5 Reasons Roe v. Wade Must Be Overturned

There are many, many reasons Roe was a terrible decision, both legally and morally, and it’s hard to argue that anyone who believes in the founding principles of our country would oppose it.

From the moment Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court, the left has been absolutely losing their minds over the possibility of Roe v. Wade being overturned.

Of course, for Christians, and anyone else who respects the sanctity of life, this is fantastic news, despite the fact that there’s no sure guarantee Kavanaugh’s confirmation will automatically result in one of the worst SCOTUS decisions of all time being overturned.

However, there have been a few conservatives, most notably Tomi Lahren, who have tried to argue that overturning a Supreme Court decision that has resulted in the legal slaughter of 60 million + unborn children wouldn’t be politically expedient for Republicans.

There are many, many reasons Roe was a terrible decision, both legally and morally, and it’s hard to argue that anyone who believes in the founding principles of our country would oppose it.

Christian Post contributor Jerry Newcombe (who did not mention Lahren in his arguments) recently broke down five very good reasons Roe v. Wade should be overturned.

First of all, he says, is that the decision was all based on lies.

The main lie was that an abortion was needed for Roe (whom we later learned was Norma McCorvey) because she was supposedly gang-raped. But that was not true. McCorvey just wanted an abortion, and her attorney falsely promised to help her get one, knowing full well it could not happen in time (since cases that go up to the Supreme Court take time to adjudicate).

That’s not the only lie surrounding the case, either. Another was how many women died each year from illegal abortions, which at the time, abortionist Bernard Nathanson told the media was about 10,000 women illegal.

He later admitted that he made the number up from thin air, but a willing media reported it as if it were gospel truth. In 1972, the last year before Roe, the CDC reports that 39 women died from illegal abortions in America. That may be 39 too many, but it’s a far cry from 10,000.

Stunningly, Newcombe says, both McCorvey and Nathanson became pro-life Christians following this landmark case.

The second reason Roe must be overturned is that it has no real constitutional basis. 

While Tomi Lahren claimed on The View last year that she was pro-choice because she was a “constitutional,” it turns out her knowledge of constitutional law is about as substantial as her ability to describe one who adheres to the constitution.

Newcombe says that even pro-choice legal scholars admit that Roe was a terribly reasoned decision.

The whole thing was based on the “right to privacy,” which is not spelled out in the Constitution. Instead it comes from “Griswold vs. Connecticut”(1965), which stated: “…specific guarantees in the Bill of Rights have penumbras, formed by emanations from those guarantees that help give them life and substance…Various guarantees create zones of privacy.”

What is a “penumbra”, Newcombe asks? For the answer, he refers to Alliance Defending Freedom lawyer Mike Farris who explains it’s an obscure astrological term that essentially boils down to made-up phrases based on loose interpretations of the Bill of Rights. Farris explains:

“And these made-up phrases, like the emanations coming from the penumbras of the Bill of Rights is just so much hooey that allows a judge to do whatever he wants to do. And it substitutes the rule of law for the rule of a judge’s personal proclivities.”

Newcombe adds:

Roe is part of a recent tradition that views the Constitution as a living document subject to change—leading us to be governed by the whims of a handful of judges with lifetime tenure.

The third reason Roe must be overturned refutes one of the core reasons the left feels so passionately about Roe: abortion hurts women. Abortion regret, a very real and common struggle post-abortive women face, is rarely discussed on the left.

Thankfully, many of the walking wounded have found healing through the cross of Jesus Christ. But the scars can remain. One pro-life woman put it this way: “For millions of American women, abortion is a heartache that will never go away, even after conversion. They may be healed, but the heartache will never go away.”

The fourth reason Newcombe gives for why Roe should be overturned is simple:

Sixty million American lives have been snuffed out since “Roe.” What a moral travesty.

And finally, the most important reason of all for Roe to be overturned: God opposes abortion. 

This reason is the only one that ultimately counts. God says He opposes the shedding of innocent blood. What must He think of the wide-scale deliberate slaughter of the innocents?

All of us reading these words should be grateful that we escaped the abortionist’s knife. Tragically, tens of millions of our fellow Americans were not so fortunate.

