Why is it that someone who had an abortion and is remorseful, repented, is welcomed back into the Christ fold, while someone who 20 years ago felt a woman had a right to choose and since came to believe that was wrong is not?  TRUMP is not for abortion nor has he been for a very long time.

The hypocrisy is overwhelming here.  In the 70’s I never had any opinion on this issue, it just wasn’t talked about in my circles.  The right to choose became a big issue.  It never concerned me. I was complacent, then the more I heard about it,  I felt a woman had the right to choose in cases of rape etc. So, I thought it was good to have the right to choose.  Later, as I grew in knowledge and understanding that life begins at conception…I realized we were deceived in this right to choose.  I changed my opinion.  It was never a right, or so I came to believe.

So a man, who never judged those who chose to do so at the same time when many were proclaiming their rights, and many still are, is called immoral?  Even though, he has now seen in his own life that it is something he can no longer say is okay?

I look at what a person is today.  Many of the best advocates for pro life have experienced their own regret for making a wrong choice. When I listen to their testimonials, my heart goes out to these women.  Our society has been duped so many times by many. The ones who suffer the most are those who have believed the lies.  Yet, there is a way to be forgiven.  In that we are all the same, for each one of us has something we have done wrong, and each must account for our own actions with only one – that one is God.  Or so that is what I believe.

I admire those who have the conviction to change their stance on issues like abortion, and those that have the courage to share their own personal struggle with forgiveness and finding the love from others in order to go forward until they could learn to find love for themselves.

    What is vexing about Cruz and his claim is that he is deliberately unscrupulous, in suggesting to the voters, that it was last week that Trump changed his mind on this issue and became pro-life. Cruz implies that Trump is a charlatan and that he is mounting the pro life mantra for the expressed purpose of getting votes! Trump’s evolution took years. I recall a few months ago Trump saying that an event brought him to a new understanding. It went to my core. One has a right to change, indeed is mandated to change by life as we gather wisdom and understanding. I rabidly defended a women’s right to kill her child. As with many of my fellow sisters once I had my first child an epiphany took place. Truths started to settle and form a sentence in my head, “this is wrong, it is a life.” Like many others, circumstances caused the scales of lies to drop from my eyes. Why is Donald Trump not allowed that transformation?

    Lord knows, I am sorrowful for my misspent youth and participation in this evil, but I am forgiven and allowed to change. Cruz with his deceitful-self is framing it to imply that Trump is still pro-death! Misrepresentation and omission are a special category of malevolence. Who are the people that support Cruz? I am flustered that they cannot sense the bad vibes that emanate from this man?

    1. BlueSky,
      I could be wrong (I sincerely hope I am NOT), but I heard that Ms. Katrina Pierson, Mr. Trump’s outrageously on point spokesperson, was supposed to be “terminated”. I do recall vividly Mr. Trump being asked specifically about his change in world view in this regard, and he said something like “I had the opportunity to meet someone SO SPECIAL who was supposed to be aborted, that I changed my mind right there and then.” Whether that “someone” is Ms. Pierson, or not,…Case closed, in my book.
      BTW One of senator cruz’s owners is robert mercer, “open borders billionaire” (Who also owns Breitbart)

      1. He originally said in his first public statement on the question, that years ago a couple that he was good friends with were struggling whether or not to have the baby and they decided to have the baby and now the child is the apple of his friends eye. That made him look at the situation differently. He made that statement when Pierson was still with the Cruz campaign. So, no. I do believe that Trump’s stance or any of the stances on abortion is not what will change the issue. It will be women and their stance on the issue that will make the change. Just my opinion. As abortion was an issue, mentioned even in the book of Enoch of the wickedness pre flood.

      1. Thanks for clearing that up for me.I didn’t know Ms. Pierson used to work for senator cruz!? I bet that’s an interesting story in itself. Any insight?
        As for being pro-life / anti-murder, having no biological offspring, and only helping my lady raise both of her girls, I can’t speak to a p/maternal, innate instinct. But I don’t understand how after anyone goes through having a child, that they could condone murder?
