While many are hailing the recent SCOTUS leak of their intention to overrule Roe w. Wade, Abortion Abolitionists have many cautions in place and warnings that this may not be all it seems. We wanted to highlight their perspective. From Russell Hunter, Director of Free the States, an Oklahoma-based lobbying group dedicated to passing bills to truly abolish abortion across the country.
Written on Facebook just hours before the SCOTUS decision leaked:
“If the Supreme Court rules later this year that abortion is not a Constitutional right and never has been, we will have had 50 years of total state subserviency to a legal fiction which led to the mass murder of seventy million Americans.
Of course there will be incrementalists who claim that they were right to obey the court’s unjust decree for five decades and that we never would have gotten to this point without their fifty-year focus on seeking increments and regulations rather than outright abolition.
What a shameful wicked prideful argument that will be! For, if the court rules that the long-held prohibition of a states’ rights to criminalize abortion is not constitutional and has in fact never been constitutional and the court was just wrong, then the past fifty years of obedience to the court will have been fifty years disobedience to God and the US Constitution.
Delaying abolition for fifty years in service to an unconstitutional and iniquitous decree will be nothing to brag about.
PS: What is perhaps equally as sad and frustrating is that we will still have to Free the States from participating in state-sanctioned child sacrifice as a result of the vast indoctrination of abortion rights sentiment cultivated by the past fifty years of abortion regulationism which has ruled supreme on both the left and the right of our culture of death.
And then written a few hours after the leaks:
For the past 5 decades, not a single state government in the union has upheld the constitutionally recognized inalienable right to life or obeyed God over and above the Supreme Court. They have all submitted to the Supreme Court and have refused to protect preborn children from abortion. They have all followed the legal fiction of Roe v Wade and granted special murder rights to any women who become a mother. As a result some 70 million babies have been butchered in the womb under the color of unjust laws and pro-life regulations.
Now the states are looking to the Supreme Court to give them permission to regulate abortion beyond what they have already been doing and the pro-life industry is celebrating the potential granting of a states’ right to regulate abortion within their borders as a great victory.
Unfortunately in many of the most pro-life states legislation has already been passed granting mothers total immunity from prosecution if and when they carry out their own abortions (self-managed abortion is massively on the rise). Even in states where abolitionist agitation and lobbying have provoked pro-life establishment politicians to pass court-compliant “trigger bills” as substitutes for abolition, none of the bans on abortion that are to be triggered by a repeal of Roe seek to establish equal justice and equal protection for preborn human beings.
In the event that SCOTUS does rule in accordance with Justice Alito’s leaked draft, justice will not be established in a single state of the union. Every state will still need to pass bills of total and immediate abolition and enforce laws establishing equal justice and equal protection for the preborn.
Of course, it would be even better if the federal government would likewise pass a bill or act of total and immediate abolition which criminalized the practice of child sacrifice in all 50 states. The federal government does have the right and duty to carry out such an act! If they did, no doubt we would see many liberal states attempt to nullify the abolition act and threaten to secede from the union in order to protect the “peculiar institution” of abortion.
All of this is to say that the battle against abortion is far from over. Do not let any of the organizations hyping Alito’s draft and claiming victory for the pro-life movement induce you to let up a single second. In all truth, the supreme Court would not even be considering the repeal of Roe v Wade were it not for the growing threat of state-by-state abolitionist nullification.
We cannot let up now. We must increase our demand for total and immediate abolition. Power concedes nothing without a demand and the conflict between those who want abortion to be utterly abolished and those who want to retain the states’ right to regulate it continues. Press on for the glory of God and love of your preborn neighbors!
