The Macabre Leftist Culture of Death

Destroying all limits on abortion “rights” is the ultimate goal for Democrats.

Back in the middle of the 20th century, the Democrat Party began to embrace an aggressively secular worldview that expunged the notion of Divine authority over humanity and replaced it with humanism. The fallout from this seismic political and ethical shift has resulted in the two distinct attributes seen in today’s Democrat Party: First, an oversized, always-expanding view of the role and authority of government, and second, the devaluation of Liberty and individual rights. The great irony of secular humanism is that it results in the dehumanization of the individual.

Nowhere is the flawed nature of the Democrats’ secularist, dehumanizing ethic more exposed than in their recent legislative efforts to legalize abortion carte blanche. Last week, Democrat New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo had the One World Trade Center spire lit up in pink to celebrate the state passing its dubiously named Reproductive Health Act, which now allows for legal abortions up until birth as well as removing abortion from the criminal code. Cuomo declared it to be a “historic victory for New Yorkers and our progressive values.” New York now joins seven other states that have no gestational limits on abortion.

On Wednesday, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam revealed just how widespread this moral rot is within the Democrat Party. Seeking to defend his support for the Repeal Act, a bill defeated the day before that would have removed all state restrictions on abortion, Northam argued, “If a mother is in labor … the infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physician and mother.”

Northam’s shocking comments brought severe rebukes from several Republicans, including Sen. Marco Rubio, who stated, “I never thought I would see the day America had government officials who openly support legal infanticide.” Sen. Ben Sasse was more incensed, exclaiming, “This is morally repugnant. … In just a few years pro-abortion zealots went from ‘safe, legal, and rare’ to ‘keep the newborns comfortable while the doctor debates infanticide.’ I don’t care what party you’re from — if you can’t say that it’s wrong to leave babies to die after birth, get the hell out of public office.”

Now the Democrat-controlled state of Rhode Island is running to the front of the pro-infanticide line, with Democrat Gov. Gina Raimondo pledging to sign legislation that would make abortion legal after viability to “preserve … health.”

From a political-tactics perspective, Democrat-controlled states are engaging in these legislative actions due to their fear that the Supreme Court may overturn Roe v. Wade. However, delusional leftists who think they’re living in “The Handmaid’s Tale” are intentionally misrepresenting the impact of such a ruling, which would simply hand legislative authority back to individual states. They’re taking advantage of the population’s misunderstanding to garner votes while at the same time pushing for unlimited abortion.

The lust for power even to the point of advocating for the killing of babies is beyond despicable.
