Tucker Carlson: Abortion Not ‘Political Debate’ but a ‘Spiritual Battle’
Tucker Carlson called out the Left’s relentless push to end the lives of the unborn in a recent address to Christians, contending that the issue of abortion is not a “political debate” but a “spiritual battle.”
The Center for Christian Virtue hosted Tucker Carlson for its gala in Cleveland, Ohio, on September 21. During his speech, Carlson pointed to two ballot initiatives Ohioans will be voting on in November, including a radical abortion measure that could allow the procedure through all nine months of pregnancy, and a measure allowing anyone 21 years old and above to buy and possess marijuana.
“I’m really struck by the ballot initiatives your voters will be facing in November. And I’m struck because they are so very different from the politics that I covered for the bulk of my life. I’m 54. I’ve been covering this stuff since I was 22,” Carlson said.

“For most of that time, the debates we had in the political sphere were over competing visions for how to improve people’s lives … Both sides were at least pretending to try to improve the lives of the people that voted for them,” he continued. “But when you wind up in an election where the two top ballot initiatives, are one, encouraging people to kill their own kids, and two, encouraging their kids to do drugs — who’s benefiting here?”
Carlson added that anyone telling Americans to abort their babies are the “enemy” and that “the one unalloyed source of joy in your life is your children.”
“The point of life is to have children and to watch them have grandchildren,” he said. “Nothing will bring you joy like that will. Nothing comes close. Would you trade your job for your children? Would you trade anything for your children? Of course not.”

Abortion is ultimately a “religious rite” as “old as time,” Carlson continued.
“It’s chronicled in great detail throughout the Hebrew Bible. It’s human sacrifice, which rears its head about every four chapters … Of all the sins the ancients committed … every single time it is described it is called detestable,” he said.
