Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke has repeatedly refused to support a law that would stop infanticide and require doctors to care for babies who are born alive after failed abortions.

The issue of Democrat support for post-birth abortions continues to shock Americans as the US Senate has been attempting to pass the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act

Watch O’Rourke here: https://bit.ly/2OiPPoQ  

Not only does O’Rourke have a 100-percent pro-abortion voting record like the other Democrat presidential candidates, he also sponsored a radical pro-abortion bill that would have legalized abortions for basically any reason up to birth.

The so-called “Women’s Health Protection Act” was introduced in Congress in 2017, with dozens of Democrat sponsors, including likely presidential candidates Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Kristen Gillibrand and Bernie Sanders.

Nicknamed the “Abortion Without Limits Until Birth Act” by pro-life groups, the bill would have invalidated nearly all state and federal abortion regulations, including waiting periods, informed consent requirements, bans on late-term abortions and sex-selection abortions and more.

Additionally, Mark testified before the Ohio Health Committee on the Heartbeat Bill. The measure is expected to get a vote next week and be signed soon by Ohio Governor Mike DeWine.

On Tuesday, proponent testimony was heard in the Ohio House Health Committee for SB 23, the Heartbeat Bill. Janet Porter of Faith2Action and Mark Harrington of Created Equal testified. Mark’s testimony begins at 3:10:04 and ends at 3:19:01.

Watch it here: https://bit.ly/2ujE2xr

Here is an excerpt from Mark's testimony:

"It is the responsibility of every representative of this general assembly to reject the court in this case, defy Roe v. Wade, and reclaim their authority over the writing of laws and pass bills which protect preborn people from murder, just like born people are protected from murder."

Please be in prayer for passage of this bill. The Ohio Health Committee will receive opponent testimony next Tuesday and a committee vote could be forthcoming very soon.

Watch and listen to Mark discuss these issues and provide practical action every American can take who loves life and liberty.

It’s a Bad Week to be Pro-Abortion | The Mark Harrington Show | 3-15-19

It’s a Bad Week to be Pro-Abortion | The Mark Harrington Show | 3-15-19

This week, Ohio continued to be at the forefront of the abortion debate. In the past few days, the Heartbeat Bill passed the Ohio Senate, Ohio Senate Democrats refused to condemn infanticide, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Planned Parenthood can be defunded, and abortionist Martin Haskell’s late term abortion facility faces closure.

Listen as Mark deals with each of these important developments one at a time.

First: On Wednesday, the Heartbeat Bill passed the Ohio Senate by a vote of 19-13 and now the bill heads over to the House of Representatives.

The difference between now and the past is Ohio has a governor who has pledged to sign the bill.

Second: Ohio Democrats and abortion groups refused to condemn infanticide.

The issue of Democrat support for post-birth abortions continues to have legs.  This week, an Ohio Senate heard a resolution supporting the effort by the US Senate to pass the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.  In committee, none of the Democrats voted for the resolution. In fact, freshman Senator Tina Maharath (D) was roundly rebuked by Chairman Dave Burke (R) for daring to say the committee had more important issues to spend their time on. He said, “it is absurd that a child would be left on a table after birth.”

NARAL’s deputy director Jaime Miracle was chided by Sen. Peggy Lehner for changing the subject of the infanticide debate from the babies who survive an abortion attempt to violence towards abortion providers.

Interestingly, foreseeing political peril ahead, when the measure was brought to full Senate, Democrats voted for the resolution.

Third: abortionist Martin Haskell’s late-term abortion facility got a hearing on revocation of his license.

Abortionist Martin Haskell has nine lives. That’s more than I can say for the thousands of babies he has butchered over the decades.  Thankfully, Haskell’s killing machine is running out of legal options. We anticipate his killing center will finally be shuttered. Created Equal has played a part in this outcome.

Watch and listen to Mark discuss these issues and provide practical direction for every American who loves life.

Making Your Case Persuasively | The Mark Harrington Show | 3-8-19

After spending a few days at the Ohio State House recently listening to abortion advocates defend preborn child-killing, I was nauseated. But what may have been worse was witnessing the inability of pro-life legislators to refute their sloppy arguments.

