In recent years, Democrats have shifted radically to the Left.
They aren’t even comparable to what they were ten or twenty years ago.
And now no Christian will ever vote Democrat again after their latest announcement on abortion.
At one time, radical extremists like Bernie Sanders were on the outskirts of the Democrat Party.
In fact, he has served as an Independent for decades, despite generally caucusing with the Democrat Party.
But following his 2016 Presidential campaign, his radical ideas are moving from the outskirts of the Party into the mainstream.
Politicians like Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar are taking leading roles in the Party, and Sanders is proving that a socialist like him can win the Democrat Party nomination for President.
And in Sanders’ current race for President, even if he doesn’t get the nomination, his policies will push the Party much further Left for many years to come.
That’s why his new plan on abortion, titled the “Reproductive Health Care and Justice for All” plan should be terrifying to any Christian.
He outlines exactly where Democrats stand on the issue in this comprehensive plan that goes into major detail.
His plan repeals the Hyde Amendment, which currently prevents taxpayer funding from paying for abortion.
That is an issue that has been contentious in the Democrat Party until recently.
For decades, Joe Biden has favored the Hyde Amendment, citing his Catholic faith.
But in his current run for President, he announced he is now in support of repealing the pro-life Amendment.
In Sanders’ plan, he also calls for “free” over-the-county contraceptives for all Americans, along with “significant” increases in “funding for Planned Parenthood, Title X, and other initiatives,” specifically for the cause of abortion.
The Sanders plan will also restore foreign aid to abortion providers as well as the United Nations Population Fund.
He also calls for a ban on abstinence-only sex education, and an end to federally-funding of crisis pregnancy centers that focus on alternatives to abortion.
His plan also promises only to appoint judges who are 100% pro-abortion, with perfect ratings from groups like Planned Parenthood and NARAL.
In his plan, Sanders states that he will work “with reproductive justice and advocacy groups to fill vacancies with highly qualified, principled judges who will protect reproductive rights at every level.”
He also touts his long record of pro-abortion views.
“In 1972, before the Roe v. Wade ruling, Bernie criticized male politicians who ‘think that they have the right to tell a woman what she can or cannot do with her body,’” the announcement declares. “Bernie has never wavered on the issue of reproductive freedom, and, as president, he will protect and expand reproductive rights.”
This sort of document is clearly the path forward for the Democrat Party.
At this point, there doesn’t seem to be a way to be both Christian and Democrat.
Do you think voting for rabidly pro-abortion Democrats like Bernie Sanders is a sin?
