‘We should protect all life’: Cruz’s consistent pro-life stance contrasts with ‘bizarre’ Trump fits

MADISON, Wis. — Calling Donald Trump’s recent oscillations on abortion “bizarre,” Ted Cruz laid out his own view on abortion in a Fox News town hall the day before Wisconsin’s primary.

Over the past week, Donald Trump has oscillated between advocating “punishments” for mothers seeking abortions, and saying abortion should be kept legal. Cruz knocked Trump’s “bizarre” statements. “It showed that he has not considered seriously this issue.”

A self-described pro-choice moderate voter asked Cruz if his presidency would lead to outlawing abortion. “We should protect all life,” Cruz said, arguing for the issue to be settled through the democratic process, as opposed to the current situation where federal courts have taken abortion largely out of the hands of elected legislators.

Roe v. Wade is not settled law, Cruz told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, but is a “classic case of judicial activism.” Undoing Roe would return abortion to elected legislators and the state. In that case, Cruz said Monday, pro-lifers would need to persuade the country to join them in passing laws to protect the unborn.

    The Congress, if it has the will, should pass laws that allow the states to determine what they want…on abortion, gay rights, etc. People can move to the state(s) that suits their wishes then. People move for jobs, marriage and all kinds of things, so they can move to whichever state passes the laws they feel define their lifestyle. It’s not the best, but we live in a fallen world. The fallen world does not want God’s laws to rule over them, but why should the rest be punished? God’s judgment is and has been falling on America because of these sins. MANY do not want to live under the influence of these sins or to have their children indoctrinated by the proponents of them. At least there would be a choice.

    Pray for righteousness to be restored and for the peace of Jerusalem
