Roe v. Wade: Legalized Murder

Roe v. Wade: Legalized Murder
By Joseph Parker

“You shall not murder” – (Exodus 20:13).

“I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live, loving the Lord your God, obeying his voice and holding fast to him, for he is your life and length of days, that you may dwell in the land that the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them” – (Deuteronomy 30:19-20).

“They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons; they poured out innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was polluted with blood” – (Psalm 106:37-38).

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter” – (Isaiah 5:20).

Once again, the life issue is heavily in the news. After Texas passed and enacted a recent “heartbeat” bill, and with the Mississippi case that is about to be heard before the High Court, the cause of life is very much on the minds of our nation.

Many are excited about the progress for the cause of life that is being made. And many are very upset and disturbed about the recent developments in support of life.

Why is the passion so strong on both sides?

Many in our culture believe that the Word of God is true and is to be our standard. Many believers see the Word of God as our bottom line for right and wrong. (Exodus 20:1–17)

Faithful followers of Christ see that every life conceived is a precious life, a life made in the image of God. And they recognize that we are called to stand boldly and passionately for life. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

Tragically, there are many politicians, religious leaders, and other individuals who are demonically driven and ideologically misled who stand for the “right” to take the life of innocent children at will.

Possibly one of the most tragic realities surrounding the Roe v. Wade decision is this truth. The decision to legalize abortion was from the beginning wicked, misguided, and just wrong on so many counts.

Abortion is the deliberate and planned killing of an innocent human being. Well, the deliberate and planned killing of a human being is first-degree murder. And first-degree murder has been against the law for a long time.

Yet, through Roe v. Wade, it was decided that the specific form of murder that we call abortion was now “acceptable” and legal.

Again, Roe v. Wade should have never happened.

The Word of God very clearly and plainly states “You shall not murder” Exodus 20:13.

Murder always has been and always will be wrong. Taking the life of innocent human beings is wrong in every instance.

Roe v. Wade was a wicked decision on the part of the High Court. And the sooner we as a nation correct this error, the better off our nation will be.

Not only should it be overturned, it should have never happened.

After almost fifty years since the Roe v. Wade decision was handed down, we have seen the “legal” slaughter of more than sixty three million innocent babies.

All those lives have been lost after a few people in high places decided that when murder happens by way of abortion, it’s acceptable and legal.

Without question, Roe v. Wade is a wrong that definitely needs to be righted.

There is not a right way to do wrong.

Recently, after Texas passed and enacted their recent “Heartbeat” bill, the president issued this statement:

“We will launch a whole-of-government effort to respond, looking at what steps we can take to ensure that Texans have access to safe and legal abortions.”

Question: How can anyone ever call a procedure “safe” that always results in the brutal murder of an innocent baby – one hundred per cent of the time!

In other words, how do you “safely” murder an innocent human being?

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter” – (Isaiah 5:20).

There is so much spiritual blindness on the part of many who are irate at the thought of ending legalized abortion. Why are they so angry? What will happen if they don’t get what they want?

This is what will happen. Many babies will live. Many babies will get a chance to live a full and productive life. Many children will be afforded the opportunity to fulfill their God-ordained destiny in life.

How can people rage and fume when the unborn are afforded the opportunity to be born and live?
