We welcome you to WOM, where we are overcoming through the power of the Word. May God bless you richly today.
On Friday June 24, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the faulty 1973 decision that created a “right” to abortion and inserted it into the Constitution. At the same time, World Net Daily (WND) published an article about recent data which shows an increase in the total number of abortions in the United States. The data by the pro-choice Guttmacher Institute shows that there were 930,160 abortions in the US in 2020, compared to 862,320 in the organization’s last report in 2017. This represents an 8 percent increase and the first major uptick in the U.S. in three decades.
In addition, the report shows that apart from a slight rise in the mid-2000s, the number of abortions had been falling gradually since 1990, when there were 1,608,600 abortions. “Nearly a million American children won’t be here to say their first words or walk their first steps because they were killed by abortion in 2020,” said Lila Rose, founder and president of Live Action. “The human tragedy of this alleged increase in abortion cannot be overstated. The 8 percent increase in abortions,” she noted, “was accompanied by a 6 percent decline in births in the U.S. The abortion ratio also increased, from 18.4 percent in 2017 to 20.6 percent in 2020 – meaning that one in five pregnancies ended in abortion. These numbers are a searing indictment of our society and a harsh picture of our civilizational atrophy towards the ability to love and care for our children,” said Lila Rose.
Shortly after the Supreme Court’s ruling, the Satanic Temple issued a statement insisting that it is recognized by the IRS “as a religion,” and since it considers abortion a religious “ritual,” those procedures must be allowed under federal law. “The Satanic Temple members should be permitted a religious exception to perform The Satanic Temple’s religious abortion ritual,” the organization stated. They said that they are researching the possibility of setting up their own “religious abortion facilities.”
It has been noted that America has some of the highest abortion rates and most extreme pro-abortion laws in the world. But this ruling by the Supreme Court is a move in the right direction. Of course it does not mean there will be no more abortion, it just simply means that states will be allowed to regulate it through their legislatures, and elections. Nevertheless, there are some states in which it will be totally outlawed. And for this, we give God thanks. So as we celebrate 246 years of independence, we give praise to God that abortion is no longer a federal law in our nation. Amen!!!
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!
