This week’s Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is the biggest legal reversal since Brown v. Board of Education overturned racial segregation in schools.

This is not primarily a victory for Republicans or Conservatives. It is a resounding victory for millions of unborn children who will now live out their God-ordained lives.

Friday’s decision is a sobering reminder of the 50 years of devastation that Roe v. Wade left in his wake. Sixty-three million children have been murdered in the womb since 1973. Without question, abortion has been the greatest moral stain on our nation in our history.

SUPREME COURT OVERHEADS ROE V. WADE IN HISTORIC OPINION

However, as momentous as the decision in Dobbs is, we must remember that this is not an outright national ban on abortion. By quashing Roe v. Wade, the Court simply returned the power to regulate abortion to the state level. There will be an intense battle fought in all 50 states over this burning issue. The pro-life cause has won an important battle, but the war is far from over. Those who enjoy life cannot afford to tire of doing good.

Roe’s overthrow is also an affirmation of the right and responsibility of Christians to engage in the political process. There’s only one reason Roe was overthrown: In 2016, conservative Christians worked together to elect Donald Trump, and President Trump delivered on his promise to appoint pro-life justices to the Supreme Court. Both left and right agree that if Hillary Clinton had been elected, Roe would still be the law of the land today.

This week’s historic decision reminds us that elections have consequences. Elected leaders determine policies that can influence the moral and spiritual direction of a country. In the 1940s, German Christians (with few exceptions) remained silent when Adolf Hitler came to power.

Fortunately, Christians in our country have refused to remain silent about the genocide of unborn children. Together they effected a change in leadership that in turn led to a change in policy that will save millions of lives.

Jesus called Christians to be both salt and light in Matthew 5. In Jesus’ day, salt was a preservative. Although it could not prevent the decomposition of meat, it could delay the decomposition of meat.

Likewise, Jesus left his disciples here on Earth to delay the cultural and moral decay of our society so that we might have more time to present the hope and forgiveness that Christ offers to all.

But for the salt to do its preserving job, it has to come out of the salt shaker and into the meat. Fortunately, millions of Christians have come out of the pews and entered the political world, culminating in this week’s historic Supreme Court decision.

Just as Christians paved the way for the abolition of slavery and the fight for civil rights, Christians of this generation have been instrumental in protecting our most fundamental right, the right to life. .
