April 8, 2015 By: Jon Schweppe

Wow. Senator Rand Paul just gave the best answer on abortion I’ve ever seen—a complete home run.

Pro-abortionists love to force pro-life candidates to be very specific on abortion, and the media is often their willing accomplice. The media will happily force pro-life candidates to explain which exceptions they support, which they don’t, and generally just flummox them into eventually giving up on defending their position altogether outside of a vague declaration of being pro-life. After all, when you’re explaining, you’re losing.

This has been a frustrating trend to watch. Republicans have generally avoided the issue altogether, while Democrats continue to radicalize and become bolder in their pro-abortion ideology.

Abortion isn’t an issue on which conservatives need to be playing defense. Instead, we should be going on the attack and forcing liberals defend their radical views of supporting abortion without exception from the moment of conception to the moment of birth.

Enter Rand Paul.

Moving Testimony of Donor-Conceived Child Raised by Two Lesbian Moms

Ryan Anderson was speaking in Australia when he pulled out a surprise guest speaker, 23-year-old Millie Fontana, who spoke for many other children raised without fathers, who are silenced or told they are homophobic for noticing what they have lost:

I am a donor-conceived child of lesbian parents. I stand here with the support of all three of my parents. This is a testimony that it is, safe to say, unheard of because nobody wants to hear about the other side of the rainbow. . .

Growing up, I wanted a father.

I felt it within me that I was missing a father before I could even articulate what a father was. I knew that I loved both of my parents, but I could not place my finger on what it is I was missing inside myself. . .I was lied to throughout school; I was told I didn’t have a father. . .it was very difficult for me to affirm a stable identity because of this. And my behavioral and emotional stability suffered greatly because of it.

I stand here before you raised atheist, with no religious affiliations.

I stand with Christians because so far in this debate, Christians are the only people trying to reflect the issues that follow with children.  Christians so far are the only people trying to shine light on stories like mine.

Nobody in the LGBT lobby wants to hear from someone like me. Because so far ‘love is love’ right?  We don’t exist.
