Below, I am re-posting a post from October 2020, right before the 2020 election occurred. During the 2020 election campaigns, many prominent evangelicals urged Christians to vote against the Republican candidate for President. They did this because they wanted to virtue signal to their friends on the secular left.
If you’re pro-life, then you vote Republican. And you urge OTHER PEOPLE to vote Republican, too. You use all your powers of persuasion to convince people to vote Republican. You don’t have to lie about a candidate’s shortcomings, but your job as a Christian is to vote for the candidate who will get the killing of unborn children to stop. Not just hold your nose and vote Republican. But use your words and actions to convince others to vote Republican, too.
Barack Obama’s SCOTUS nominees DID NOT vote to repeal Roe v. Wade. Joe Biden’s SCOTUS nominees DID NOT vote to repeal Roe v. Wade. Donald Trump’s SCOTUS nominees DID vote to repeal Roe v. Wade.
People like David French, Russell Moore, Beth Moore, Karen Swallow Prior, Richard Mouw, Tim Keller, John Piper, etc. did everything they could to prevent a Republican from winning the presidency. They deserve ZERO credit for Friday’s SCOTUS decision. ZERO. CREDIT.

First, here’s Biden on abortion, reported by Life News:
The evidence is strong that Democrat presidential team Joe Biden and Kamala Harris support killing unborn babies in abortions up to birth.
[…]They want to force taxpayers to fund abortions, codify Roe v. Wade into federal law and reinstate rules that force nuns and other religious employers to fund birth control that may cause abortions in their employee health plans.
[…]Biden and Harris also have sponsored legislation to expand late-term abortions, including the “Women’s Health Protection Act.” Nicknamed the “Abortion Without Limits Until Birth Act” by pro-life groups, the bill would have invalidated nearly all state and federal abortion regulations, including waiting periods, informed consent requirements, bans on late-term abortions and sex-selection abortions and more.
Harris also voted against a bill to prohibit abortions after 20 weeks and another to protect newborns who survive abortions from infanticide.
Their party supports abortions without limits and taxpayer-funded abortions, too. The party platform calls for “reproductive health, rights, and justice … including safe and legal abortion” and opposes “federal and state laws that create barriers to reproductive health and rights.”
Second, let’s look at Trump’s record, from an article posted by the Susan B. Anthony List – the pro-life group that is most concerned with law, policy and judicial appointments:
Appointed Pro-Life Judges
In April, 2017, Judge Neil Gorsuch was successfully confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court. And in October, 2018, Judge Brett Kavanaugh was successfully confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court. To date, 157 of President Trump’s judicial nominees have been confirmed, including two Supreme Court justices, forty-three U.S. Courts of Appeals judges, and one hundred thirteen District Court judges.
Permitted States to Defund Planned Parenthood of Title X Funds
In April 2017, Congress sent a bill to President Trump’s desk that permits states to defund Planned Parenthood of Title X family planning funds passed in Congress. President Trump signed the bill which reverses an Obama-era rule that disbarred states from doing so. Because this was passed using the Congressional Review Act, future Administrations cannot enact a similar rule to Obama’s.
Stopped Tax Dollars Funding Abortion Overseas
President Trump not only reinstated the Mexico City Policy, but expanded it to the new Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance program. This new policy ensures that our tax dollars are protected from funding the abortion industry overseas across ALL global health spending, not just family planning dollars. The Bush-era Mexico City Policy protected roughly $500 million in spending – the new Trump policy protects over $8.8 billion overseas aid from funding abortion.
Defunded the Pro-Abortion UNFPA
The UNFPA has long been complicit in China’s oppressive population control activities, including birth limitation policies and forced abortions. President Trump’s State Department cut U.S. Taxpayer funding to the UNFPA.
Required Health Insurance Companies to Disclose if Plans Cover Abortion
The Trump Administration Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) issued a rule requiring that insurers specify in each plan Summary of Benefits whether the plan covers abortion.
Settlements & New Rule Regarding HHS Mandate
The Departments of HHS, Treasury, and Labor issued two interim final rules, which means they took effect immediately, while allowing a comment period, that provide permanent, enforceable relief from the previous HHS mandate for both religious objectors, such as Little Sisters of the Poor, and moral objectors, such as Susan B. Anthony List. The new rule also exempts private employers and educational institutions that have sincerely held religious beliefs or moral objections against providing contraceptives or abortifacient drugs.
New Office for Conscience Protection at HHS
In May 2019, the Trump administration finalized new regulations to strengthen enforcement of federal laws protecting the conscience rights of health care workers who do not want to participate in abortion. The regulations clarify what recourse is available to victims of discrimination under the law and what penalties the HHS Office of Civil Rights may enforce for violations. Additionally, in January 2018, the Department of Health & Human Services announced the creation of the Conscience and Religious Freedom Division within the Office for Civil Rights. This new office works to protect health care professionals who do not want to participate in abortion. In May, 2019, HHS issued a proposed rule amending Obama-era regulations, clarifying that Section 1557 shall not force a recipient of federal funding to provide or pay for an abortion. It shall also be consistent with the First Amendment and with pro-life provisions, conscience provisions and religious liberty protections in current law.
Allowed States to Defund Planned Parenthood of Medicaid Funds
The Obama administration attempted to prevent states from defunding Planned Parenthood of Medicaid dollars, issuing guidance claiming this may be a violation of federal law. In January 2018, the Trump administration rescinded this guidance, allowing states to defund Planned Parenthood of Medicaid dollars as they see fit.
Cut Planned Parenthood’s Tax Funding by up to $60 Million
In February, 2019, the Trump administration finalized the Protect Life Rule to redirect Title X family planning program funds away from the abortion industry. The rule advances President Trump’s promise to stop taxpayer funding of abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood, who will no longer receive Title X funding if they choose not to comply.
Canceled Huge Contract for Taxpayer-Funded Experimentation with Body Parts of Aborted Babies
In June, 2019, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced they would not renew a major contract with the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) to fund research using the body parts of aborted babies. (learn more)
My favorite was the conscience protections! I really hate the idea of being forced by secular leftists to violate my conscience.
I think it’s very important for pro-life voters of all parties to understand that Trump has taken action on pro-life concerns. He listened to pro-life leaders, and did far more than other Republican presidents who were pro-life in name only. Americans often have this annoying habit of forming their opinions based on what they feel and what they hear in the culture. But we need to be informed voters. Let’s look at the facts and decide based on actions.

