Since the election of President Donald Trump, pro-life Americans were given hope again.
He continues to follow through on his promises on the issue.
And now Christians are rejoicing after the Senate made an announcement the Left will hate.
Earlier this year, President Trump made history by being the first President to speak at the March for Life event in Washington, D.C.
During the event, which is the biggest pro-life event of the year, he promised to pass legislation that will protect unborn babies from being slaughtered.
And finally the Senate is following through on that promise.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell just initiated a vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban most late-term abortions past five months of pregnancy, along with the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act, which requires basic medical care for newborn babies born during failed abortions.
These should be common sense issues.
But to the Left, even the slightest restriction on abortion is too far.
So while this bill is unlikely to pass, it will finally put politicians on record where they stand.
McConnell made a motion to begin debate on the bills, which will mean that the first vote on the bills will be on ending debate.
With 60 votes required to end debate, it will force Senators to show where they stand on the issue.
This is important, because even if the bill doesn’t get an actual vote, that procedural vote will allow pro-life organizations to score the vote, so voters can know exactly where their Senators stand.
Senators who represent pro-life voters will have to choose whether to support their interests, or the interests of the Democrat Party, who take in boatloads of money from Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion organizations like EMILY’s List.
These votes don’t go nearly as far as pro-life Americans would want them to.
While late-term abortion is especially grizzly, those who believe that life begins at conception are demanding laws that go much farther.
But this is a positive step that shows that the Trump Administration is serious about this issue, and that Trump isn’t just going to talk about it to appease voters, like so many Republicans do.
And if he takes back the House, he will finally be able to take much bigger steps.
Do you think abortion is murder?
