An Inalienable Right

As all Christians are aware, yesterday marked the 33rd year of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade ruling, which essentially made abortion on demand the law of the United States, a ruling which Christians and all good people who recognize the right of the unborn human being to be born have decried since the day it was decided. The decision that a mother has the right to end her unborn baby's life in the name of reproductive freedom and the "right to privacy" by any means she and her doctor choose, and even up until the unborn human being is more than viable, is a national shame and humiliation, and as I have often said, God will not let it go on forever without judgment. Many churches observed Sanctity of Human Life Day yesterday in remembrance of this court ruling and the estimated forty-five million children who have been aborted, which in my estimation, lowered the national value of human life, and the outcome has been a generation of men and women who are more disrespectful, less compassionate and more selfish. I'm sure cities all over the country hosted gatherings of pro-lifers in their parks and squares. You will not see this noted by the main stream media.

In the intervening years since the decision, abortion has been found to be a dangerous and emotionally painful procedure and recovery, something that is routinely ignored by the main stream media. According to Alan Guttmacher, Planned Parenthood's research organization, today 24% of all pregnancies end from induced abortion, of which 2/3 are among never-married women. The attempts to further promote abortion by advancing embryonic stem cell research have been a complete bust-- "...There have been no successful uses medically of embryonic stem cells to date..." There has been much success in adult stem-cell research, but it is largely ignored by the left, because it does not further the agenda of abortion rights.

We have lost millions of Americans to abortion and we are short millions of laborers in this country. "We see what happens in the imbalance." And more, here.

I found this lovely article by Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, and I suggest you all read it. In it she says:

Then too, what about the rights of each baby who is artificially breached before coming to term in his or her mother’s womb, only to have her skull punctured, and feel, yes agonizingly "feel" the life run out of her before she takes her first breath of freedom. What about of the rights of these women who have been called to pioneer the new frontiers of the new millennium only to have their lives snuffed out before the calendar even turns?
I have often noted that half of the people we are killing in the abortion mills are female. It's clear that abortion rights have not helped them.

Today, there are many rallies and meetings in our nation's capital. There will be a huge rally and march to the Capitol and the Supreme Court. There will be a brief note by the mainstream media and the numbers will be downsized as always. Celebrations on the other side of the aisle will be upsized.

But regardless of the bias of the media and the total incomprehensibility of the left on this issue, we must keep fighting until the right to abortion is no more.

God help us. We are a nation under judgment and the blood of these innocent children is on all of us. Pray, as always, for the end to abortion rights.
