Today, we pause to reflect on a most significant anniversary, matched by few in America’s history. Just a year ago, the U.S. Supreme Court found the integrity to announce that it was reversing the abominable precedent known as Roe v. Wade. The Dobbs decision stands along landmark rulings like Brown in its clarion support for human dignity.
Given the gross social pressures, the courage displayed by a majority of justices cannot be undervalued. Repeatedly over the past five decades previous Courts asserted that abortion-on-demand was a “settled” constitutional right. It became a mantra intended more to bully the American people into accepting the court’s political whims – than an insightful exposition about what the Framers intended. Justice Alito did a masterful and thorough job of finally coming clean with the world: The Supreme Court of the United States had failed its trust and commission miserably by trying to impose a “right” to abortion upon the American People. There was no such thing in the Constitution – as we all plainly knew. Nor could one fabricate one with any degree of intellectual integrity.
Alito’s rigorous honesty will serve the country and Court well in coming decades, across a host of issues and controversies.
One year ago, the states were set free to re-establish protections for preborn babies – as they had done since the founding of the Republic. Idaho is one of the states who prepared for the day when Roe would fall of its leaden deceit. The result has been a halt of abortions in this state. In fact, the destruction of Roe has led to a dramatic decline in the number of abortions performed across the country – even as wicked politicians in some states curry votes by crafting new schemes to continue the slaughter.
The Bible tells us that God gave us the Law out of love – to help us understand the difference between right and wrong. One of the great disasters of the Roe Era is that the Supreme Court gave confused, vulnerable people a license to kill the innocent. With this reversal, that broad permission has been rescinded. And many people, even in blue states, have found the courage of their conscience to resist the Left’s lies – and taken ownership again of choosing life for another human being.
On this day, we must pause to reflect on the great blessings which have begun to unfold since Dobbs. And we must take the time to thank Almighty and Merciful God for delivering us from the bondage of an irresponsible and unaccountable Supreme Court.
We must also acknowledge the immense contribution to human justice made by President Donald Trump. It was he who finally delivered on the decades-old promise by Republican politicians to “fight for us” … to “give us a pro-Life court which would faithfully interpret the Constitution”. Not Reagan, not Bush or even Bush Junior. Donald Trump. The only Republican President who actually meant what he said. Millions will find life and redemption because of him.
