If God created a human life, It's not up to us to determine if it should live or die.

If God created a human life, It's not up to us to determine if it should live or die. That's my opinion, FWIW. "Lower" forms of life, sure...but not a human being.
Matthews asked him, "If abortions were made illegal, would the woman be punished?"
So to get back to unpacking the premise, if you are allowing abortion for even medical necessity which we would be, then Matthews' premise becomes an absurd hypothetical, which it is.
Faithful to the "self-evident" truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed. We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and endorse legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment's protections apply to unborn children.
We must keep our pledge to the first guarantee of the Declaration of Independence. That is why we say the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed. We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and we endorse legislation to make it clear that the 14th Amendment’s protections apply to unborn children. Our purpose is to have legislative and judicial protection of that right against those who perform abortions.
actually, I don't think donald brought it up

Not kidding. There is no way any sitting POTUS could make abortion illegal. This is nothing but a 'hot button' topic. It is about the correct time in the primary race for it to pop up. I am sure that LGBT rights will be pushed next. Another non POTUS issue.
No one in the media wants to talk issues. That is boring. It is all about creating the headline.
Abortion plain and simple should not be an election talking point.

IF the GOP has its way, and they add this "unborn personhood" Constitutional Amendment, SCOTUS and Roe V Wade will be irrelevant.

Ted Cruz will get the vote of the people that genuinely believe abortion is wrong because of their religion
Trump will get the vote of men who just want to control women
