Yesterday’s Supreme Court decision that upheld Indiana’s fetal remains law – legislation that requires burial or cremation of a baby’s body following an abortion – was welcome news regarding a very uncomfortable topic, of course.
It’s hard to even fathom why anyone would oppose these types of standards, but Planned Parenthood’s wicked and evil opposition to anything that hints at the rights and respect due pre-born life shouldn’t shock us anymore.
At the same time, there was disappointing news within the same decision.
The nine justices declined to consider the constitutionality of the Hoosier state’s law that bans abortion based on sex, race or disability.
That portion of the Indiana law isn’t in effect since an appeals court blocked its implementation.
Court watchers are suggesting the nine justices basically punted on the issue and are waiting for other courts to weigh in first. While not atypical for the High Court, it’s still unfortunate.
Delays equate to more lives lost – a tragedy of unspeakable proportion.
In a refreshingly candid response to the issue, Justice Clarence Thomas suggested that advocates for abortion and those opposing Indiana’s law are using it as “a tool of modern-day eugenics.”
“The court will soon need to confront the constitutionality of laws like Indiana’s,” he wrote. “Enshrining a constitutional right to an abortion based solely on the race, sex or disability of an unborn child, as Planned Parenthood advocates, would constitutionalize the views of the 20th-century eugenics movement.”
Justice Thomas is exactly right.
The founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, spoke openly about her organization’s support of eugenics. She advocated for the compulsory segregation or sterilization of the “unfit.”
Sanger believed the public welfare system and those who were in it should be eliminated. She advocated eliminating the “unfit” before they were born to avoid their becoming a burden on society.
Shockingly, the most ardent abortion supporters deny any negative impact on the African-American community. The troubling statistics tell a very different tale:
• Black women account for roughly seven percent of the U.S. population but nearly 35 percent of all abortions.
• More black babies are aborted in New York City each year than are born.
I applaud Justice Thomas’s willingness to speak the truth.
As the longest-serving member of the court, he remains one of pre-born infants’ greatest champions. Please take time to pray for him – and that the scales that blind these pro-abortion justices might one day soon fall from their eyes as the magnitude of the truth washes over them.
The tide on life is turning. When the Washington Post actually disputes Planned Parenthood’s claim that thousands of women died each year of botched abortions prior to 1973, you know the Left is scrambling to try and defend the idefensible. Every loss of life is tragic, but the Post pointed out that statistics suggest fewer than 300 women died each prior to the tragic ruling.
