In the 46 years since the Supreme Court perverted the meaning of the Constitution in falsely claiming the “right” to murder one’s child, over 65 million babies have been murdered – mostly for convenience’s sake of a mother, or to cover up sexual sin. Since then, it has become indisputable, even when ignoring the Scriptures, that when sperm and egg unite, there is new DNA, a new human being is created, and a new person with a new genetic code.
Then, in 2004, Congress made the personhood of the unborn child legally recognizable by passing Federal Law 18 U.S. Code § 1841 – Protection of Unborn Children (popularly known as “Laci and Conner’s Law). This has established the fact that all unborn children are human beings, stating a child is a member of the species of Homo Sapiens at ANY state of development inside the womb, and criminalizes the intentional killing or attempting to kill a human being.
Yet Congress and the President continue to give over half a billion dollars a year to Planned Parenthood to slaughter children.
And more recently, the New York state legislature applauded the fact they would now allow the killing of children up until birth, and the following week Governor Northam of Virginia actually advocated for legal infanticide!
I am unaware of the outrage, if any, this has resulted in among believers, but we must remember what Scripture tells us, “Open your mouth for the dumb, for the rights of the unfortunate. Open your mouth, judge righteously, and defend the rights of the afflicted and needy” (Proverbs 31:8-9). I believe the ESV says “helpless” rather than “unfortunate.” Who could be more helpless than an unborn baby?
And we wonder why it seems our freedoms are eroding today in the United States? I have begun reading the book, “The Theme Is Freedom” by M. Stanton Evans, which makes the case that “for freedom to exist, there have to be certain assumptions about the intrinsic worth of the individual, the respect that is owed to all human beings, the need to limit compulsions that can be used by one person against another.”
We have come to the point where morality is deemed irrelevant, and hence, contrary to our nation’s founding principles, has no basis for law. Even many Christians today have fallen for the lies that strong belief in anything translates to a desire to impose it on other people when instead, it is biblical law that is the basis for our own law and order, and without it, there is more chaos. Faith and freedom go together, and you cannot have the latter without the foundations of the first! John Adams declared, “Public virtue is the only foundation of republics.” Freedom does not mean that people are coerced to believe in biblical morality. Indeed, freedom is the absence of coercion. And hence, our Founding Fathers developed a government with laws based on biblical precepts, but with limits on the power of the state. The government does not have the authority to allow one human being to kill another, and all human beings are to be equally protected as to their life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.
