One of the scourges of our modern era that threatens the very moral fabric of the country, the liberty we enjoy, and our blessings before Almighty God is that of abortion, which in reality is nothing more than child sacrifice, legalized murder.

Millions of children are killed each year through the act of abortion, something Christians, conservatives, and pro-lifers of all stripes have been working tirelessly to stop, and have made bits and pieces of progress, but not nearly enough.

It’s sad to see so many American women willing to kill the pre-born all for the sake of convenience, so they can have all the sex they want without consequences or taking responsibility for their own actions. It’s pathetic and sad.

Now, however, it seems our reputation for providing folks with the tools and facilities to perform such a horrid procedure have spread to other countries as a 17-year-old illegal immigrant crossed the border just to murder her kid. The fate of this young life hangs in the balance, to be decided by a judge in the criminal justice system.

via The Daily Caller:

Even though the 17-year-old illegal immigrant received a judicial waiver allowing her — a minor — to get an abortion, the officers detaining her refuse to take her to an abortion clinic American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) lawyer, Rochelle Garza, told The Associated Press on Tuesday. She refused to make public the girl’s name or country of origin, citing privacy reasons.

“I feel like they are trying to coerce me to carry my pregnancy to term,” the girl told a federal court earlier in October, explaining that she was taken to a crisis pregnancy center instead of an abortion clinic.

The ACLU backs her claim, insisting that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) violates her rights by preventing her from getting an abortion.

The ACLU’s original lawsuit posited that the HHS violated the First Amendment by refusing the girl an abortion. Texas’ state attorney doesn’t quite see it the same way.

Illegal immigrants do not have a constitutional right to abortion, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement on Tuesday. Ruling in the girl’s favor “will create a right to abortion for anyone on earth who enters the U.S. illegally,” Paxton said. “And with that right, countless others undoubtedly would follow. Texas must not become a sanctuary state for abortions,” he added.

The judge in the case has actually decided not to hear the girl’s case because she is currently in Texas rather than in California, and obviously one state’s judges do not have jurisdiction over those of another state.

Not only do illegals not have the right to an abortion, if we’re to be a truly free people, we have to be a moral people, and that means NO ONE has the right to have an abortion. Period. It’s murder and should be prosecuted as such.

If a person is bound and determined to have sex outside of marriage, there are plenty of things you can do to prevent a pregnancy including condoms. No method of birth control is fool proof, so there’s always a risk. If you’re that worried about having kids, maybe you aren’t ready for the adult responsibility that comes with sex. Too immature for kids, too immature for sexual pleasure.

If we continue to allow abortion to run wild across our country, there’s little doubt we’re going to pay a hefty price for it by the hand of God, and it will be much deserved.

If we cannot protect the most basic rights — the right to life — for the most defenseless of citizens — the unborn — how can we ever hope to defend our freedom against tyranny in any form?
