‘FRIEND OF THE COURT’ BRIEF FILED IN CASE THAT COULD OVERTURN ROE V. WADE

Lord, we pray that You would soften the hearts of the justices on the Supreme Court so that they too would value life. We pray the 'friend of the court' briefing would be the answer to ending abortion here in the U.S.

In March 2020, the Supreme Court will rule on the constitutionality of Louisiana’s new abortion law, which requires that physicians doing abortions have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic.

Under the leadership of House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, an amicus—”friend of the court”—brief supporting the law was just filed, signed by 207 members of Congress, 39 senators, and 168 House members.

A press release from Scalise summarizes the arguments made and lists a number of conservative organizations supporting the brief, one of which is my organization—the Center for Urban Renewal and Education.

What makes this filing particularly interesting is not just the sheer volume of congressional signatories—almost 40% of the Senate and House combined—it’s also the fact that it goes further than just arguing support for the constitutionality of the Louisiana law to suggest that the widespread confusion regarding abortion law ties directly to the confusing basic premises under which abortion was found constitutional in the 1973 Roe v. Wade and the 1992 Planned Parenthood v. Casey decisions.

The brief urges the Supreme Court to cast new scrutiny on these two landmark decisions that have defined the abortion legal landscape.

Asking the Supreme Court to reconsider Roe v. Wade is provocative, to say the least. But it is also courageous and on target.

How can we possibly function as a nation when an issue as critical as abortion defies consensus as to its constitutional pedigree as well as its morality?. . .

Faulty premises will produce faulty results and output.

This is a pretty good summary of what has been happening to American culture since the Roe v. Wade decision. Once sanctity of life and its legal protections became ambiguous, our entire culture began to unravel.

The percentage of American adults married since Roe v. Wade has dropped by one-third. The percentage of children in households with married parents is down 15%, and the percentage of babies born to unwed mothers up over 300%.

The last decade, according the Census Bureau, is estimated to have the slowest 10-year growth in the U.S. population since the first census was taken in 1790.

The Census Bureau forecasts that by 2034, for the first time, there will be more Americans over age 65 than under 18.

And, of course, we cannot overlook the damage our national soul has incurred by looking away as 61,628,584 babies have been destroyed in the womb since 1973, as the Guttmacher Institute reports.

In the latest Gallup polling, 49% identified as pro-life and 46% as pro-choice. Fifty percent say abortion is “morally wrong,” and 42% say it is “morally acceptable.”

For the 47th time, hundreds of thousands will arrive in Washington for the March for Life, noting the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, Jan. 22, 1973.

There is growing appreciation for the notion that what’s driving a sense that something is wrong in our nation is ambiguity regarding the sanctity of life.

Let’s pray that the court heeds these 207 members of Congress and starts rethinking the Roe v. Wade decision.

  1. The Census Bureau forecasts that by 2034, for the first time, there will be more Americans over age 65 than under 18.

    Not when broken down by race. Hispanic/Mixed is filling the gap. The other side of this is that it takes the resources of 8 earths to raise a first world child from birth to 18. So please tell me, how is this a good thing? How is it moral to bring MORE people into this world, and further stress the earth?

    Other countries are also having issues with declines in the population, and the replacement rate has fallen below the sustainable levels.

  2. The night of May 14, 2018, I had been crying and repenting for the sin of abortion, on behalf of the country. I suddenly felt the Lord’s presence in the room. He showed me the process He goes through, when He creates and plans a life. I saw Him choosing personality traits, giftings….even red hair, curly red hair. He looked at me said, “I love red hair!” Then He showed me the birth. I saw Him leaning over the father’s shoulders, to see the child He had created. Such joy and delight was on His face. I understood that He is in the room, every time a child is being born! He is celebrating and blessing the family!

    I also suddenly felt his pain, when the enemy destroys these lives…like a dragon, snatching them out of His hands. He said, “I, myself, will stop it!” Then, the Lord showed me that He is using our country for His will. He has placed His protection over us and is intervening.

    “There will be a landmark decision” He told me. “They will not die but live.”

  3. Heavenly Father, in Jesus name, hear the prayers of Your people and uphold the sanctity of life, Your most precious gift. Send Your Holy Spirit to all who are tasked and restore Your holy order. Amen