But the real question is, if Christians don’t know how to make a compelling case for preborn how can we expect our legislators to?

This is what you will learn to do on this episode of The Mark Harrington Show.

  • Simplify the abortion issue for those who think it’s complex.
  • Defend the pro-life view scientifically and philosophically.
  • Refute common objections to the pro-life view.

The Left’s Rush to Infanticide | The Mark Harrington Show | 2-29-19

With the recent vote of 44 Senate Democrats (including 6 presidential candidates) refusing to protect born children from murder, the nation has once again been confronted by the overt barbarism of abortion advocates. The debate is no longer about a woman’s right to choose but rather the right of a woman to have a dead baby as a result even if the baby has been born.

This is a now a debate over infanticide.

To defend themselves, Democrats say babies are never born alive as a result of a failed abortion. Living examples like Melissa Ohden and Gianna Jessen beg to differ.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), nationwide, between 2003 and 2014 at least 143 babies died after being born alive during botched abortions – and the CDC states this could be an underestimation. In 2018, 16 infants in Florida alone were born alive after surviving abortion attempts.

As a result of the brazen support by abortion advocates of up-until-birth and post-birth abortions, Americans are changing their view on all abortions.

Last month, Marist released its annual abortion survey, which found that just 38% of Americans considered themselves “pro-life” versus 55% “pro-choice,” with an additional 7% unsure. Forty eight percent of Americans said they would either completely ban abortions or limit them to cases of rape, incest, or to save a mother’s life; the rest of the findings indicated overwhelming majority support for restricting abortion much more than it is today.

A new Marist poll shows 80% of Americans want to limit abortion to the first three months of pregnancy but Democrats can’t even find consensus to limit abortion after a child is born. Also, Marist now finds the “pro-life” and “pro-choice” labels tied at 47% with 6% unsure, and a combined 58% of Americans who would ban all or most abortions. Only 21% of Americans would allow elective abortions past the first trimester, down from 24%.

When pro-lifers take this issue to the people, Democrats’ obsession with killing babies will kill their chances at the ballot box and help to ensure the re-election of President Donald Trump.

Watch and listen to Mark discuss these issues and provide practical direction for every American who loves life.

Ending Abortion: Prudence v. All or Nothing | The Mark Harrington Show | 2-21-19

Ending Abortion: Prudence v. All or Nothing | The Mark Harrington Show | 2-21-19

February 21, 2019

As the Ohio Heartbeat Bill receives another round of hearings in the Ohio legislature, some discussion of political tactics has re-emerged. 

After what happened in the lame duck session, when Ohio lawmakers came one vote away from overriding then Gov. John Kasich’s veto, we know there are more than likely enough votes to pass the Heartbeat Bill. Now, Ohio has a governor who will sign the bill and it could be put into law sometime very soon.

Of course, there is the typical opposition from abortion supporters. Oddly, in past years the bill was opposed by Ohio Right to Life. But this time around, opposition isn’t coming from Ohio Right to Life (who now supports the bill).  In the past, some incrementalists opposed the bill because it went too far. This time some pro-life advocates are opposing the legislation because it doesn’t go far enough.

Aided by an interview with former State Representative Christian Hagan, Mark tackles this difficult topic by comparing both views.

With the changing composition of the Supreme Court, and the uncertain status of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, there could soon be enough justices to overturn Roe v Wade, which would return the abortion issue back where it belongs to the state legislatures. This is another reason why we need to understand the best way forward.

Are the Preborn Our Neighbors? - The Mark Harrington Show | 2-15-19

 

And wishing to justify himself, the lawyer said to Jesus, “who is my neighbor?” Lk. 10: 29

Because loving God and loving our neighbor is the sum of the commandments, the Good Samaritan parable has application to the contemporary beating victim - the preborn.  Find out if you are a Priest/Levite or a Samaritan when it comes to defending the preborn.

 

Listen to Mark Harrington lay out a basic biblical foundation for why we need to defend and speak up for the preborn.

