Politicians Choose Money over the Plight of the Powerless
The Legacy of the Democrats: Selling Babies for Votes
In a 22 September 2015 LifeNews article, Democrats revealed themselves to value their donors over the lives of babies:
“Senate Democrats today blocked a vote on a pro-life Senate bill to ban late-term abortions — a bill that would save as many as 18,000 unborn babies form abortions each and every year.
The Senate voted today to stop the Democrats’ filibuster of the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, legislation that would ban abortions after 20 weeks — as neither Congress nor state legislatures can vote to ban all abortions under Roe v. Wade. The bill highlights how unborn babies feel intense pain when they are killed in abortions. The vote comes at a time when 10 expose’ videos have exposed the Planned Parenthood abrogation business selling aborted babies and their body parts.
‘What I am asking every colleague is this: look in your hearts and help us stand up for the most innocent life,’ said Senate Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in advance of the vote.
But Democrats defeated the cloture vote 54-42, with pro-life Senate Republicans not getting the 60 votes needed to end debate and proceed to a vote on the pro-life bill itself. Three Democrats joined with Republicans to support the pro-life bill, including Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Bob Casey of Pennsylvania and Joe Donnelly of Indiana. Two pro-abortion republicans, Susan Collins of Maine and Mark Kirk of Illinois, voted with Democrats to support late-term abortions.”
Naturally, the quip about how Democrats “value their donors over the lives of babies” comes from a Fox News article, where we find:
The Tie that Binds Democrats
“The financial ties between Planned Parenthood and Democrats run deep, with the taxpayer-funded women’s health care and abortion provider’s employees and political arms donating at least $25 million to party lawmakers over the past 15 years, according to a FoxNews.com analysis.
The money, which flowed through an extensive web of Planned Parenthood employees, political action committees and soft-money donors accounts for 99 percent of all political donations linked to Planned Parenthood, leaving little doubt about the partisan preference of the organization. Amid calls for ending the organization’s roughly $500 million in annual federal funding, Planned Parenthood may need its political muscle more than ever.
‘These types of contributions — any contributions — to public officials are important and they do sway votes,’ said Jeanne Zaino, a political science professor at Iona College in New Rochelle, N.Y.”
The Example of Obama: Both Pro-Abortion and Pro-Infanticide
In a 23 September 2015 post on the Gateway Pundit, Jim Hoft presented links to Obama’s 2009 support of funding foreign abortions and similar measures:
In 2009, Barack Obama has signed several pieces of abortion legislation including funding foreign abortions. He also signed legislation to use taxpayer money to kill embryos in research. And, democrats are pushing legislation that will force healthcare providers to perform abortions even if it violates their moral or religious convictions.
Barack Obama is the most radical pro-abortion and infanticide president in the last 35 years. Barack Obama even voted 4 times to support infanticide during his political career.
But, that didn’t stop Barack Obama from promising Pope Benedict in 2009 that he would reduce abortions. That was another lie.
Then in 2012 the Obama Administration has approved the use of fetal brains in laboratory experimentation.
This week the White House compared Barack Obama to the pope.
Praises to Molech
Much as this blog has pointed out the Democrat obsession with death, Matt Walsh of the Blaze contends that #ShoutYourAbortion Proves That Modern Liberalism Is A Satanic Death Cult. In that article, he points out:
Progressives love to say they aren’t “pro-abortion,” but that is a more and more self-evident lie. Nobody who possesses even the slightest hint of a moral qualm with abortion could actually oppose a bill to protect kids after five months in the womb. Similarly, nobody who isn’t an enormous fan of abortion could be anything but repulsed by the hip new fad that swept through the internet like wild fire yesterday.
It’s called #ShoutYourAbortion, and it encourages women to boast confidently of killing their children. The hashtag has been trending on Twitter for over a day, and many hundreds and thousands of women have taken the opportunity to “shout” with pride about the magical wonders of baby murder. I’m sure the aborted babies would have loved to participate in this campaign, but they’re all dead and decomposed in dumpsters or dissected in petri dishes.
Just as he pointed out, a number of women did tweet:
My abortion allowed me to finish graduate school and travel the world. #ShoutYourAbortion

Relevant Bible Verses
God required the Israelites to remove anyone who burned their children alive to be put to death themselves.
Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “You shall also say to the sons of Israel:
‘Any man from the sons of Israel or from the aliens sojourning in Israel who gives any of his offspring to Molech, shall surely be put to death; the people of the land shall stone him with stones.’ “ (Leviticus 20:1-2 NASB)
The men of Judah went away from God by honoring Molech.
They built the high places of Baal that are in the valley of Ben-hinnom to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire to Molech, which I had not commanded them nor had it entered My mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin. (Jeremiah 32:35 NASB)
As noted here, God has never approved of human sacrifice.
But God turned away and delivered them up to serve the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, ‘It was not to Me that you offered victims and sacrifices forty years in the wilderness, was it, O house of Israel? You also took along the tabernacle of Moloch and the star of the god Rompha, the images which you made to worship. I also will remove you beyond Babylon.’ (Acts 7:42-43 NASB)
