God’s Only Party

Yesterday I noted that two Colorado Republican leaders continue to insist that their party promote faith-based politics. Today Gregg Jackson continues the crusade to ban abortion in his column for Town Hall.

Jackson’s goal, and his advise for Republicans, is “To end abortion… to believe that all life, both born and unborn, is an unalienable right and protect it at all cost.”

That is, a fertilized egg is a person and must be protected, regardless of the costs to the woman.

What Jackson fails to provide is any reason why we should think that a fertilized egg is a person. That’s not surprising, because there is no earthly reason.
