From approximately 96 to 581 AD, Rome was the most powerful empire. They invaded other countries and took what they wanted. The power the military carried was unmatched. The Roman culture at that time was abhorrent. Slavery abounded, gladiators killed lower class citizens for entertainment in the Coliseum, and children born were not always approved to live. Eventually, the empire collapsed. Is the Democratic Party’s staunch glee for the killing of the unborn up to the point of birth going to be their downfall?
When children were born in ancient Rome, there was no guarantee they were going to live. I am not referring to the lack of hospitals and absence of modern-day medicine that helps a child who is born prematurely or with a congenital disability. It was not uncommon for murdering a newly born child as a method for birth control. Sound familiar? Let me remind you. Remember what Democratic Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, who is still in office after his blackface scandal earlier this year, said? You may not because the liberal media suppressed what he said about newborn children in relation to abortion.
In an interview on WTOP, a Washington D.C. radio station, Northam said, “So in this particular example 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 physicians and the mother.” The “discussion” refers to ending the baby’s life or not, even though it had been born — another radical step to the left.
As mentioned earlier, Roman parents would kill the child as a form of birth control. What Northam said is no different than what the evil Roman empire would do to newly-born children. If they did not want the child, a slave was forced to take a baby out to a specific part of the city and leave it there to die of exposure. This was an inhumane common practice, and Democrats have no problem adopting the form of birth control.
The Roman government did not consider leaving a baby to die after exposure to a crime. At the time, newborn infants were not considered “fully human.” This draws a sharp comparison to Northam and a law recently passed in New York state where a baby can be aborted up to the point of birth. They justify these laws by using twisted reasoning to say that an unborn child is not a human being.
This week Illinois passed a law similar to New York's. These laws do not respect the sanctity of human life. They are acts of evil in a veil of “healthcare and reproductive rights,” which is ironic since reproduction requires the act of creating life, not ending it.
There have been mass graves located in Rome that were littered with confirmed baby bones. These have been found under bathhouses. I cannot help but think about infanticide abortionist “doctor” Kermit Gosnell. Back in 2010, the FBI raided the abortion clinic and found a house of horror. Gosnell had stored deceased baby parts in jars as trophies, and cats were walking around the office. He is another pro-abortionist that can be compared with the atrocities of ancient Rome.
A common theme noticed between the Democratic Party and evil ancient Rome is moral relativism. They downplay the existence of life or humanity. Rome operated in a zone that did not consider newborn babies fully human. Democrats refuse to acknowledge that a heartbeat is a sign of a living human being if it comes from the womb of a pregnant woman, and they reduce an unborn child down to a “clump of cells,” much like Rome did with newborns.
Rome was an evil empire. They had no respect for humans, murdered for entertainment, and did not allow those in the lower tier of society any opportunity to succeed.
The Democratic Party is no different. They refuse to value unborn babies. The left pushes abortions. Look at Chelsea Handler, who brags about her multiple infanticidal activities. Moreover, they want to punish rich people and bring a state of unreachable “equality,” which means Democrats have the money and power, and everyone else is equally poverty-stricken. All for the sake of votes and power.
Perhaps one of the most disturbing elements to all of this is that the left does this for power. They have no shame. Now, they are openly evil which hopefully will reveal to voters the dangers of Democrats.
It took hundreds of years for Rome to build and then burn. We can only hope that the Democratic Party burns down sooner than the Roman Empire. Otherwise, America is on a crash course for destruction, and unborn children are the most threatened.
Hopefully, the Democratic Party disappears before America.
