It is time.
In fact, it’s way past time.
For nearly a half-century, abortion on demand has been legal in all fifty states leading to the tragic holocaust of over 60 million innocent babies.
It is time to right an historically devastating and evil wrong and overturn the fatally flawed Roe decision from 1973.
I’m in Washington, D.C., and will be closely following today’s hearing of the Mississippi Dobbs case inside the Supreme Court. Due to the pandemic, the courtroom will be closed to spectators, but the audio of the proceedings will be available in real time. I hope you will listen. We all must pray.
The wickedness of 1973’s 7-2 decision is impossible to overstate. It joins the High Court’s horrific Dred Scott ruling, which deemed African-Americans as less than whole people, as the most consequential and depraved of all judicial cases.
Think about it – seven unelected men on that cold January day sentenced over 63 million children to death. Generations of boys and girls lost forever this side of eternity.
There is no middle ground when it comes to this issue. Today’s hearing is a matter of life and death – literally.
In the hours following the Burger court’s 1973 ruling, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) declared, “We trust that this is the beginning of the end for state efforts to interfere with the rights of women to secure medical abortions.”
It’s taken nearly fifty years, but it now should be the beginning of the end of restricting state efforts to protect innocent human life.
As Christians, we must continue praying for justice and that a majority of justices will have the courage to do the right thing.
It is time for Roe to go. It is time for Roe to be relegated to the dust heap of history. It is time to uphold Mississippi’s law that protects innocent life.
