The nation is in turmoil as a treacherous individual, intending to sabotage the confidentiality of the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS), leaked a draft opinion from Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito. Yes, the infamous Roe v Wade SCOTUS decision from 1973 that has resulted in 70 million aborted babies may soon be overturned, God willing.
Our elected leaders have not been shy about what side they are on. President Biden stated: "a woman’s right to choose is fundamental". Vice President Harris said while speaking to Planned Parenthood’s Emily’s List gathering: "If the court overturns Roe v. Wade, it will be a direct assault on freedom.” Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader, Chuck Schumer, issued a joint statement: "The Republican-appointed justices’ reported votes to overturn Roe v. Wade would go down as an abomination, one of the worst and most damaging decisions in modern history." Right here in Arizona, Secretary of State and Gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs vulgarly said: “F*** the patriarchy, If you agree, helps us defend the right to choose in Arizona.” Tucson Mayor Regina Romero tweeted “Access to abortion is a HUMAN RIGHT”.
The 1992 Casey decision, Planned Parenthood v Supreme Court, allowed states to protect viable fetuses, at that time considered 26 weeks of pregnancy. Since then, younger babies have survived below that number. Even if Roe v Wade is overturned, there will still be abortions based on state law. Right now every state has its own laws that regulate abortion. The Mississippi case that has prompted this anticipated SCOTUS ruling limits abortion to 15 week gestation. Arizona’s newly enacted SB 1164 mirrors Mississippi’s law
Have many of our leaders lost their fear of the Lord? Is the ability to have an abortion at any time, for any reason, an inalienable right aligned with God’s will and desire?
Matthew 25:31-46 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with Him, He will sit on His glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on His right and the goats on His left”.
Regardless of how SCOTUS rules or what states adopt stricter or no rules at all on abortion, where do we stand as biblical citizens? Are we going to continue to vote for people who have no regard for human life?
