Let us begin by presenting the following:
How The Supreme Court Decided Roe v. Wade
The Court split the difference between the two arguments presented. First, the Court recognized that abortion does fall under women’s privacy rights.
The constitutional right to privacy comes from the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The Due Process Clause does not explicitly state that Americans have a right to privacy. However, the Supreme Court has recognized such a right going all the way back to 1891.
Just one year before Roe, the Supreme Court held that “in a Constitution for a free people, there can be no doubt that the meaning of ‘liberty’ must be broad indeed.” In Roe v. Wade, the Court decided that this right to privacy extends to a woman’s control over a pregnancy.
In Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decided two important things:
- The United States Constitution provides a fundamental “right to privacy” that protects a woman’s right to choose whether to have an abortion.
- But the abortion right is not absolute. It must be balanced against the government’s interests in protecting women’s health and prenatal life.
Since 1973 when Roe vs Wade, some 63,459,781 babies have been aborted. We have no idea how many of those were actual medical emergencies for the mother, but I contend that the number would be extremely small.
Obviously, opinions vary about the beginning of life. Some even extending this time as months after birth. That may sound ridiculous, but check it out on Google.
In Isaiah 46:3, God says he upholds the individual from the time of conception. And in Psalm 139:15, David writes “My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place.” Either you believe the Bible or you don’t so that dictates which side of the issue you fall.
There are many other reasons to object to abortion by choice. Margaret Sanger is credited with pushing for abortion on demand and she made it quite clear that she intended for blacks to be reduced by this “freedom”. If you doubt that statement, please let me quote:
“On the other hand, the mass of ignorant Negroes still breed carelessly and disastrously, so that the increase among Negroes, even more than the increase among whites, is from that part of the population least intelligent and fit, and least able to rear their children properly.”
~W.E.B. DuBois, Professor of Sociology, Atlanta University. “Black Folk and Birth Control.” [Margaret Sanger’s] Birth Control Review, Volume XXII, Number 8 (New Series, May 1938, the “Negro Number”), page 90.
Furthermore, Planned Parenthood is a gigantic industry. Not only does the organization provide this service, almost exclusively, it also sells fetal body parts and cells for research and drug development. Most stem cell therapies have been derived from fetal cells or tested on fetal cells. Again, allow me to quote:
PRODUCTS MADE FROM ABORTED FETAL CELLS
Here is a short list of some of the products that contain human aborted fetal cells:
- N E S T L É
- F I R M E N I CH

VACCINES AND MEDICATIONS
- C O V I D – 1 9 VACCINES – Vaccines produced by these companies have been either tested or produced with fetal cell lines: Altimmune, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, Vaxart, Novavax, University of Pittsburgh, Moderna, Pfizer and BioNTech, Sanofi Pasteur, Inovio Pharmaceuticals, Arcturas Therapeutics.

One could confidently conclude that the mania about the abortion issue is based upon a doubtful “right to privacy” and is profit motivated for the benefit of some large corporations.
If these facts don’t convince you, then you are beyond factual, independent thought.
How about one more factoid? Politics!
The US has an assortment of political parties, but only the Democratic and the Republican parties dominate the formation of our government. We have witnessed a schism forming in our nation for a number of years based on any number of political ideologies, however, let’s look at the issue of abortion.
The DNC has used term “Freedom of Choice” as a rallying cry to garner women voters for over five decades. The RNC, for its own benefit has supported the “Right to Life” movement. Neither should be political fight songs.
The opinion that ultimately matters is God’s opinion and the Bible spells that out in no uncertain terms. For all those who are threatening violence and harassment, consider what your opinions mean to your immortal soul. God is watching and He will judge.
Think about it!
