Pastor offers reminder that end to Roe does not end abortion

“So, Roe vs. Wade has been overturned. Hallelujah! The bloodshed of the preborn isn’t going to end though. They’re going to continue to be butchered in this nation. Even those states which claim to be against abortion are going to say, ‘but you can kill this group, you can kill this group, you can kill this group,’” said Pastor Matt Trewhella in a video responding to the news that the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe vs. Wade on Friday.

 

Justice Samuel Alito called Roe “egregiously wrong from the start,” and he was correct. That 1973 opinion has been panned by so many legal scholars, even many on the left, as being on legally shaky ground with no legal arguments but rather subjective, emotional tripe.

 

But the “right” has been so wedded to the idea that ending Roe is the penultimate when it comes to the issue of abortion, otherwise known as murder of innocent babies, when nothing could be further from the truth. Trewhella, author of The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrate: A Proper Resistance to Tyranny and a Repudiation of Unlimited Obedience to Civil Government, provided a reminder.

 

“For nearly fifty years, the pro-life, pro-family groups, the ones who claim to be for the pre-born, hid behind the lie of judicial supremacy saying, ‘We have to wait till the court undoes Roe to see the pre-born protected’ while murder is actually going on,” Trewhella said.

 

Trewhella noted that 38 times the Supreme Court has upheld Roe. This is despite majority Republican picked justices have dominated that court through nearly the entirety of that time. That is also despite even staunch pro-choice legal scholars admitting Roe was garbage.

 

“So, here’s what’s going to happen, just so you know,” Trewhella said. “You’re now going to see what your Republican representatives at the state level are really like. They no longer have the lie of judicial supremacy to hide behind, you know where they’ve told you for years, ‘Well, I’m against abortion but the Supreme Court has ruled and alls we can do is obey.’”

 

Trewhella added: “Now that they don’t have that lie to hide behind anymore, you’re going to see how they come up with exception after exception after exception in murdering these helpless, preborn children. You’re going to see that they don’t have fealty to Christ nor to the preborn neighbor.”

 

Wyoming is one of 13 states with trigger laws to outlaw most, not all, murders of the unborn once Roe was overturned, and some other states have laws still on the books predating Roe that outlawed abortion. In Wyoming, it’s trigger law allows exceptions for rape and incest.

 

Of course, those unborn children conceived in rape and incest are innocent human beings as well and deserve protection, and as Wyoming News reported last week, women who have aborted their children conceived in rape and further traumatized and harmed, according to court testimonies.

 

Trewhella said now is the time to hold the politicians accountable. Today, most so-called “pro-life” states will allow the murder of unborn if conceived in rape or incest. What will be the next exception and the exception these “pro-lifers” will accept in the years to come.

 

Beyond that, talk radio host Tony Arterburn questions the timing of this opinion. He noted that this Supreme Court has just recently allowed the government to shut down churches over a virus while allowing casinos to stay open. He noted that this Supreme Court has allowed the government to force government workers to submit to experimental, abortion-tainted, gene therapy shots as well as said they can mandate it on private employees so long as it goes through the U.S. Congress first.

 

“Well, I’m not spiking the football because if you’re like me, you’re wondering how did this happen…. There’s something else to this,” Arterburn said. “I think we’re going to have to deal with a stacked Supreme Court. That’s coming. They’re going to do everything they can to stack the Supreme Court because they’re whipping up their base into a frenzy.”

 

“If you think this is over, it’s not over but it’s a new beginning,” Arterburn added.

 

Arterburn suggests that in the short-term this may protect some babies from being slaughtered, but in the long-term he believes the number of abortions in America will not fall.

 

Wyoming News previously reported that Tesla pays for employees to travel out of state to have their babies murdered. CNN reported on various other corporations doing the same including Microsoft, Apple, Meta, Yelp, Disney, Uber, Netflix, Bumble, Match Group, Box.com, Levi Strauss, Comcast-NBC Universal, Warner Bros Discovery, Condé Nast, JP Morgan Chase, Nike, Starbucks, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Kroger, Alaska Airlines, Goldman Sachs and Zillow.

 

Meanwhile, leftist states like California are planning to steal taxpayer dollars to fly and house women from out of state to have their babies killed.

 

So, how long will it take the death industry to figure out how to deal with this new landscape and make sure the slaughter continues? And how much easier will it be for them to figure out the logistics if the conservatives somehow think babies will be protected because of this opinion striking down Roe?

 

In the early 2000s when the GOP controlled both houses of Congress and the presidency, then Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) submitted H.R. 300, We the People Act, that would have legislatively overturned Roe because, as the act cited, “Congress has constitutional authority… to correct abuses of judicial power and continuing violations of the Constitution of the United States by Federal courts,” under Article III, section2 of the U.S. Constitution.

 

Paul, and others, have championed the Life at Conception Act, that would give legal definition to life as beginning at conception meaning the unborn would have personhood status.

 

“A society that readily condones abortion invites attacks on personal liberty,” Paul wrote in Liberty Defined. “If all life is not precious, how can all liberty be held up as important? It seems that if some life can be thrown away, our right to personally choose what is best for us is more difficult to defend. I’ve become convinced that resolving the abortion issue is required for a healthy defense of a free society.”

 

Ending Roe does not resolve the issue of abortion. It was the right thing to do and the Supreme Court should be recognized for overturning that asinine and ludicrous opinion, but the fight to end the murder of the unborn is most definitely not over.

 

Abortion has always been illegal because all 50 states criminalize murder. We don’t need laws outlawing abortion, we need legal recognition of the unborn as a human life worthy of all the legal rights recognized for humans.

 

Remember, the word “fetus” means “unborn child” from its Latin meaning. A child is a human
life. Humans are created in the image of God. Children conceived in rape or incest are not guilty of the crimes of the father. Abortion is the taking of human life. Abortion is murder, including in the cases of rape and incest.
