The Holiness of Life
Around January 22 of every year, I teach a Sanctity of Life lesson in my Bible Study class. You'll find the link at the bottom.
Christians around the world set this day aside back in 1973 when the Supreme Court decided abortion was legal. Since that decision, 63 million babies have lost their lives. Who knows? Perhaps one or more of these humans would have discovered the cure for cancer, dementia, or other terrible diseases.
After forty-nine years of people praying for it to happen, the present court has overturned the heinous decision made by the previous 1973 Court. I have no idea why it took God so long to answer the prayers of Christians. Scripture says a thousand years is like a day to God. Our Great Creator was putting events and people into place, and for Him, it wasn’t a long time.
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
So, what happens to women who want birth control by aborting an unborn baby?
They can continue to do this.
Abortion issues now return to the states. Each state will adopt legislation regarding when and if a legal abortion can occur. Some states currently permit legal abortion up to full term pregnancy—even to the instant of delivery. Other states allow abortion up to the first trimester.
If a female wants an abortion, she can have one, but she might need to travel to another state. If she can’t afford it, that’s no problem. New York is considering offering to pay travel and expenses for a woman to travel to their state to abort their baby. https://ag.ny.gov/press-release/2021/attorney-general-james-calls-state-funding-provide-abortion-access-women
Some companies are also providing travel expense for employees to have an abortion. https://thehill.com/business-a-lobbying/business-lobbying/3535965-these-companies-will-cover-abortion-travel-costs-for-employees/
Since this is the case, women can have abortion on demand within the United States, what is the big deal? No one took that ability away. The Supreme Court merely said abortion is not in the US Constitution. The Court sent it back to the states for the people to decided. The populous can vote in each state the limits of abortion. Abortion is not in a document, but in the hands people.
