A RESTATEMENT OF TRUTH: WHEN A CHILD BECOMES A CHILD
The right to life is at the core of all that real America is about. This was made a matter of record in our Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” This statement capsulizes the environment of thought in which our nation was birthed; a consensus of thought that went unchallenged in this country for nearly two hundred years with the exception being mostly those who were associated with society’s lunatic/criminal fringe.
The history of the first human being ever born on earth reads like this: “Eve conceived and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord” (Gen. 4:21). Genesis 21:2 says, “Sarah conceived and bare Abraham a son.” The Bible speaks of different women saying specifically that, “twins were in her womb.” Throughout the Bible, at the point of their conception, women are spoken of as conceiving — not a “blob of tissue,” not a “fetus,” not a “potential human life,” but a “child,” a "man," a “Son,” a “daughter.” Americans, Christians and non-Christians, throughout most of our history, have believed this. Any other position was basically relegated to the category of being godless idiocy.
This thinking began to change less than fifty years ago when the unconstitutional ruling of the Supreme Court known as Roe vrs. Wade brought a tsunami of evil into our society and the killing of some 63 million babies. Now, thanks to massive public school propaganda, media indoctrination, and godless governmental policy tens of millions of young and not so young Americans deny the humanity of a child in the womb and believe the right to kill it is a matter of an individual's choice and personal covenience. As crazy as it is, many now believe that abortion was one of the liberties our forefathers fought for; a freedom they entrusted posterity to preserve.
The fact is, that at the point of conception, a woman begins carrying a living, breathing child in spite of its being smaller than the tiniest seed. This didn’t become any less true in 1973 with Roe vrs. Wade And the recent Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe vrs. Wade hasn’t made it any more true. This has always been, and always will be, true. It’s a truth that can’t be restated too often.
