“If you didn’t believe that elections have consequences….”

Carol Tobias, President, National Right to Life
Wow! If you didn’t believe that elections have consequences, the past few weeks should have been able to convince you otherwise.

In a nine-day period, the Senate (following House action in February) voted to overturn an Obama administration rule that prevented states from withholding tax funding from Planned Parenthood through the Title X program; the Trump administration notified Congress that, because the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) violates the Kemp-Kasten amendment by supporting “a program of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization” in China, UNFPA would no longer be eligible to receive foreign aid funds from the United States; and to top it all off, the Senate confirmed Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court.

I really wish we could have this string of victories at least once a month!

The confirmation of now-Justice Neil Gorsuch was the high point of everything that has happened so far this past week. The Senate defeated an attempted filibuster by pro-abortion Democrats. Justice Gorsuch, a man who strongly believes in the primacy of our Constitution, is 49 years old and will hopefully be on the High Court for many, many years to come.
