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.

Bannon Testimony has DOJ Spooked, with Department Pushing to Silence Media Magnate

Cowards.

Published

on

While some Democrats have applauded the boldness of the select committee investigating January 6th, there are undercurrents of concern about the group’s actions beginning to surface.

For starters, their willingness to call some of the right wing media’s most potent orators to the witness stand, where they will almost certainly befuddle and obliterate those who seek to do harm to their reputations.

In other words:  Subpoenaing Roger Stone, Alex Jones, and Steve Bannon is likely an exampled of the committee biting off more than they can realistically chew.

It seems as though the Department of Justice agrees with this assessment, and they are taking action to prevent the Democrats on the committee from embarrassing themselves.

Prosecutors have accused former President Donald Trump’s ex-adviser Steve Bannon of attempting to try his criminal case through the media instead of in court and have asked a judge to limit what Bannon can release publicly throughout the case, according to a new filing in DC District Court.

Bannon is trying to convince a judge not to bar him and his lawyers from sharing documents he receives from the Justice Department with the public before his trial.

The DOJ prosecutors said in the filing Sunday some of those records must stay private while the case is pending, because they include internal communications between congressional staffers and notes of FBI interviews with witnesses who could testify against Bannon at trial.

The DOJ would rather work in darkness.

“Allowing the defendant to publicly disseminate reports of witness statements will have the collateral effect of witness tampering because it will expose witnesses to public commentary on their potential testimony before trial and allow a witness to review summaries of other witnesses’ statements recounting the same event or events,” the prosecutors wrote on Sunday.

The move reeks of cowardice on behalf of the Biden administration, and flies in the face of transparency and understanding.
