On Friday, June 24, the United States Supreme Court’s decision with Dobbs v. Jacksons Women’s Health Care ended the 1973 Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decision allowing abortion on demand with no restrictions. The present court saw no abortion rights in the United States Constitution. They ended a bad decision of the 1973 court. Had the founding fathers wanted abortion in the constitution they could have entered that right. The founding fathers knew women gave birth to babies not puppies or kitties. No one would even think of actually killing an unborn baby. But in 1973 progressive thought made the constitution subject to a “living, breathing” constitution. Pulling from the Fourteenth Amendment due process clause and individual rights inherent in the Constitution, the 1973 court decided abortion on demand with no limits. Since then pro-life states have chipped away on abortion rights but never ending it. Finally, with the nomination of three pro-life justices, the court saw the Constitution had no inherent right to abortion. Abortion is not outlawed, just handed to the states.

Michigan has an 1846 law outlawing abortion and a 1931 law putting teeth into prohibiting abortion. Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, went to Court of Claims Judge Elizabeth Gleicher who said the 1931 law was too vague.

Attorney General Nessel was supposed to defend the law but she had stated she would not. Hopefully, our state legislators will defend state law. Nessel abdicated her duty to defend Michigan laws, picking and choosing what laws she likes or not likes—hardly an honest attorney general.

Gov. Whitmer said she would “fight like hell” to promote abortion. How both of them so rabidly endorse the killing of an unborn baby should make anyone with any moral compass to shutter.

If anyone saw how heinous an abortion is they would run away. That’s just what people do when viewing abortion details.

Right now those who believe in life need to pray. For those who see nothing wrong with killing unborn infants, I say you are the most pitiable people on earth, if they can be called “people.”
