Every week, liberals seem to find some new way to attack pro-life candidates and their families. This week, Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi, appears to be the target.

Heidi Cruz is facing criticism for saying that the United States was built on Judaeo-Christian values during the radio show Right Wing Watch. Her comments about Christian principles and right and wrong angered several liberal commentators.

She said:

We are at a cultural crossroads in our country, and if we can be in this race to show this country the face of the God that we serve — this Christian God that we serve is the foundation of our country, our country was built on Judeo-Christian values, we are a nation of freedom of religion, but the God of Christianity is the God of freedom, of individual liberty, of choice and of consequence.

I think that’s something that this country really needs to be reminded of, is that Christians are loving people, are nonjudgmental people, but there is right and wrong, we have a country of law and order, there are consequences to actions and we must all live peaceably in our own faiths under the Constitution. And Ted is uniquely able to deliver on that combination of the law and religion.

National Review reports that Cruz faced backlash from Ken Meyer at Mediate, who called Cruz’s statements a bizarre rant. Former Obama campaign employee John Green also attacked Cruz, saying her husband, Ted, wants to tear down the wall between the separation of church and state.

But Heidi Cruz is right. Many Christians today do see the United States at a crossroads of religious liberty, as the government attempts to force nuns and churches and businesses to violate their consciences by paying for abortions.

And choices do come with consequences. Though abortion activists would have society believe otherwise, the legal “choice” of abortion has severely damaged not only the lives of more than 57 million unborn babies and their mothers, but also society as a whole.

Though Cruz did not mention abortion in the interview, an individual close to her said she and her husband share strong pro-life values.
