This morning, the Kansas Supreme Court wrote a right to murder a preborn human being into the state Constitution. Like most Christians, I’m sick over it. I’m sick for a different reason than most, however.
I’m sickened that we’ve treated this legislation from the bench as legitimate for 46 years. I’m sick of hearing pro-lifers talk like they’re the heirs of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and William Lloyd Garrison and then obey orders from rogue courts to allow mass murder; of pro-lifers obsequiously bowing in response to any and all edicts from our gods in black gowns.
Pro-life politicians, National Right to Life, and all the big pro-life orgs are going to kiss the court’s feet and come back with another good-for-nothing regulation like the one in dispute in this court case that does absolutely nothing except give them something to fundraise or grab votes off of.
How long until we stand up to the courts, nullify Roe, and abolish abortion? More than 61 million are dead already. How many have to die until we love our preborn neighbor as ourselves? 70 million? 100 million? 200 million? How high will the body count have to be before we reject the courts’ self-appointed authority to strip a class of human beings of all the rights of personhood?
I’ll quote The Federalist‘s Georgi Boorman:
“Imagine me taking you by the shoulders, shaking you vigorously, and saying, ‘WAKE UP – FOR GOD’S SAKE, WAKE UP!'”
The Washington Examiner‘s editorial did a good job exposing the woeful reasoning of the judges and the gravity of their error. However, it left much to be desired, as does virtually all conservative commentary on the judiciary. Demanding the judges’ names go down in infamy and vowing that the decision will one day be overturned are not enough. Human beings, image-bearers of the Divine, are being murdered right now.
There’s only one appropriate response to judges who do what the Kansas Supreme Court just did. First, impeach every one of them who voted to spit on humanity and count murder as a natural right. Secondly, and most importantly, outlaw abortion as murder effective immediately.