Trump Just Won Re-Election | The Mark Harrington Show | 2.7.2019

February 7, 2019

At the State of Union Address, pro-infanticide democrats dressed up in abortionists’ lab coats to show their support for executing born children. Juxtaposed that stark imagery against the strong words used by President Trump condemning the governors of Virginia and New York for their extremist abortion views, and you had an evening full of high drama and showmanship.

Add to the mix the continued absence of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the stage is set for a showdown of epic proportions that will ultimately re-elect Trump in 2020.

As abortion/infanticide supporters continue to double down on their extremism, moderate and independent voters will be left with no other options but to sit it out or vote for Trump in 2020.

Listen to Mark unpack the state of the pro-life movement in the run up to 2020 and what we need to do to finally win legal protection for the preborn.

Born Alive Abortions: The New Barbarism | The Mark Harrington Show | 2.2.19

Born Alive Abortions: The New Barbarism | The Mark Harrington Show | 2.2.19

January 31, 2019

In New York, the focal point of the new abortion law is that it codified Roe v Wade into state law. Abortion is legal for any reason before “viability.” It is also legal after viability if the baby has a disability or if the purpose of the abortion is to preserve the mental or physical “health” of the mother. “Health” could mean anything. The mother could say she’s stressed out at the thought of being a parent and that could qualify for the mental health exception. The law also legalizes abortions performed by non-doctors such as nurses and nurse practitioners. Since the passing of the New York bill, the same legislation has been introduced in Vermont and Virginia. Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo also asked the Rhode Island legislator to send her the same bill. This is all on top of the six other states (Alaska, Colorado, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, and Oregon) that already have no limit on abortion.

Most notably, Virginia delegate Kathy Tran, while being questioned by delegate Todd Gilbert, admitted that the bill, of which she was a primary sponsor, would allow doctors to murder a baby at 40 weeks as the mother is going into labor. Virginia Governor Ralph Northam defended Tran on Wednesday while on WTOP radio. He makes clear that the bill would allow physicians and families to murder babies by neglect even after the baby is born. “If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered, the infant would be kept comfortable, the infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired; and then a discussion would ensue between the physician and the mother.”

Abortion supporters are now out in the open in support of infanticide and abortion during labor and delivery. Tune into The Mark Harrington Show to sift through the implications of the “new normal” for abortion advocates.

Routinely the March for Life is underreported but this year was different. What some Catholic High School students did after the 2019 March for Life garnered national media attention. Why because they dared to smile at a protester who was being provocative.

Listen to The Mark Harrington Show to find out how we can respond to these blatant attempts to destroy efforts of God fearing Americans to express ourselves in the public square.

Making Abortion History in Ohio and Beyond | Mark Harrington Show | 1.7.2019

Making Abortion History in Ohio and Beyond | Mark Harrington Show | 1.7.2019

January 7, 2019

Many remember that the original Heartbeat Bill which was introduced in 2011, came literally a heartbeat away from becoming Ohio law.  If it weren’t for the actions of one particular Senator, babies with beating hearts would be protected right now and we would have no need to be here.

Since that time the Heartbeat Bill has been votoed twice by Ohio Governor John Kasich.  With incoming Governor Mike DeWine committing to sign the bill if passed, we now are on the verge of making abortion history in Ohio.

In light of that, let me say, we are not naïve.  We know the odds.  And we know the arguments against this bill:

  • Some say that the Heartbeat Bill might be found unconstitutional based on their assessment of the current makeup of the Supreme Court.  No one can predict the future with that degree of certainty.  Babies with beating hearts don’t care much about the opinions of pessimistic lawyers.  They have waited 40 years for justice.  That is long enough!
  • Some will ask, “Do you have any assurances that the Heartbeat Bill won’t meet the same fate it did the last time we tried to pass it?”  To that I say, in politics, nothing is certain.  But one thing is certain, we will persevere.

The best picture of perseverance is the political life of one of our most beloved presidents, Abraham Lincoln.

Abe Lincoln lost six elections over a span of thirty two years before he won the presidency.  And thank God he persevered.  I am not comparing the candidacy of Abe Lincoln to the effort for the Heartbeat Bill but Lincoln won the presidency because he kept trying. 

2019 could be the year we end legal abortion in Ohio. Stay tuned as we fight to protect all children.
