I don’t believe that Roe vs. Wade discovered a previously hidden right mothers always had to kill their unborn babies. Ultimately, I believe this decision was made for the sake of promoting promiscuous sex and the undermining of traditional morals which could not help but wreak havoc on the family and society as a whole.
How much net abortions will decrease as a result of the Supreme Court relegating the “legality” of this issue back to the states is anyone’s guess. In some places it will be harder, so they will go down. In the bluest states like California and New York, they may skyrocket. This should be a metric that’s monitored.
At the same time, amidst all the yelling and screaming surrounding the decision on June 24th, I find the total lack of discussion of the morality of the promiscuous sex that leads to the overwhelming number of abortions to be… not surprising. None on the Left would ever encourage abstinence until marriage. They would never extol the virtues of such. Hedonism and outright sexual degeneracy are what they promote in every way possible.
Could you imagine the reprobates at CNN encouraging abstinence? Forgive the cliche, but, hell would freeze over before you see this.
The bastards want people to be base, mindless animals who kill their babies like Canaanites because such a people are easily controlled and enslaved. If the mind, body and soul of a person are all in the trash, there is no escape to a higher realm where you are more empowered to direct your life according to the mind and free will God gave you. You are controlled by sin and circumstance. You have no volition other than that of an animal. That’s where they want you.
This is why, in Colossians 3, Paul told us to…
“Seek those things which are above where Christ sitteth” and…
“Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth” and…
“Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence and covetousness, which is idolatry”
Evil people want us to think the words of the Bible have no relevance to the modern world. They want us to think only fools, cowards, authoritarians and reprobates still put any stock in the ancient words and wisdom.
Of course, as such a fool, I see why they have taught generations such things. They love destruction. They know nothing else.
