“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.” (Psalm 139:13-16)
On January 22, 1973 seven judges ruled that a mother has the right to kill her baby while it is in the womb. Somehow, the Supreme Court decided there was a right to privacy somewhere hidden in the 14th amendment.
The 14th Amendment Section 1 reads:
“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”
Privacy is nowhere mentioned. Furthermore, how can you take the superficial “right to privacy” and justify the murdering of a baby? The justices should have taken the fourteenth amendment and used “nor shall any state deprive any person of life” to make abortion illegal. Instead, they yielded to evil by legalizing the murdering of babies. They also proved that they were unlettered when it comes to the Constitution.
”The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. The man said, "This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man." Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.” (Genesis 2:22-24)
On June 26, 2015 five judges ruled that homosexual “marriage” is a constitutionally protected legal right across the United States. This decision too was ruled under the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment. This clause as quoted above says, “nor denies to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”
As I’ve addressed before, the equal protection clause of the fourteenth amendment was added in 1868 to end racial inequality and ensure blacks the same liberties as whites. Prior to the marriage ruling in June, all U.S. citizens had equal protection under the law. Any man could’ve married one woman assuming they were of legal age and not already married to someone else. That is equal protection and application of marriage laws.
Some of the worst decisions affecting this country have been made at the Supreme Court. Dred Scott, Roe v. Wade and lastly the recent marriage decision are all terribly tragic and fateful decisions SCOTUS decisions.
In order to assure we don’t allow the Supreme Court to issue anymore anti-God rulings, Christians must pray for our leaders (1 Timothy 2:1-4). We must also elect a President that will appoint future judges that will stand for righteousness (Proverbs 29:2).
