Tuesday marks the 40th anniversary of the most tragic Supreme Court decision in American history, Roe v. Wade. The primary issue remains the right to life affirmed in our Declaration of Independence -- a right tragically denied to the more than 55 million unborn babies sacrificed on the altar of "choice" since 1973. One political party advocates this at all costs, while calling for Liberty-infringing gun control in the name of saving "even one child's life." How disgustingly hypocritical.
It has always been evident to us, scientifically, morally and logically, that life begins at conception. For the last word on the matter, we consult our Creator's guidebook. The Psalmist wrote, "For You formed my inward parts; you wove me in my mother's womb." He then noted, "Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were written all the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them." Imago Dei!
The Alabama Supreme Court agreed on Friday, ruling that "unborn children are persons with rights that should be protected by law." The case centered on two women who took illegal drugs while pregnant. One of the children was born prematurely and died of "acute methamphetamine intoxication." The Court's ruling is a great victory for life.
