While many are hailing the recent SCOTUS 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 after the SCOTUS decision was released
Today is not a day to celebrate and praise God for what the Supreme Court has done.
Yes, today brings an end to the nearly five decades rule of Roe. But consider this in your celebrations. Throughout this period we have had the opportunity to stand up and obey God when the courts of man have told us that no state has the right to criminalize child sacrifice and protect preborn humans from murder in the womb.
We can no longer ignore, nullify, or defy Roe v Wade. The time for showing courage and faith to take action and decry the iniquitous decree of the courts of man when it comes to protecting preborn children from slaughter has ended. We can now no longer display obedience to God in defiance of the godless court as a people repenting and following the the true King and His “Law above all laws” instead of obeying our black robed judicial overlords. The Lord has brought this period and opportunity “for the people of God to rise up and do exploits” (Daniel 11:32) to an end.
Surely this is a dark day for us and a greater judgment of God against a wicked and rebellious people has now befallen us. We have gone down to Egypt for our help and we will now enter a period of shame, humiliation, and confusion.
“Woe to the rebellious children, saith the Lord, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin: That walk to go down into Egypt, and have not asked at my mouth; to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt! Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh be your shame, and the trust in the shadow of Egypt your confusion.” (Isaiah 30:1-3)
No. Today is not a day to celebrate. It is a day for repentance.
Today is a day to confess and repent of our idolatry of man and cease our total compliance and subservience to the weak and dark dictates of the courts of men. Today is a day to confess and repent of our failure to fear God more than we fear men. Today is a day to take stock of just how weak we have been and still are, and to rise up and go a different direction in the strength and admonition of the Lord.
We are still looking to war-horses and chariots and letting godless men and ideas rule our hearts and minds. Stop your celebrating and cry out to the Lord a confession of sin and disobedience. We are a wretched and false people who neither know or follow the King of Kings collectively as a people, as states, or as a nation. The religious leaders and congregations of our culture of death cannot even fathom what I have written in this paltry Facebook post! They do not know that this is a day of judgment and a day for solemn assembly and woe. They see it as a day to be proud and boast about their long disobedience to God and continued delay of justice. They are blind guides leading the blind.
So no! You will not read from me a simple “praise God, but we still have work to do” type status. I am not interested in collecting “likes” and “atta-boys”. I am deeply distraught as I look upon the state of our nation, its leaders and its people, and I lament the state of our individual states, the fact that they can no longer display repentance and obedience to God in nullifying Roe, and I am saddened most of all by the state of our churches and religious leaders.
Yes… there is still an opportunity to repent and all is not lost. But that must be our cry. Repent! Not celebrate. Confess! Not congratulate. Repent! Rise up and follow the Lord. Tomorrow is a new day to do what is right and by the Grace of God we can still repent. But we will not get there by praising God that we have gained the supreme court’s permission to regulate abortion at the state level or by thanking God for the supreme court’s confessed neutrality toward child sacrifice.
Come now, let us reason together.
