Will Roe go? The leak at the edge of history

 By Daniel Darling - Posted at Baptist Press:

FORT WORTH, Texas (BP) – Last night, an unprecedented leak of the first draft of a Supreme Court decision was leaked to Politico, signaling that the Supreme Court, 49 years later, is poised to repeal Roe v. Wade. If this draft, and the at least five votes voting to allow the states to regulate and ban abortion holds, then we are witnessing history on two levels.

First, the leak of a draft decision by the Court is an unprecedented assault on this sacred institution of American life. According to Politico, “No draft decision in the modern history of the court has been disclosed publicly while a case was still pending.” We can’t be sure, but it seems this document was leaked to put maximum pressure on the justices set to strike down Roe. This leak will create enormous pressure on the justices. They will be harassed from every side: in their social circles, by some in the media, who will likely look for incriminating details in their personal lives by which to blackmail them to change their votes, and by desperate liberals, for whom abortion rights are sacrosanct. We should earnestly pray that the justices have the courage to not yield to the inevitable mobs, but hold their votes to strike down one of the most egregious Supreme Court decisions in U.S. history.

If this leaked draft is reflective of the final decision, Justice Alito makes a compelling case that abortion is not a right intended by the framers of the constitution and not a liberty embedded in our national tradition.

Christians approach this from a standpoint of human dignity, that the baby in the womb is not an inconvenience, but a human being at the moment of conception, worthy of the life. King David so eloquently declared that in his mother’s womb, he was knit with care by the Creator (Psalm 139). But even those who don’t share our faith are having a hard time looking away, as science continues to reveal to us what we already instinctively know: the most defenseless ones in our society are not clumps of cells or mere tissue, but people.

A Deeper Evil Than Other Forms of Murder

 By Zephram Foster - Posted at American Reformer: You shall not commit murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not commit pederasty, you shall not commit fornication, you shall not steal, you shall not practice magic, you shall not practice witchcraft, you shall not murder a child by abortion nor kill that which is born. -The Didache Deep Witchcraft “Nobody likes abortion,” so says the bleeding heart. “It’s just a necessary evil, we need to have more sympathy for victims.” The victims in view, oddly enough, are always the perpetrators carrying out the massacre, never the children being slaughtered. So blow the winds of our time. If you’re a Christian who affirms what the historic Christian faith has to say about the killing of an unborn child, you’ve probably had an encounter like the one above. You’ve probably been told that you just need to try and empathize more with the suffering mothers, and then you would see that the issue isn’t as black and white as your bigotry has l

This is what Ohio and six other states voted for and celebrate

 By Nancy Flanders - Posted at LiveAction: Earlier this month, Ohio voted to enshrine abortion as a “right” in its state constitution. Six other states have done likewise in the last year, including California, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Montana, and Vermont. Killing children in the womb at any point in pregnancy is now a protected action in these states. To accomplish this, abortion proponents had to convince the majority of voters that women have a “right” to dead children, and they had to erase the casualties of that “right” entirely. Erasing the primary victim is easy in the abortion debate. These victims can’t march down streets carrying posters and chanting for their equal rights — because they’re dead. They were killed without the opportunity to even cry out. Their bodies were then buried — not in proper graves, but hidden and disposed of in medical waste facilities, dumpsters, and the sewer system after being brutally suctioned, dismembered, or injected with lethal drugs.
