Why Tucker Carlson is Pro-Life…It’s Personal

Why Tucker Carlson is Pro-Life…It’s Personal

The Long Slide: Thirty Years in American Journalism, by Tucker Carlson (Threshold Editions: 2021), 288 pages.

The host of Tucker Carlson Tonight has a new book featuring a collection of magazine articles written over the last 30 years with new commentary and reflections on how the revolutions in technology and culture have impacted journalism. The stories range from his 2003 trip to Africa with Al Sharpton to a job before his rise to fame at a baked beans factory.

For those who rightly view abortion as the most important human rights issue of our time, you will find some compelling background on Carlson’s prolife convictions. 

In a 1996 Weekly Standard essay on “Eugenics, American Style,” Carlson explores the gruesome world of Eugenic abortion.  He shares how abortion is being used to wipe out children considered imperfect by their parents.  This is especially shocking when you look at the numbers of children with Down syndrome who are aborted. 

This issue of eugenic abortion is a deeply personal one for Carlson.

Jonathon Van Maren is an author and pro-life activist.  Van Maren shares of a talk he heard Carlson share at a pro-life event:

“… Carlson told a pro-life audience a few years back that the abortion issue is deeply personal for him—first, because his father Richard was born in 1941 in Boston to a 15-year-old girl and sent to an orphanage. If this had happened after 1973, he noted, “I wouldn’t be here.” There was also the time a doctor told Carlson and his wife that their second child (of four)—now a healthy, strapping son—likely had Spina Bifida. As doctors so often do, he offered them the eugenic option and suggested they procure an abortion. “My wife responded with a very bad word,” Carlson recalled. “The very bad word, to indicate that no way this was happening.” Susan Carlson informed the doctor in no uncertain terms that “you’re not allowed to kill that child. You know why? Because you’re not God.”

“Playing God” is a sin that has its foundation in the Old Testament stories of the primordial Garden, when the lying serpent planted the seeds of pride-infested idolatry into the hearts of humanity.   

We are living through the latest manifestation of that temptation, evident in the U.S. tax-payer funded “gain of function” research, where irresponsible scientists and government officials enhanced a naturally occurring coronavirus, to become a lethal agent attacking the respiratory tract of humans.   

The same NIH headed by Anthony Fauci, that likely funded the gain of function coronavirus experiments, is also funding research using born-alive aborted babies at the University of Pittsburgh. Lifesite reports how the University is a major hub for the trafficking of, and experimentation on, aborted baby organs and body parts.  

A video by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) was released in conjunction with CMP founder David Daleiden’s testimony in May 2021 before Pennsylvania’s House of Representatives.  The graphic video reveals a Liver being harvested from a premature baby, aborted alive via ‘labor induction,’ still attached to his / her umbilical cord.

Don’t expect remorse, repentance and reparation from those responsible for the “gain of function” virus enhancement and born-alive baby experiments.  Expect more cover-ups and lies.  The longer you live the lie, the more it becomes embedded in your nature. 

As Jesus proclaimed:

“You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” (John 8:44)

As members of Christ’s Church, and tax-paying citizens of this still great republic now under siege, we must aggressively petition our government officials and politicians to end this horrific practice.
