On May 2, House Representative Eric Swalwell tweeted, “The Republicans won’t stop with banning abortion. They want to ban interracial marriage. Do you want to save that? Well, then you should probably vote.” This is a highly biased statement and should be discounted immediately, but he has made comments like this before, which leads me to believe that he is just a liar. Incidentally, one of the five justices whom Swalwell is referring to who he imagines would be prone to “ban(ning) interracial marriage” is Justice Clarence Thomas, who is black, and married to a white woman, which means presumably he’d be ruling on banning his own marriage. Logic 101 personified!
However, let’s get back to the main point. Abortion is not a Republican nor a Democratic issue. It is a God issue. One of the ten commandments says “Thou shall not Kill.” If the fetus has a heart beat, then of course it is alive! Now if you’re worried about killing a fetus which has a heart beat then of course if you want an abortion you are killing that fetus, which in time will become a baby. Many individuals, including Scott Peterson, were convicted of multiple murders for killing a single pregnant woman: One for the mother, and the other for the fetus she was carrying, which later would have become a human being. So they can’t have it both ways.
