50 Years Later

     So much has changed in the last 50 years in the USA. Since abortion was legalized in the United States in 1973 through a Supreme Court ruling we have witnessed the crumbling of a culture. 


      It is no understatement to say that our entire nation hangs in the balance with our decision to decide the value of a single human life. Does an unborn child deserve the right to life? 


Is that unborn child worth the dignity we grant to other people? 
Is the baby in the womb a human being?

 

The answer to those questions will change everything about America.

If the Supreme Court is able to withstand the media and the progressive onslaught against them we may be about to witness the overturning of Roe v. Wade.


The answer to that question is only a few days away.

 

My first thought is that Roe v. Wade should be overturned simply because it is bad law. The Supreme Court justices in 1973 made up a right in the constitution that never existed. It’s simply a bad decision and my  second thought is (this is probably the biggest) this case strips away human rights from an entire class of people. 


The unborn. 

 

If you can take humanity from the unborn then which class of people will be next? 

 

Either all life is valuable or none of us are.

 

If the Supreme Court stands its ground and overturns this bad law, that’s not the end of the battle. The battle to protect the rights of the unborn will then move to all 50 states. But it will be a significant victory 50 years in the making.

 

     Our collective culture has degraded to the point where women publicly celebrate their abortions and politicians fight to legalize abortion up to and including the ninth month. It’s hard to imagine that adults can find the words to justify killing a baby that is full-term and ready for delivery but that’s where we are. 

 

God have mercy on our souls and our country.

 

49 Democratic senators voted this past week to legalize the murder of an unborn child that is fully developed. 50 Republicans and one Democrat voted against it in the Senate. The bill failed 51 to 49. But that failure tells us a story of where we stand as a nation. 


It seems we have forgotten that every human has value and worth because they were created in the image of God. 

The church must always stand for life, from the moment of conception to the end of natural life.

 

Unborn children are human beings worthy of life.