It’s funny that pro abortion advocates was saying the decision would effects women of color the most. Even though forgetting that planned parenthood whole mission is to kill of the black race in America.
Harris that woman claims to be black but is okay with black babies being murdered after leaving the womb. But mad that a criminal like George Floyd is killed.
Trump was the least racist and the most American president in recent years. For every bad thing Trump did he did 5 good things and the bad things he did was telling the brutal truth and not caring who it hurts.
Obama was simply a puppet from the Democrats to gain votes from the black community. What has Obama did for the black community? Absolutely nothing, but he helped the alphabet community.
If Democrats and Liberals wasn’t racist then they would of denounce planned parenthood and stop supporting them, but nope they tried to bury the past or ignore the history.
And for the so called Christians that support abortions, if the fetus(small child) isn’t a human nor a life, then doesn’t that means Jesus in Mary womb wasn’t alive? Doesn’t that mean he wasn’t a human being? So if she aborted Jesus that means God shouldn’t be mad since Jesus wasn’t alive in the womb.

Excellent point! Libs absolutely WOULD have aborted Jesus or pushed for His abortion, especially under those circumstances.

I don’t know what they mean by my body my choice, it’s illegal to murder people. I have two hands, I can say my body my choice and go out and assault someone or stab someone and murder them. I would go to prison for doing said crimes.
So what the difference of a woman who is designed to carry the child to decide to end the life of the child because she’s irresponsible? It’s not her body being harmed, it’s the body of the child who is innocent.

The body that’s of interest is the one inside them, that they created by their desire to have reckless, irresponsible sex with a guy they were attracted to, but who had lousy character.

Yes, yes, and yes! “My womb, my choice,” they like to say, but what about the body inside that womb? It all boils down to the fact they want to have irresponsible sex.
What amazes me the most is how women, whose primal instinct is motherhood, have been so blinded as to view children as disposable, sacrificed in the altar of selfishness!

I’m out in public witnessing a lot on sidewalks and intersections, and in those circumstances, I’ve learned to have ready quips in mind. So when they say “my body, my choice,” I have several stock replies:
“That’s what rapists say.”
“That’s what pedophiles say.”
“That’s what sex traffickers say.”
“That’s what slaveowners said.”
“If it were YOUR body that you were aborting, then YOU are the one who would end up in the jar.”
That last one can’t be used for a simple drive-by, but the first four can.
“They deserve ZERO credit for Friday’s SCOTUS decision. ZERO. CREDIT.”
Not only them, but consider your average pastor and priest for the last 49 years. At best, 99% of them said nothing, or little, at all about abortion from their pulpits. A certain small percentage tossed a few crumbs to the unborn on Sanctity of Life Sunday every January. Did they preach that abortion is murder? Nope, but it is now in about half of the states.
Will they finally discover their spines this Sunday??? I’m not optimistic.
