Progressivism’s Political Litmus Test

By ACLJ.org1502373395129

A compliant progressive must worship at the altar of abortion.

At least that is what Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards alluded to in a series of tweets responding to the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Rep. Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.), who proclaimed “there would be no abortion ‘litmus test’ and that the party would not withhold funding from pro-life candidates.”

In a furious tweet storm, Richards retorts:

Women’s health & rights are non-negotiable – incl. access to safe, legal abortion. We’ll hold any politician who says otherwise accountable. Trading away women’s health and rights will just alienate one of the most powerful political forces in this country. Access to safe, legal abortion is central to women’s economic empowerment and bodily autonomy.

NARAL Pro-Choice America – the abortion industry’s lobby in Washington – piles on:

As a progressive movement, we recognize that over the last decade there has been a massive erosion of access to abortion and attacks on contraception and we cannot back away from this fight without abandoning people and undercutting core constituencies in our base.

As we always have, progressives share our party with people who personally don’t believe that abortion is an option for them. This includes self-identified ‘pro-life’ legislators up until the moment they seek to impose those personal views on their constituents and the country.

If they vote to restrict abortion access or contraception access, they then undercut the party platform and they undercut the welfare of women.

To Richards, Planned Parenthood, and NARAL, “progressive” and “democrat” are synonymous with death.

Just like the well-practiced human “sacrificers” of yore – like the Aztecs who brought their children for the appeasement of the gods – our culture too now sacrifices their children for the appeasement of the gods, all in the name of progressivism. Those gods could include, but are not limited to: pleasing one’s self, signing one’s soul over to an ideological movement, or falling to personal or political peer pressure on issues like abortion. Now, added to that list, is political gain.

Over the past several decades, progressivism has pushed this religious doctrine of death into the mainstream, with hordes of murderous, abortion zealots screaming at the gates, their volume loud enough to coerce candidates into a corner, or to successfully vilify those who refuse to comply. The current leader of these hordes, Ms. Richards, lays out the terms of the sacrifice, that abortion is a “non-negotiable” – it is the political price any politician must pay.

Ilyse Hogue, the president of NARAL Pro-Choice America argues, “The Democratic Party cannot and will not win if it turns its back on women and our fundamental rights [(read: abortion)].”

Big Abortion and its of millions of dollars of campaign contributions are nothing more than pay to play – payment for sacrificing one’s soul and America’s children on the altar of abortion.

Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America, and the entire abortion industry have laid down the gauntlet – all abortion all the time, AKA abortion on demand. The political litmus test pushed by these “progressive” Big Abortion groups automatically fails any party, religion, or creed that is not in full compliance with their doctrine of death.

At the ACLJ we have a different view. We believe the first right of every human is life. It is endowed by our Creator. All other rights rest upon the fundamental right to life. No matter the party, religion, or creed, life is paramount and to be protected. We will not stop defending it.
