human embryo 620x300The Left is a little confused over what constitutes a refugee and what it means to extend their concerns to the least of these.

As part of President Trump's attempt to create an atmosphere of safety for the U.S., the situation concerning refugees who are trying to gain admittance to the country is being addressed. As a result, left-wing groups have initiated riots and destruction of property.

Brian Fisher of Human Coalition points out to OneNewsNow that a high number of those participating in the riots support abortion. He explains that while many of them want to extend full rights of citizenship to people who aren't U.S. citizens, the preborn in the womb have no rights.

For example, many marching in the women's marches and protesting at airports are pro-abortion and are, therefore, according to Fisher, exercising discrimination and selective equality.

Refugees may be seeking entry to America and asylum because of religious and political persecution, and some because they fear for their lives. So in that sense, according to Fisher, babies in the womb are refugees.

"They are seeking asylum; they are seeking safety," he says. "And so, I would think a preborn child is very akin to a refugee. They are simply trying to escape the persecution of an abortion-driven culture."

Consequently, Fisher concludes, Americans who "clamor" for the rights of foreign refugees can't be taken seriously. It's "nonsensical [and] hypocritical," he says, to argue for the rescue and protection of one group of human beings who are vulnerable while "passionately arguing for the death of another vulnerable group."
