“There are those that believe that a new modernity demands a new morality…there is no such thing as a new morality. There is only one morality, all else is immorality. There is only true Christian ethics over against which stands the whole of paganism. If we are to fulfill our destiny as a people, we must return to the old morality, the sole morality.”
Teddy Roosevelt, Johnson, David, Theodore Roosevelt; American Monarch , 1981, p. 44

In their arguments supporting the right for women to kill the small person inside of their wombs, one of the precedents the supreme court used was the fact that ancient Rome and Greece allowed abortion and infanticide;
“…Abortion was practiced in Greek times as well as in the Roman Era…. Greek and Roman law afforded little protection to the unborn.” Roe vs Wade, 1973
Now this is interesting, because Rome did not recognize the right to life mentioned in the Declaration of Independence. The Declaration of Independence clearly speaks forth our founders faith that some rights were unalienable because they were God given. In Rome, the government was god. In fact a person could be executed for not worshiping Caesar, as a god.
Rome also did not recognize the rights of slaves, and as many historians have given witness to, they built Rome on the back of slavery. Only those of Judeo/Christian societies ever recognized the evils of slavery and fought against it. So why did this errant bunch of lawyers, robed in the garments of the Supreme Court have to go to Rome to justify their case? Simply because every state in the union, as in all the original colonies, as in all of the Christian nations going back 2000 years; there existed laws against infanticide and abortion.
The Christian nations had always protected the life of the unborn and infant. It was one of the striking differences between Christendom and paganism, and the mark of a more humane and kinder society. All life from conception to the grave was protected.
So there already was an over riding precedent in America going back to the founding of the nation and before, in the Colonies; abortion was considered a violation of the infants God given right to life.
Do you think that’s funny or a minor issue? Don’t. The Government of the United States has now set a precedent indicating they have the right to abrogate human life, without due process. Right now it’s babies from the day of conception to birth. Don’t buy the lie that it’s only for the first tri-mester. Infants are routinely aborted from the first trimester through birth,(partial birth abortion) and the same law and arguments that supports one, supports the other.
And the government has no business in deciding the status of personhood. That remains outside of their realm. All we need to know is, is it human? If so then it is made in the image of God and cannot have it’s innate right to life set aside.
Who will be next? The old? The weak and infirm? The mentally handicapped? You? Yeah, it could be you. History shows that the first nations to legalize abortion were Stalin’s Russia and Hitler’s Germany. And look where they went. It was a bad day for Jews and anyone who wouldn’t bow their knee to the government.
Show some courage and fight now while you have the chance, with the power of the vote. Don’t support Roman senators for president or any office. Vote for those principles of life that this country was founded on. Our precedents should be those of our nations founders and based on their principles, not those of ancient Rome.
Or you could vote for men and women, who though brilliant and personable and otherwise admirable, are victims of modern academia so don’t have the vaguest notion of the difference between the foundation of Marxism and the foundation of the American Constitution.
But putting all rancor aside, as well as petty party politics, let me suggest you don’t do that. Only one world view has any basis for human rights. That lies in the faith that we are all created in the image of our Creator. Anyone that holds a different view, even though they profess to be and perhaps are Christian, is standing on an atheist platform. They are pro-choice just as the majority of the south was pro-choice.
This is your chance to shine. Would you have voted in favor of the choice to own slaves? If not I suggest you avoid voting for the freedom to kill babies in the womb. All though the choice is certainly yours.
