The evil of abortion

“Mr. Chief Justice, and may it please the Court, Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey haunt our country. They have no basis in the Constitution. They have no home in our history or traditions. They've damaged the democratic process. They poison the law. They've choked off compromise. For 50 years, they've kept this court at the center of a political battle that it can never resolve. And 50 years on, they stand alone. Nowhere else does this court recognize a right to end a human life.” Said Scott G. Stewart, the Solicitor General of Mississippi, in his opening comments to the Supreme Court of the United States on the 1st of December, 2021.

I want to direct us to Albert Mohler’s, The Briefing, of 12/02/2021 where he offered an overview of the abortion movement in the United States, and where it stands today. And how nobody, it seemed, past or present, offered Constitutional support for an individual’s right to kill people who are vulnerable. Roe and Casey were both made up out of whole cloth, and they were wrongly decided, and poorly decided at that, and sure as hell presents as politically motivated.

The only support offered this past Wednesday for a mother to kill her own baby now is that we’ve been doing it for 50-years, so we can’t correct that mistake. Nevermind the unborn people, nevermind the adults who vote, and nevermind the law of the land. That is the current pro-abortion argument. Seriously.

All of that in light of how the Biden administration is now including lack of access to unrestricted abortion as an undesirable component in how it ranks various governments throughout the world. Yet even still, most European governments restrict access to abortion after the 12th week of pregnancy – the Mississippi law, which restricts access to abortion-on-demand after 15-weeks of gestation is somehow considered regressive, even though it is even more ‘progressive’ than most European secularist’s morality.

I learned from Dr. Ryan Anderson, who was quoting Mary Eberstadt on the BreakPoint podcast today, that feminism veered hard left since Roe 50-years ago, and further since Casey 30-years ago. Feminism, in its first wave, was pushing for women to be recognized as valuable as female, whereas this third wave of feminism (fourth?) only recognizes women as valuable if they are man-like.

This bastardized version of ‘feminism’ will always fail, because if women are to be men, the past 50-years has highlighted that atrocity; the last ten-years most notably. Men are ‘better’ at being women than women are, as they win beauty contests and sporting events, in the name of gender equality. There’s even a pregnant man emoji in play, which makes zero sense, except to help further the acceptance of a neutered world.

Abortion is an attack on the unborn clearly, yet it is also an attack on women. May it be corrected quickly. And may life, as God designed it to be, be granted to everyone. As it states in the Declaration of Independence, understood to be the foundation upon which the Constitution was written, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
