Former Vice President Joe Biden announced his pro-abortion running mate recently, California Senator Kamala Harris. One news agency says the move makes this “the most pro-abortion presidential ticket in American history.” Since then, the National Abortion Rights Action League committed to “powering Vice President Biden to victory this November.”
Why does abortion stand at the threshold of high political office? Why is the abortion debate seemingly unsolvable? Abortion is a symptom of a larger problem. Abortion points to a deeper belief about what it means to be human. Government’s role is to protect the life and inalienable rights of the living. If preborn boys and girls are human, then government is obligated to protect them. If they are human and government advocates their destruction, then government is complicit to the greatest injustice in history.
