The Wisdom of Ronald Reagan on the Sanctity of Life
27 Jun 2022
PRESIDENT REAGAN: I think all of us should have a respect for innocent life. With regard to the freedom of the individual for choice with regard to abortion, there’s one individual (chuckles) who’s not being considered at all. That’s the one who’s being aborted, and I’ve noticed that everybody that is for abortion has already been born. … And yet our opponents tell us not to interfere with abortion, they tell us not to “impose our morality” on those who wish to allow or to participate in the taking of the life of infants before birth. Yet no one calls it “imposing morality” to prohibit the taking of life after a child is born. We’re told about a woman’s right to control her own body, but doesn’t the unborn child have a higher right — and that is to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?
BUCK: Words of Ronald Reagan there sounding like things we need to hear now. Welcome back to Clay and Buck. Look, it was a good weekend for America. A lot of people are really upset but they’re wrong. Overall, this is something that should be celebrated, and everybody should feel good. There is a new day here, a dawning that is occurring in the country — or dawn is occurring — and we are approaching an election that will allow the American people to really speak, Clay, for the first time on the true results of lockdowns and vaccine mandates.
The massive spending, the effective Modern Monetary Theory lunacy of the Democrats in the Biden administration. This is the way this system is actually supposed to work, and it took a long time to get rid of one of the worst Supreme Court decisions of all time, but finally that has happened, and so people should feel good about things. All is not lost. We are moving in the right direction. The correction is happening right now, and we just have to stay focused and stay on it.
DON JR.: It’s not meant as a call just to Donald Trump. It’s meant as a call to anyone who would question, you know, the authority of so many of these unelected officials.
CLAY: Forcing people who were dying in the hospital to not be able to speak with their family members is, to me, a crime against humanity.
BUCK: The CDC failed in a way that it should be torn down to the studs, all of its leadership should be fired, it should be renamed something else.
CLAY: Wasn't it only, like, six weeks ago that Trump had supposedly grabbed the steering wheel?
BUCK: I say we take the people seriously who have been right all along instead of the people who have been wrong like Ashish Jha.
