I was not at all surprised at the reaction of the members of the two major political parties when the Supreme Court, according to a leaked document, decided to overturn Roe v. Wade. This issue has fallen along party lines for almost fifty years. However, for my own knowledge, I watched the reactions of members of the Senate to this ruling, which was again, not surprising. Members of the pro-abortion party were very angry that the rights and privacy of women would now be violated, and their health care would be negatively impacted. Not one word, of course, about the children who were being killed by virtue of the Supreme Court decision in 1973. After a few of them had spoken, I clearly saw another reason these men and women were angry: The number of babies being killed might be reduced. What kind of person would be angry about the possible reduction of the killing of children? That is when I began to understand that these were not just people who had a difference of opinion about pregnancies, they were powerful leaders who were evil.

Please allow me to explain.

It is illegal in the United States to kill eagles or destroy their eggs. It is also illegal to kill loggerhead sea turtles or destroy their eggs. The reason for that is if the egg is destroyed, the animal is destroyed. Eggs are how eagles and turtles come into being. This is logic that a six-year-old child can comprehend. Why can’t these political leaders grasp it? They cannot grasp it because they think they possess answers to moral issues, but they are living in darkness and cannot see. Their hearts have been hardened by sin because they are far away from the life that is in God. Their idea of what life is, is dark and without understanding.

“Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds. They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart” (Ephesians 4:17–18).1

They suppress the truth. In this case, about the murder of innocents. Instead of murder, they attempt to redefine this horrendous act, calling it health care.

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth” (Romans 1:18).

These folks don’t want moral purity or chastity. Don’t have intercourse unless you’re married and thus reduce abortions? They would laugh at you in derision. They despise sexual innocence. They prefer sensuality.

“They have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of impurity” (Ephesians 4:19).

Paul wrote under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit:

“And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done” (Romans 1:28).

Here is the constellation of meanings around the word “debased” from a Greek-English lexicon:

Unqualified. Unfit. Worthless. Failed.2

Yet, these dark, lifeless, debased folks are powerful leaders in our nation.

What is a righteous man or woman to do?

First, knowing God is compassionate and that we were also once lost and in darkness, we should pray that the Lord will forgive and save them. Second, we can vote them out. Barring that, we will pray to our Father and ask Him to give us a righteous government that gives heed to His law. Pray that the breaking of the Lord’s sixth commandment will no longer be tolerated anywhere in the land. Ask Him to forgive us and be merciful to us for this horrible sin that has caused millions of helpless babies to be slaughtered and to bring massive repentance to this nation.
