A Glimmer of Hope: California Initiative Aims to Make Abortion First-Degree Murder

The September 11th terror attacks on the New York World Trade Center claimed 3,000 innocent lives. Americans came together as one to denounce the despicable act perpetrated by Al-Qaeda terrorists, mourning the tragic loss of their loved ones. The existence of true evil was never more apparent on that historic day.

However, since 9/11 and even before the fateful events, a different type of terror has been silently claiming innocent lives. Every single day, over 3,000 innocent lives are ended in America through abortion.

Leftist-paradise California is responsible for 17% of the nation's aborted children. As over 400 lives are clinically snuffed out every day, a group of pro-life activists are taking a stand.

From the Sacramento Bee:

California supporters of an incendiary statewide initiative aiming for the 2018 ballot to criminalize abortion as first-degree murder have been cleared to begin collecting signatures.

Secretary of State Alex Padilla, acting in his ministerial role as the state’s chief elections official, issued the announcement late Friday.

Should it reach the ballot, the measure is unlikely to pass in California, where polling has showed strong support for abortion rights.

It also would undoubtedly be challenged on constitutional grounds because it eliminates a woman’s constitutional privacy right to end a pregnancy. The measure, in addition, seeks to expand the definition of abortion to include some forms of birth control as well as medical research and in vitro fertilization.

Murdering a child is not a right. Murdering a child has never been constitutional.

The proponent of the initiative, Daniel Ehinger, is part of the Abortion Abolitionist movement, a religious group that aims to end the aptly-termed "Death Industry." He announced the good news on his facebook page with this message:

“We received our circulating title to gather signatures and work to get Abolishing Abortion on the November 6th, 2018 ballot through a state ballot initiative that would amend our constitution. Please pray for our efforts. JESUS!”
— Daniel Ehinger

In order to qualify for ballot, the initiative needs to gather over half a million signatures from registered voters. Although California's leftists won't be budging on the issue any time soon, this is a step in the right direction. If the initiative makes it to the 2018 ballots, only then will the real fight for life begin.

Stay alert. Stay alive.
