ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The 1973 Supreme Court decision that legitimized on-demand abortion in the case of Roe v. Wade is not “settled law.” The court did not permanently legalize abortion in the United States by admitting it could not resolve “the question of when life begins.” It clearly stated: “If personhood is established, the appellant’s case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the Amendment.”

Biological and scientific evidence is well established that a human person exists from the time of conception. Congress now has a record number of sponsors in the House and Senate to pass the “Life at Conception Act.” The bill declares that unborn children are persons as described in the 14th Amendment, and as such are entitled to legal protection. The “Unborn Victims of Violence Act” of 2004 already recognizes an embryo or fetus in-utero as a legal victim and human being.

For more than 45 years, nine unelected men and women on the Supreme Court have played God with innocent human life, and have condemned to painful death more than 70 million babies. Judges, abortionists and all the supporters of abortion have blood on their hands for those deaths. And all who have been silent and have not resisted the lie of abortion will answer to God for those deaths.

I pray Judge Kavanaugh will have the courage to truthfully acknowledge that there is no “settled law” in Roe v. Wade.
