After the U.S. Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization returned regulation of abortion to the states, we are seeing a widening chasm between state leadership. Some states are stepping up efforts to protect life in the womb while others are expanding legalized abortion to all stages of pregnancy. All stages. All nine months. No restrictions. (These include Colorado, Vermont and the District of Columbia). In the past, even supporters of abortion on demand frequently supported restrictions beyond 20 weeks, but that is becoming a thing of the past.
Justice vs Injustice
Those crying “my body, my choice” are seeking justice for women, defending it as a basic human right. But it is an unrighteous justice because it involves an injustice to the child who has no choice. An action that requires taking the life of another innocent human being cannot be fundamentally “just” or “righteous”.
Just – acting or being in conformity with what is morally upright or good
In economic terms, the pursuit of improving the life of one individual while not harming another is referred to as pareto efficiency. Hypothetically, if there were perfect competition and resources were used to maximum efficient capacity, then everyone would be at their highest standard of living, or Pareto efficiency.
An economy is said to be in a Pareto optimum state when no economic changes can make one individual better off without making at least one other individual worse off. A Pareto improvement occurs when a change in allocation harms no one and helps at least one person.
Lies vs Truth
The world says children are a disposable inconvenience and a hindrance to me living my best life.
God says “children are a blessing of the Lord, and the fruit of the womb is a reward.” Psalm 127:3
The world says the bible has nothing to say regarding abortion.
God says “You shall not murder.” Exodus 20:13
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” Isaiah 5:20
After Cain murdered his brother Abel, “The LORD said, “What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground.” Genesis 4:10
The blood of millions of innocent children cries out for their soul’s right to live. Let us not grow weary in doing good. Let us not give up the fight to defend the most innocent among us. Continue to speak up for righteous justice from city to city and state to state.
Let it not be said of us, “ . . . rebelling and denying the LORD, turning away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering lies from the heart. So justice is turned away, and righteousness stands at a distance. For truth has stumbled in the public square, and honesty cannot enter.” Isaiah 59: 12-14
