It's Time for States to End Abortion
Written By: Dr. Patrick Jonston | Posted: Tuesday, August 28th, 2012
With the U.S. Supreme Court, dominated by Republican-appointed judges, giving its nod to Obama's pro-abortion healthcare plan (which was similar to Romneycare), maybe we can finally stop trying to wait for the Supreme Court's permission to protect liberty. Maybe we can finally stop trying to put our efforts and our funds into getting a Republican in the White House to finally appoint judges who aren't pro-abortion communists.
Never has there been a better time to ride the wave of "nullification" and "state sovereignty" to liberty and justice for all preborn children. People all over the country are awakening to the fact that Washington's leaders refuse to restore our lost liberties. They refuse to balance the budget, curb over-sending, and halt the deceptive weights and measures of the Federal Reserve. Rather, Washington's leaders continue to deprive us of our God-given and constitutionally-protected rights to life, liberty, and property.
State resistance is the best way to protect liberty now. The long forgotten Christian "doctrine of interposition" shows the path home. (Listen to the sermon on the subject of interposition from Pastor Matt Trewhella for a greater understanding of this doctrine.) States should ignore the Supreme Court and refuse to adopt Obamacare mandates, just as the leaders of Texas and Wisconsin have done. Similarly, states should ignore the unlawful and unconstitutional Roe v. Wade decision and shut down all child-killing facilities. It's that simple.
It worked with medical marijuana. In 2001 and 2005, the Supreme Court ruled that states may not violate federal policy and allow medical marijuana. Yet presently 14 states have legalized medical marijuana. (If only pro-lifers would be as ambitious in trying to stop little babies from being cut to pieces as pot-smokers are to smoke pot!)
It's what happened in the states during the slavery abolition movement - states like Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin refused to enforce the Supreme Court's Dred Scott decision. Wisconsin even ruled the Fugitive Slave Act unconstitutional. Pastors urged their states to resist the Supreme Court's tyranny. States are not bound to enforce or accept unlawful or unconstitutional decisions belched out of Washington, D.C.
Ohio is one of eight states presently gathering signatures to protect every preborn child in their lawful jurisdiction. This is the foremost obligation of good government, and the most important thing states can do to avert judgment for the shedding of innocent blood and obtain the blessing of God and liberty on us and our posterity. Thomas Jefferson said, "The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government."
If we don't stop the shedding of innocent blood, we don't deserve liberty. We don't deserve a free market. We don't deserve low taxes. We don't deserve the First Amendment freedom of speech or the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. If we want freedom, we must protect the freedom of the "least of these.
God's Word tells us that it is not His will that one of these children should perish (Matt. 18:14). Moreover, Scripture teaches that if we ask anything according to His will, believing that we have received it, we will have it (Mark 11, I John 5). Pray and believe with us for "liberty and justice for all" in Ohio. Stretch your faith to pray and believe for justice in your state.
