Today should be declared a day of National Mourning for our country. On this day, 35 years ago, in the most sinful and foolish decision ever perpetuated by the Supreme Court, life was declared worthless.
In a decision that not only showed contempt for established law, but invented new law to wrench the Constitution to a place where it was never intended, the justices found a before undiscovered “right to privacy” buried deep in the depths of the framers words. This “right to privacy” was then contorted into a right to murder.
Our nation defied God on that day (and continues to defy Him), declaring convenience is more important than the 6th Commandment. Declaring a sinful violation of the 7th and 9th Commandments could now be consequence free.
All who follow God should take time this day to weep and fast and pray. We need to beg God’s forgiveness that we, His image bearers, consider His image worthless.
We need to weep for those who have been lost to this crime, for those who have foolishly killed the precious life they were given to carry, and even for those who for personal gain provide the means for the slaughter.
And we need to fear when we hear the Words of the Lord
Psa 2:1-12 ESV Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? (2) The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against his Anointed, saying, (3) “Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.” (4) He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision. (5) Then he will speak to them in his wrath, and terrify them in his fury, saying, (6) “As for me, I have set my King on Zion, my holy hill.” (7) I will tell of the decree: The LORD said to me, “You are my Son; today I have begotten you. (8) Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession. (9) You shall break them with a rod of iron and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.” (10) Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth. (11) Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. (12) Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, for his wrath is quickly kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
