RALEIGH – While Democrats are obviously aligned with pro-abortion interests, it is still striking every time a candidate embraces the support for abortion as an attribute of their candidacy. It’s hard to wrap one’s mind around, yet here we are with our Democratic governor, running for reelection, and touting his endorsement from Planned Parenthood, the nations’s leading abortion provider.
Proud to receive a vote of confidence from an organization responsible for ending the lives of millions of unborn children; proud to tell the voters of the state that as governor he’s acted to ensure the snuffing out of life is able to continue unabated, even if the baby survives the first attempt; proud to preach to a narrow slice of the electorate that demonstrably favors convenience over a human life, when it comes to pregnancy.
That’s the Democratic option for governor in 2020. North Carolina may be a growing, changing state, but it’s hard to imagine a majority of voters take the same pride in the pro-abortion agenda. Cooper does, and he wants you to know it. We aren’t likely to forget.
Meanwhile, the leading contender on the Republican side, Dan Forest, has a different kind of pride. His is a pride moored to the understanding that every life is precious and worth protecting. He takes such pride in it that he challenges the existing order of political correctness, risking controversy, but knowing the rightness of his position. In response, Democrats scurry to defend the likes of Margaret Sanger, a racist eugenicist and founder of Planned Parenthood.
The sanctity of life, as opposed to the inconvenience of it.
The choice couldn’t be more clear on this and other issues of importance. Come November, hopefully North Carolina will take pride in choosing wisely.
