There is a lot of focus on the legal aspects of the abortion issue. It is necessary to do so.
We must recognize that at its core, it is a matter of the heart and a moral issue first.
We must win the moral argument. We must resist the temptation to focus exclusively on the legal.
We must protect the lives of children. To not do so makes us sick in our souls and we will be held accountable for that. There will be a day of judgement.
Our country was founded on the principle of the sacredness of life. Our creator endowed us with the right and responsibility to protect life.
“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.”
So it is a simple question if you believe life does not begin at conception and should be protected.
What if you are wrong?
In one week during January 1973, President Richard M. Nixon was inaugurated to his second term, former President Lyndon B. Johnson died, the United States and North Vietnam entered into the Paris Peace Accords, and the Supreme Court legalized abortion. Only the last of these events continues to affect and haunt the moral and constitutional order every minute of every day.
The Court’s decision in Roe vs. Wade is arguably its most controversial in the post-World War II era. Its effect has been as pernicious to human life as was its 19th century intellectual progenitor, Dred Scott vs. Sanford, in which the Supreme Court ruled that African-Americans are not persons.
