What would I ask a presidential candidate if I had the opportunity to speak with him or her one-on-one? I’ve often wondered that, but never actually answered my own question because the reality of actually conversing with one of them in that manner seemed remote, if not unrealistic.
“If you win the presidency and your party gains control of both houses, is there a way to overturn Roe v. Wade without the Supreme Court?”
Believe it or not, one of the candidates pictured here had the answer, the other didn’t. Not that both didn’t want to end the horrific holocaust of the unborn in our nation, but only one knew a strategy to get it done in spite of the judicial branch’s deathly opinion in 1973.
In all fairness, I haven’t had the opportunity to ask any of the other 354 candidates, (okay, that’s hyperbolic…relax!) regardless of party. But if I were afforded that opportunity, I’d ask them all that same question. Without hesitation. Without apology.
Why? Because the issue in our nation is the issue of life and the right to it for all persons, born or unborn. What is a strong economy if we’re killing our up-and-coming workforce? What good is dealing with illegal immigration if our own babies don’t feel safe in their own borders? Why worry about Social Security if there’s no security for those who make up our social system? Pick an issue—it doesn’t rise above stopping the slaughter of living babies in the wombs of mothers. There is no freedom more precious than the freedom to live. It is foundational to all the others. And that’s precisely why putting an end to abortion is the first thing I pray our next president does.
By the way, there is an answer to the question. Do you know it? Love to hear your thoughts and opinions, so feel free to chime in!
