I’m one of those who votes for the platform, not the person. I’ve been told that I’m a one-issue voter, and I don’t deny it. The Democratic platform is pro-abortion, and the Republican platform is pro-life. Life matters to me, so you can be assured that I voted for the party of life.
As of today, life did not win this presidential election. I want to cry, but instead I’m singing a stanza of an old hymn, “This Is My Father’s World.”
“This is my Father’s world, O let me ne’er forget That though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the Ruler yet. This is my Father’s world: Why should my heart be sad? The Lord is King: let the heavens ring! God reigns: let earth be glad!”
With all my being I know that God is the Ruler yet! Don’t be mistaken, I’m not ready to be glad about the results of this election. The assurance of God’s victory is slow to come for me. But I will still fight on the side of what’s right: life begins at conception and ends at natural death. Right now I need to trust God, for He will be victorious in the battle between life and death. Let’s pray.

I’ve been on the verge of tears all week. Now, they have spilled over. I have told myself the same things you have, and your words confirm what I feel. God is still on the throne.
Yes, God is our hope. Readings today included Jeremiah 29, Mark 16, and Romans 15:13.
Here’s some encouragement. Roe v Wade was made into law in 1973. Since the first years after 1973, the number of abortions has fallen every year. However, during the terms of presidents who are Democrats, the rate falls most sharply. President-elect Joe Biden is a Democrat and a Catholic. I believe we will see an even steeper decline because he will support programs that assist women in gaining the housing, insurance, and assistance they need in order to keep and to support their children.
Melinda, the sources I’ve read do not agree that abortion rates are lower during Democrat presidents’ terms. Abortions took a sharp increase in 1980 and have had a steady decline since then for various reasons, excluding who is in office.
