As bad as the Supreme Court decision was in The Presidents and the Democrat's so called "Affordable Care Act"...and it was a horrendous blow against liberty and limited government, it pales in comparison to the decision handed down 40 years ago today in Roe v Wade. I wonder how many people today even know about Roe. I ask students that come into my Constitutional Law course each year this question ...and fewer and fewer recognize it every year. In Roe, the Court elevated the right of privacy and "choice" over the rights of little human babies made in the image of God. Conservative estimates tell us that over 60 Million little children have been butchered in their mothers’ wombs with the blessing of the government of the United States of America.
Let me bring your attention to these words in our founding charter (The Declaration of Independence) this morning:
"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.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men,"
All I will submit to you this morning is that we have failed miserably in living up to the mandate in our founding charter in securing the right to life of the unborn....the most defenseless of our citizenry.
May God have mercy on us.
