Christian Pro-Life Activist Opposes ‘Secular’ Government (Video)
Ginni Thomas, wife of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, recently interviewed Christian pro-life activist Lila Rose.
Rose lamented the lack of role of religion in the U.S. government during Thomas' Daily Caller Internet program (video below).
“When history books are written about this culture, what are they going to see, and how do we stop the erosion?” asked Thomas, noted RightWingWatch.org.
“I believe they will say is that we wandered from our founding principles, but we came right back and we embraced them more boldly than ever before,” said Rose.
"This idea that the government is secular and we have our faith over here, no, secular is somehow saying there’s no God, there’s no higher power, there’s no higher law,” added Rose.
“You can’t say that because then when you have a tyrant in power, which you often, sadly, do, and I believe there’s aspects of tyranny in who you have in power now, then whole groups of people, their rights are not respected, their rights are not protected and you have human rights abuses,” claimed Rose.
In reality, human rights abuses have occurred throughout history under secular and religious governments that allowed no democracy and were ruled by decree.
Later in the interview, Rose falsely claimed that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger wanted to use birth control and abortion to "achieve her eugenics vision."
In reality, Sanger opposed elective abortion. In her 1938 autobiography, she wrote, "[In 1916] we explained what contraception was; that abortion was the wrong way no matter how early it was performed it was taking life; that contraception was the better way, the safer way—it took a little time, a little trouble, but was well worth while in the long run, because life had not yet begun."
Sanger supported negative eugenics, as did many in her day, to prevent genetic defects from being continually passed down through generations. She never advocated euthanasia, but supported birth control.
