Since when did liberals become concerned about saving children’s lives? A recent report on Fox News details outrage over proposed budget cuts to the USAID program.
A top brass from the U.S. Development and Humanitarian Missions committee testified before Congress several weeks ago, warning that a budget plan passed by House Republicans would lead to the deaths of 70,000 children.
USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah testified the $61 billion cut would lead to the deaths of thousands of children in a malaria control program.
Instead of a decrease, Shah requested a 10.7 billion increase over the current level. Monies allocated pay for specially treated nets, immunizations, and sprays to ward off malaria carrying mosquitoes.
California representative, Jerry Lewis, responded with the following statement to FoxNews.com, “Nearly every administration witness appearing before the Appropriations Committee has put forward nightmare scenarios and dire numbers to argue why we should not be reducing spending in any program.
” He further remarked that if cuts were not made, programs like the malaria control effort might have to be eliminated entirely in the future.
Don’t get me wrong, I applaud such efforts to save and better the lives of children. Without children, the future of the world perishes.
However, this philanthropically drive to save children’s lives needs to extend into the Planned Parenthoods and abortion clinics across America.
In response to proposed cuts, an Obama official argued that slashing funds to USAID will result in 70,000 child fatalities, and yet liberals cringe at cutting funds to Planned Parenthood which slaughters 300,000 babies in the womb every year. Does anyone else see the hypocrisy?
For whatever reason, liberals claim “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” only applies to those outside the womb. Some argue that babies in utero are not even human until the latter stages of pregnancy.
America has forgotten its Godly heritage and ignored what God says about the issue. In Psalm 139 the psalmist writes, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb, I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you when I was in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.” God’s pretty clear about life in the womb.
The Master artisan crafts together humanity at conception, ordaining a person’s path of life before an individual inhales or exhales for the first time.
If God drove a car, He’d sport an “I’m extremely pro-life” bumper sticker. Sure, God applauds our efforts to help needy and hurting children in third world countries, but His heart must break momentarily every time a surgical knife and vacuum snuff out the life of an unwanted child.
Why only a moment? He wipes His eyes to welcome them into the glories of Heaven. How He wishes people would offer good homes here first, as children are a blessing from the Lord.
