It's been a long time since Planned Parenthood had such a good friend in the White House. And CEO Alexis McGill Johnson is making sure they cash in on every moment.
On the eve of Joe Biden's swearing in, the head of America's biggest abortion business said, "We have a ton of work to do to undo the harm over the last four years, but knowing we have champions there who understand what needs to happen in the first 100 days is tremendously exciting," she told NBC News. "We are ready to hit the ground running on Day 1," she has insisted, pointing out that filling key posts with abortion extremists is one of the group's biggest goals.
So far so good, based on Biden's picks -- not the least of whom is his vice president. Kamala Harris, as even Newsweek has noted, is to the Left of even Bernie Sanders, voting -- not once, but twice -- to destroy babies born alive. Now, the focus turns to other vacancies, where the most radical pro-abortion administration in history can solidify its deadly goals. "We know that personnel is policy," Johnson said. "So we're making sure that those positions are filled with sexual and reproductive health champions."
Another way they plan to force Biden's hand is with their "Blueprint for Sexual and Reproductive Health, Rights and Justice," where they spell out "first priorities" that would roll back President Trump's pro-life accomplishments. Together with other groups, Planned Parenthood demands immediate action that shows Biden's commitment to abortion-on-demand. Of course, Joe Biden (who NBC was careful to label as a "devout Catholic") seems more than willing to comply -- making several controversial picks to lead Health and Human Services (HHS), among other things.
But the irony of this conversation all comes back to the shame-game Never Trumpers want to play with conservatives now. They argue that Christians should all be so embarrassed for supporting Donald Trump, pointing to the fallout from the Capitol riot. It's a convenient and disingenuous argument, considering that before January 6 (or even as far back as November 3) the church had literally hundreds of reasons to vote for Trump. Even now, Planned Parenthood is making our point for us. These last four years of pro-life policy are exactly why no Christian should regret their support for the Trump administration.
If his policies were so hollow, so inconsequential, then why is the Left so committed to overturning them? The reality is, Donald Trump and his administration did more to protect the unborn in America and around the world than any president in U.S. history. And if that's something some evangelicals think we should be ashamed of supporting, then shame on them. They've clearly lost their moral equilibrium.
Right now, the church should be focused on one thing -- and one thing only -- and that's prayer. It's time to stop pointing fingers over events none of us could control and start getting on our knees in a humble posture for our nation. America and the incoming Biden administration desperately need God's guidance. We need to plead His protection over this nation and ask for His wisdom to permeate and direct our new leaders. Join FRC over the next several weeks in diligently focusing on these seven prayer points as we seek unity and healing for this nation -- and the church. Also, tune in Wednesday evening at 8:00 pm for this week's edition of Pray Vote Stand.
