To the Editor:
A recent event sponsored by state Rep. Hugh Shine, District 55, focused on the issue of pro-life. It began with two Texas pro-life leaders claiming that while they would love to see abortion abolished, this is not going to happen.
Voter Alert: Abortion will be abolished as soon as “pro-life” leaders and politicians, like Hugh Shine and his guests, take God’s call for justice for the pre-born seriously enough to move from their pragmatic approach to a principled call for an end to America’s silent holocaust.
Not once was it mentioned that nearly 90 percent of Republican delegates to our last state convention voted to make the abolition of abortion a legislative priority for this past session, calling on the Texas Legislature to: “Abolish abortion by enacting legislation to stop the murder of unborn children; And to ignore and refuse to enforce any and all federal statutes, regulations, executive orders, and court rulings which would deprive an unborn child of the right to life.”
Why did so many Texas Republicans vote to end abortion now? And why did so few Republican legislators, like Hugh Shine, fail to join in this bold and urgent priority?
In truth, it is because of politicians such as Shine and their jaded approach to this grave subject that 45 years after Roe v. Wade, over 3,000 innocent babies still die daily from this gruesome procedure — not to mention all the untold victims of over-the-counter abortifacients.
Abolition of abortion IS possible if, upon seeing this as God sees it — murder — we watch what God can do when we join Him in calling for true justice for these babies.
We MUST rise up and call for abolition now, nothing less!
