US Supreme Court Decision on Abortion

What does it mean?

The court’s momentous decision, while it doesn’t outlaw abortion, has given Christians a timely teaching moment as each state will now be considering its own laws regarding abortion. This is an opportunity to present the powerful message that from both a biblical and scientific perspective, life begins at the moment of fertilization. Abortion destroys a human being, someone who is “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14) and created in the image of God. It is murder—a child sacrifice to the “god of self.” As we show in a powerful pro-life exhibit in our Creation Museum, being pro-abortion is often the outgrowth of accepting an evolutionary philosophy, one that believes humans are merely animals in the process of evolution and that they can be discarded like spare animals that are euthanized in animal shelters. As all 50 states now consider their own laws on abortion, education on this vital issue is needed now more than ever.

From Leak to Victory?

In May 2022, the United States Supreme Court suffered an unprecedented event: a draft of one of their opinions was leaked to the media, something that had never happened in the history of the court. And it was not just any opinion, it was the opinion on a case involving abortion. The draft opinion overturned the wicked Roe v Wade decision and returned the decisions to the states.

Predictably, demonic activity1 increased at the potential to lose some of their regular human sacrifices. In the short time since the leak, at least 23 pro-life organizations have been either vandalized or firebombed.2 An infanticide activist even arrived at a Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home prepared to assassinate him!3 Fortunately, the assassin was thwarted, but the explosion of violence should come as no surprise from people who are willing to murder babies for their own convenience. It is sadly consistent with such a godless worldview.

Now is the time for Christians to step up in their home states and help end this barbaric practice forever!

Now the final decision has been released. In a 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court ruled, “The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives.”4 In other words, down goes Roe!

Abortion is a vile, wicked procedure, and regrettably, the Supreme Court ruling does not ban the practice. Human life has value because all humans are made in the image of God (Genesis 1:26-27). And Scripture makes clear that we are known by God and created in his image from the moment of fertilization:

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. (Psalm 139:13–16, emphasis mine)

The fact that the United States continues to allow children to be slaughtered in cold blood, then allows their organs to be sold for research is sickening and ought to cause us to weep. And God hates “hands that shed innocent blood” (Proverbs 6:17).

Now is the time for Christians to step up in their home states and help end this barbaric practice forever! And let us continue to pray for those who may literally be on the front lines in this process and the families and lives continuing to be destroyed while abortion is still legal.

Praise the Lord for this progress, but there is much more work yet to be done in each state.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
Ken
