"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." — (The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., from, "Letter from a Birmingham Jail," April 16, 1963)
One must now ponder more deeply this question: How can the American Dream, and the dream of the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. survive if we literally murder our children?
Roe is no more!
The Supreme Court justices’ reversal of Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973) with the critical Dobbs decision today is a victory for civil rights for the unborn.
Sending the discussion of life versus abortion back to the states will help "We the People" on the state level grow to ensure that every unborn baby has the civil right to life.
Human dignity begins in the womb.
Today the new civil rights struggle of our time is for what may be described as "womb equality," as well as the right to life for unborn children — who are aborted each year.
This premise asserts that we are not colorblind. We see and value the gifts of ethnic diversity. We see every human, born and pre-born, as created in the image and likeness of God. All pre-born children should first be given the chance to be born and live flourishing human lives.
As such, every American must face the reality that civil rights begin in the womb; as long as a baby can be legally killed before birth, there are no such things as civil, or other, rights.
Abortion is a hate crime. As individual ethnic groups and social justice communities fight for "hate crime" legislation, we must stop the violence and killing of our weakest; those unborn.
Even as battles for "gun control" ensue today, we should acknowledge that abortion is also a weapon, one destroying so many lives.
A scalpel, shot or pill can be as deadly as a gun. At last count Roe has effectively sanctioned the legal killing of more than 63 million innocent children in America.
Unfortunately, in America today, the most fundamental right to life has been non-existent for nearly 50 years since Roe.
Again, let’s examine the truth. Since that fateful decision, more than 63 million babies have been aborted in the United States — this crime against humanity remains a stain on our moral conscience and a tragedy that we allowed to happen in our nation, on our watch.
Another tragedy is that those who so often claim to act in defense of "civil rights" for minority communities remain conspicuously silent about the disparate effect abortion has on Blacks.
For example, approximately 663 Black babies are aborted daily; this totals over 240,000 Black babies each year.
Any genuine discussion about civil rights in America today must center around abortion.
Nothing has wreaked havoc on the Black community and destroyed Black lives more than the abortion industry. Of course racism, transgender surgery for children, human trafficking, poverty — and other ills — and the racist Critical Race Theory (CRT) agenda are often cited; and must be addressed.
Yet, all too often, abortion is not included in the list of crimes against humanity.
Abortion is an injustice against the civil rights of the least among us.
Abortion is systemic racism. A baby in the womb, no matter the skin color, is a child to be protected rather than a legal "choice" to be made.
Cloaking the killing of innocent babies in the guise of women’s rights and reproductive justice does a disservice to the babies, their biological parents, to the human race; and to God.
This favorable decision allows the states to reconsider the critical life issues America is facing would be a blessing.
Meanwhile, while we are celebrating the Dobbs decision, my sister in Christ — Ginger Howard and I are graduating Saturday. As authors of the book, "We're Not Colorblind," Ginger and I will both receive honorary doctorates from Aidan University.
Please pray with us as we embark on the new paths of our Christian journey; sometimes together, but always in Christ.
For 49 years, We the People have had to endure flawed and unconstitutional rulings from the Supreme Court, allowing unelected jurists to create a national right to abortion that ultimately led to extreme actions, like late-term abortions, against the unborn.
Today, the Supreme Court has rightfully overturned that decision, sending the power to regulate abortion back to the elected officials at the state level.
I have longed for and prayed for this day. And I will continue to fight for human dignity for everyone — from womb to tomb.
This month, we have celebrated Juneteenth and Fathers Day.
Today we thank God for more protection for life, from birth to death, with the favorable Dobbs decision. A Ruling for life.
