The Republican Party was born out of an abolitionist spirit. The idea that slavery, wherever it was found should be abolished. These men and women believed that the practice and industry of slavery were evil and had to be stopped.
Likewise, there is now a strong movement sweeping Christian congregations. It is calling for the abolition of abortion. They see that this practice is murder, no matter the situation and no matter the condition of the baby.
And this group was empowered to do much in Texas.

The Republican party of Texas has approved language for its platform expressing support for the total abolition of abortion.
“We call upon the Texas Legislature to enact legislation stopping the murder of unborn children; and to ignore and refuse to enforce any and all federal statutes, regulations, executive orders, and court rulings, which would deprive an unborn child of the right to life,” it reads.
Their view is critical but easy to understand. All life begins at conception, and every conception produces human life. If we believe that every child is a person from conception, then to abort that pregnancy is murder.
Then it is murder to kill a child with Down Syndrome or a child produced through rape or incest. In both cases, we are punishing the unborn child for something that he/she has not done. Therefore, the only righteous answer to this problem is the elimination of the wicked practice of murder of the unborn.

“All innocent human life must be respected and safeguarded from fertilization to natural death; therefore, the unborn, the aged, and the physically or mentally challenged have a fundamental individual right to life, which cannot be infringed,” the abortion plank reads. “We are resolute in our support of the reversal of Roe v. Wade.”
This is the strongest stand against the murder industry yet taken by any political party. It is one that I hope they will have the resolve to see to the end.
