The Supreme Court of the United States has just finished hearing arguments in Dobbs v Women’s Health.
This is potentially the most significant opportunity to overturn Roe v Wade and Doe v Bolton. The arguments have been made but even as we listened to the arguments it seems clear that this is also very much a spiritual question. Logic and science tell us that the human embryo (Greek for infant) and the foetus (Latin for infant) are humans and therefore “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights” and “among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
That a society would permit the wholesale slaughter (about 1.5 million abortions annually since 1973) of human beings simply because they are inconvenient and too small to defend themselves speaks to a deep spiritual sickness. No court can remedy that sickness. Only the Holy Spirit can change human hearts—and he regularly and mysterious does. Let us pray that he does, both on the court and in the home.