We live in a nation of laws–laws that are based on our divinely determined natural rights. There would be no United States without the biblical principles on which our nation was founded, and the fact that our nation has strayed so far from its founding philosophy to the point that we’ve allowed the snuffing out of millions upon millions of young lives has thrown our country into serious moral crisis.

There’s still a long fight ahead of us to overturn Roe, but whether or not it ought to be overturned is beyond discussion for anyone who believes in the American experiment and what it stands for.

Kamala Harris’ Ex-Flame Makes WILD Prediction About 2020 Chances

Buckle up, folks.  Things are about to get pretty wild.

Kamala Harris

As with any election that involves an incumbent President, the other side of the aisle is straining to put as many candidates out in the ether as possible.

This crowding of the democratic race for 2020 will certainly provide the nation with a very intimate look into the differences among the progressive avenues of the left-wing, and will undoubtedly escalate their internal infighting to epic proportions.

There is a very real chance that this could bring the democratic party itself to its knees, as the socialist wing attempts to convert some of the more moderate wings, and with the possibility that the entire organization could be driven hard to the left.

And let’s not forget that the 2016 race created an unfathomable opportunity for the DNC to discover just how to rig their own primaries.  Now that this precedent has been set, trust in the democrats is at an all time low.

So, does Kamala Harris stand a chance?  Her ex-lover doesn’t seem to think so.

Former San Francisco mayor and California State Assembly speaker Willie Brown threw shade at his ex-girlfriend, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), and the other contenders for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2020, writing Saturday that none of them can beat President Donald Trump.

In his weekly column in the San Francisco Chronicle, Brown wrote:

Make no mistake, President Trump’s State of the Union address was the kickoff for his 2020 re-election campaign, and so far I’ve yet to see a Democrat who can beat him.

[T]he overnight polling after the speech showed that once again, he connected with voters, at least enough voters to make him a 2020 favorite.

You can’t say the same for the Democratic contenders. They all have impressive credentials, winning personalities and positive messages, but none displays the “people personality” that our media-savvy president has mastered.

Let’s just hope Democrats can figure out that we need to go beyond the left and motivate voters across the board, just as midterm congressional campaigns did under Nancy Pelosi’s leadership.

“Beyond the left” sounds like the surefire end of the democrats as we know it, but there will only be one way to know for sure.

Buckle up, folks.  Things are about to get pretty wild.

Leading 2020 Democrats Outed as Supporter of Segregation

Of course, the division of the American populace has worked wonders for democrats at the ballot box, where galvanized, fringe societal groups band together to fight the supposed “evils” of conservatism.

segregation

There has been a whole lot of talk about modern segregation, particular as it applies to the nation’s current political climate.

Over the course of the last few years, the liberal left has been doing their damnedest in order to disparage their across-the-aisle colleagues.  Republicans have routinely been targeted for extreme abuse by lawmakers such as Maxine Waters, and by celebrities such as Kathy Griffin.

In the case of Waters, it was only days after her infamous “form mobs” speech that several women from the Trump administration were shouted out of restaurants while dining with their families.  For Griffin, however, her faux “dead President” photoshoot was followed only two weeks later by the actions of a crazed Bernie Sanders campaign worker who attempted to assassinate the entire GOP charity baseball team in Virginia.

For the left, conservatives are simply second class citizens, and it shows.

But why are democrats so fond of this discrimination?  Well maybe it’s because they are secretly fond of all discrimination.

Take it from Joe Biden, on the subject of “busing” African Americans during our nation’s period of segregation.

“I think the concept of busing … that we are going to integrate people so that they all have the same access and they learn to grow up with one another and all the rest, is a rejection of the whole movement of black pride,” Biden said, “is a rejection of the entire black awareness concept, where black is beautiful, black culture should be studied and the cultural awareness of the importance of their own identity.

Desegregation was “a rejection of the entire black awareness concept, where black is beautiful, black culture should be studied; and the cultural awareness of the importance of their own identity, their own individuality,” Biden said.

Of course, the division of the American populace has worked wonders for democrats at the ballot box, where galvanized, fringe societal groups band together to fight the supposed “evils” of conservatism.

Naturally, the only way to make enemies out of countrymen is by hatred and segregation – possibly explaining why prominent democrats seem so blasé about such prejudice.
