trump depression is here. Abortion is not allowed all nine months except if the life of the mother is at stake. and its an out right lie that non doctors can perform abortions. a woman has the right to an abortion that is guaranteed by the Constitution. A woman has the right on how to manage her own body. Would anyone think that Trump should have the right to tell a woman how to manage her body? Abortion is legal and will stay that way Trump will leave office in January. Thank goodness.

joe hurst

Please share the passage in the constitution that guarantees anyone the right to murder an unborn child. I have read it beginning to end and oddly enough cannot find it. More lies.

Jacob Pasley

You're not going to a coherent response from dumb dave. He is literally saying a baby is part of a woman's anatomy, yet women still only have 10 fingers and 10 toes when pregnant. His only justification is that activist judges allowed abortion in the 1970's, which really is not a justification for killing babies.

Oh the indignation he has when a law is mischaracterized, however, he does the exact same thing when it comes to 2nd Amendment laws. Hyperbole and outright lies is all dumb dave has to support his nonsensical beliefs.

Darryl Swindle

Democrats like David Rue expose their ignorance every time I read a reply by them to a comment. If slavery was still legal, I am sure they would still support the democrat parties approval of it. Abortion takes the life of a innocent human being. The womb is just a location of incubation. The Declaration of Independence is the foundation of our Constitution an it state that life is an enalienable right given by God. The Supreme Courts leftist judges found it ok to take a life of the innocence without consideration of the victim. Now the left is in fear that if the courts takes on abortion again, it will surely be overturned. Now you are seeing more Democrats realizing the corruption of the party and leaving the party and supporting the conservative movement.
