Tonight, excerpts of the majority opinion from the upcoming Dobbs v. Jackson case currently before Supreme Court were leaked to the public.
All signs from the leaked documents point to Justice Samuel Alito leading the majority opinion in a blistering criticism and consequent overturning of the Roe v. Wade decision, made in 1973. Since that fateful decision, over 63 million innocent lives have been taken.
Regardless of the highly questionable method whereby these documents were leaked, an incontrovertible decision in favor of life would be a redemptive moment in American history.
Years of bloodshed and tears shed by would-be mothers and fathers would begin to be reconciled and our nation could move forward with new life.
The bottom line is this: whether or not the Supreme Court decides in favor of life and does indeed overturn Roe, elections have consequences and those that live, vote.
The French observer of American life, Alexis de Tocqueville articulated in his work Democracy in America, “The safeguard of morality is religion, and morality is the best security of law and the surest pledge of freedom.” He might say today that the surest pledge of freedom and morality is the pledge to protect life at all costs.
We must wait and pray for the cause of life.
