Our Nation's Problems Begin with Absence of Awe for the Miracle of Life!
Friday, Jan. 20, 2023, pro-life Americans will March for Life in Washington, D.C. Hundreds of thousands will march, as they have marched since 1973. But this year, it is different. This year, the march will take place, for the first time, in an America where Roe v. Wade is no longer the law of the land.
This is what pro-life Americans have been working toward and praying for all these years. And now we show that our nation is still a nation where dreams come true. And a nation where, despite often losing our way, sooner or later truth returns.
Reading how the Supreme Court's decision in June of 2022, Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, is widely reported, we see that many still do not understand what happened in that decision, which ended the Roe v. Wade regime.
Pew Research reports that, in Dobbs, the Supreme Court ruled to "end the constitutional right to abortion."
National Public Radio reported last June that the court reversed Roe v. Wade, "declaring that the constitutional right to abortion, upheld for nearly a half century, no longer exists."
The Dobbs decision was not just about abortion. It was about restoring the way the court should be doing its job.
The court cannot, despite what many in the media seem to think, create or end rights. The court's job, judicial review, is to apply, not create, reality. That reality is the U.S. Constitution.
The complaint all these years about Roe v. Wade has been that only someone with either a very active imagination or a very active conviction that their personal opinion is more important than what the Constitution actually says could find a right to abortion in the U.S. Constitution.
The conservative judges who ruled to overturn that decision did not rule as they did to "end" rights. They did it because nowhere in the U.S. Constitution is there anything written that can be understood to be a right to abortion.
Consider that the preamble of the Constitution explains its purpose "to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity." Can anyone believe that the drafter of that passage felt that among those blessings of liberty is a right for a woman to abort her child?
