Answering Bernie Sanders’ question

By Mark Shepard at Renew America


In an October 27 debate for the U.S. Senate seat in Vermont, current Senator Bernie Sanders, an unapologetic self-avowed socialist, asked his Republican opponent (here at about minute 23:45) to essentially explain how it is that so many conservatives that advocate for limited government so often oppose laws protecting abortion at any time. Sanders’ question went unanswered during the debate; yet the limited-government case against legalizing abortion is solid.

What greater power can we give government than to make it the determiner of what lives deserve the protection of government and what lives do not deserve that protection. That Sanders’ focus was the “hidden” unborn is of no relevance. The fact is, we have given our government the greatest power possible – to set the scale that determines the relative value of human life. So indeed ensuring government does not have the right to choose who is and who is not expendable is very much a limited government position. It is keeping the ultimate power over life and death out of the hands of government.

Our aim should be that our government equally protects all people in keeping with our national creed that, “… that all men [people] are created equal, ….” Let this be the goal we strive for, rather than Sanders’ view that some people are created more deserving of “the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness [truth]” than other people, as determined by those wielding the power of government.
