The case of roe was a major milestone in the pro-life movement, but much more work is needed to defeat the culture of death that pervades American society.
The decision of the Supreme Court in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization overturned Roe v. Calf, Reversal of 49 years of nationally legalized abortion in the United States.
Contrary to dishonest reporting in the corporate media, the decision, announced on June 24, 2022, did not ban abortion. It just sent the abortion law back to the states for the people to decide. But even that fact was no consolation to people who believe that killing a child in the womb is a human right. Abortion activists rented their clothes, cried, wailed and gnashed their teeth on the steps of the Supreme Court.
Today is the first March for Life in the Postroe America, and I have no doubt there will be a lot of rejoicing that abortion is no longer a constitutionally protected “right.” I’m sure there will also be sad reflections on the more than 60 million babies who have been aborted since 1973. Both of these reactions should be expected, given that pro-life advocates have spent half a century strategizing, marching, lobbying, and praying for the end of abortion. It is always good to thank God for answered prayers.
Prayer is exactly what people who weep over need life like most people do with death. The prospect of more babies being born in this country is a sign of oppression and regression for people who see abortion as a necessary tool in the fight for women’s empowerment.
That’s because the most powerful forces in American culture all celebrate death and, unfortunately, killing roe is far from the final battle in the struggle for life.
The total assault on biological sex is the next frontier of the left’s death campaign. The people who accuse others of denying the science because they don’t believe a cloth mask and Pfizer can “beat” a respiratory virus also seem to believe men can get pregnant.
Such a marginal view would be mercilessly ridiculed and ridiculed in a decent country, but our elites have worked tirelessly to legitimize this view. They have turned pronouns from an essential part of grammar into a sign of cultic obedience. They use distorted language and confusing terms such as “people capable of pregnancy” to describe women and “prostate owners” to refer to men.
But the worst thing about the trans death cult is its effects on the human body. Thousands of people – including minors – have had their bodies destroyed through invasive surgeries. Teenage girls have received “gender-affirming” hysterectomies and double mastectomies. Life-changing surgeries normally performed on women battling fibroids and cancer are now being performed on youth to the applause of medical associations, public health officials, big tech, big business, Hollywood and the current government.
It should come as no surprise that the nation’s largest abortion provider is now one of the biggest players in the transindustrial complex. Teens can now enter and exit Planned Parenthood facilities with cross-sex hormones and puberty blockers. The organization turns the children they failed to destroy in the womb into lifelong patients, many of whom mutilate their bodies and have struggled with medical complications and emotional trauma for decades.
The cult of the dead is also visible outside of medical facilities. Politicians and intellectuals who promote drug use in the name of “harm reduction” promote destruction in the name of compassion. The same goes for elected officials and activists who coddle criminals and punish law-abiding citizens who don’t want to be victims.
Our media and entertainment industry provides the soundtrack to our death march. Rappers who have spent decades glorifying death and destruction will be rewarded with the Super Bowl halftime period. Lil Nas X and Demi Lovato Use their music to promote satanic imagery, knowing that theirs criticism will be the ones accused of fear mongering and intolerance.
This cultural disease is the natural result of rejecting God in favor of a worldview that hates order and boundaries. The shift in abortion rhetoric from “safe, legal, and rare” in the 1990s to “scream your abortion” in the 2020s should serve as a stark reminder of how quickly a culture can lose its moral compass.
What we need today more than ever is a coherent, life-affirming vision of the future and people who are not afraid to publicly promote it. Young people need to know that they are created in God’s image, all life has inherent value, the human body is purposeful, sex is never “accidental,” marriage is good, and children are bliss.
You must know that promoting a life culture is a far better option than joining a death cult.
