Vicara is making the argument that because everyone is now required to have health insurance during the Affordable Care Act and that some of these insurers cover abortion that means the government is funding abortions now. Something of a stretch, at best.
The pro-life movement cannot save unborn lives by employing couch-potato Christianity when it comes to the governments abusive, and in some cases, deadly public policies. Remember that it is not only ethically decent to oppose abortion, but a Biblical duty to act on behalf of the helpless. Proverbs 31:8 instructs, “Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute.”
When it comes to choosing between obeying God’s commandments and adhering to Caesar’s policies, every convictional Christian must recognize its time to practice what we preach. As followers of Christ we know that Biblical truths and principles transform and save lives. So why keep God’s truths to ourselves, closeted in our chapels? Why keep His truths out of government?
Convictional Christians cannot “stay out of the government’s business” because the role of government affects each one of our lives. So as our nation moves beyond legalizing abortion to collectively paying for it, it’s time for Christian citizens to ditch their couch-potato mindset. The murder of helpless unborn babies is always our business.
