Using tax dollars for abortion wrong

As Christians, we turn to the Bible and see what God says regarding the value of human life and abortion. One example can be taken from Jeremiah 1:5, which reads: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart, I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

This is God talking to the prophet Jeremiah and explaining why he created him. He knew him even before he was born. He was valued as a human being before and after he was in the womb.

This tells me God valued Jeremiah and he values every human being from the time of conception. Life shouldn’t be ripped out and destroyed by abortion.

Since 1973, when the infamous Roe V Wade decision was passed down by the U.S. Supreme Court, 62 million human beings have been destroyed by abortion — 62 million lives that God had a plan for.

In 1988, Mother Teresa (Nobel Peace Prize recipient and Catholic missionary who ministered to lepers and the homeless in the slums of Calcutta, India) said, “Abortion has become the greatest destroyer of peace because it destroys two lives: the life of the child and the conscience of the mother.”

I do not want my tax dollars funding abortions home or abroad. When this government (Biden administration) takes my money and uses it for things I do not morally agree with, it becomes my business.

Who checks on the fact checkers?

Fact checkers. Do you ever wonder who their checkers are? What is fact one day may not be fact the next after events occur. An example is President Biden’s Jan. 28 order rescinding the “Mexico City Policy,” a federal policy that barred U.S. foreign aid from being used to perform or promote abortions.

If I were a “fact checker” and I came across a fact or opinion I disliked or disagreed with, what could I do to squash any interest in said subject? I could issue a disclaimer. When these pop up, you’d better look closer, a lot closer. What is it about fact checkers’ computers you’re not supposed to know?

The double standard in D.C. over riot incitement is laughable. All year you heard top Democratic leaders encourage riotous behavior, but President Trump uses the word “fight” and their heads explode with “righteous indignation.”

Chris Cuomo said when do protests need to be peaceful. Double standard to the nth degree.
