BT Daily: Post-Birth Abortion?

[Darris McNeely] Every year in the United
States, the President delivers what is called the State of the Union Address before the
assembled houses of the Congress. And this year, that will be done. As I was thinking about that phrase, “The
State of the Union,” in connection with some of the headlines that have been making news
here in America, I have to come back to the topic of abortion that seems to be coming
back to the top of the list again. This week, there was a push in the Virginia
legislature, the state of Virginia, to pass a very extreme abortion bill that would allow
a doctor to actually take the life of a baby even up to the full term or after it is born. And watching and listening to the description
of the lawmakers, the governor of the state of Virginia, explaining exactly how this would
be done, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing, that in the United States of America, the
land of the free, the land where there is such a concern for helping people, and providing
for the underprivileged immigrants, and the dispossessed of the world, we would be pushing
legislation to take life after it leaves the womb of the mother. Fortunately, the state of Virginia, the legislature,
killed such a bill in committee, but it’ll probably come back. In fact, news reports say that there are other
states that are pushing extreme abortion bills that will allow late-term abortions and making
it perfectly legal. As I’ve reported in other dailies, this is
coming about as a result of a fear of overturning Roe versus Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision
which legalized abortion in the United States. That fear is pushing people now to a greater
degree of brutality. That’s the only word I can use because it’s
a word that comes actually from scripture. In 2 Timothy 3, the apostle Paul describes
what conditions will be like, as he calls it, in the last days, 2 Timothy 3:1. It’s a description here in verses 1 and 2
of what he says it will be like in the last days and he says, it will be perilous times. And there are several conditions of human
nature and society that the apostle Paul lists of, not only his world in the 1st century
but unfortunately, our world in the 21st century. And in verse 2, he uses the word, “brutal.” People will be brutal. I can’t think of any better word to describe
the desire of legislators in the United States of America to pass such legislation, such
laws that would allow abortion at that stage and actually take a viable life outside the
womb of a mother. We’ve entered some very interesting and difficult
times in the world and especially in America. It is time to pray, Thy Kingdom Come. That’s BT Daily. Join us next time.
