President Elect Trump’s “Contract With The American Voter: First 100 Day Plan” includes repealing Obamacare, implementing term-limits, banning federal employees becoming lobbyists and foreign lobbyists from raising money for American elections, lifting the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars’ worth of job-producing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal, building the wall on the southern border, reducing personal and corporate taxes, cancelling Obama’s actions on immigration and guns, suspending immigration from “terror prone” nations including a temporary moratorium on Muslims, cancelling all federal funding to sanctuary cities and,commencing the removal of the more than two million criminal illegal immigrants from the country and withdrawing from NAFTA and TPP.
And while this bold agenda is laudable on many levels and will go a long way in restoring law and order, checks and balances, economic prosperity, national security and American sovereignty, none of it, in my humble opinion, is as vital as restoring the right to life for all innocent human persons from conception to natural death and ending the Abortion Holocaust that has taken the lives of over 60,000,000 pre-born babies in our nation since 1973.
The Holy Scriptures say that “God hates the shedding of innocent blood.”
In order for America to “be great again” we must become good again.
And I humbly submit that we as a nation cannot become good again unless and until we acknowledge that our government has failed to protect the most sacred right any human being possesses-their right to their own lives-and end the bloodshed.
Many will assert that Mr. Trump has pledged to de-fund Planned Parenthood and appoint “pro-life judges.” As meritorious as both of these pledges may be, the truth is that Roe v Wade doesn’t have to be “overturned” for the mass slaughter of the most defenseless and innocent among us to come to an end. Unconstitutional court opinions such as Roe are not and never have been the “law of the land.”
The Dred Scott opinion concluded that banning slavery in any territory was a violation of the 5th Amendment because doing so supposedly denied property rights (of slave owners) without “due process” and has, to this day, not been “overturned” and nobody would argue that slavery is still “legal.”
Similarly, we don’t have to wait years for any court to “overturn” Roe for child murder via abortion to come to an end in this country! Child murder via abortion was, is and will always be murder and no individual federal or state government possesses the legal, moral or Constitutional authority to alienate the inalienable right to life for any reason.
The Founders and Framers were acutely aware that court opinions were not the “law of the land” and don’t supercede legitimately enacted laws, statutes and Constitutions.
“To consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions [is] a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. …The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots.” (Thomas Jefferson)
“…the judiciary, from the nature of its functions, will always be the least dangerous to the political rights of the Constitution. … [T]he judiciary … has no influence over either the sword or purse; no direction either of the strength or of the wealth of the society; and can take no active resolution whatever. It may truly be said to have neither FORCE nor WILL…” (Alexander Hamilton)
“..if the policy of the government, upon vital questions, affecting the whole people, is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court, the instant they are made, in ordinary litigation between parties, in personal actions, the people will have ceased, to be their own rulers, having, to that extent, practically resigned their government, into the hands of that eminent tribunal.” (Abraham Lincoln)
My hope and prayer is that those 100% pro-life without exceptions Christians such a Senator Jeff Sessions, VP Elect Mike Pence and Governor Mike Huckabee would help educate President Elect Trump on the lie of Judicial Supremacy (i.e., that the legislative and executive branches must obey every court opinion no matter how immoral, illegal, wicked and unconstitutional) and strongly encourage Mr. Trump to restore the right to life for all innocent human persons as his 1st official act as president as Governor Huckabee pledged to do during the first Fox News Presidential Debate last year.
It doesn’t matter how high the border fence or import tariffs are or how low tax rates are or how well negotiated our trade deals are or how strong our military is if we continue to permit the shedding of innocent blood.
Child murder via abortion is the single greatest moral atrocity in our nation’s history.
60,000,000 pre-born babies have been murdered in cold blood with the full consent and funding of the government.
10 times those murdered in the Holocaust!
It must END!
If President Elect Trump has any hope of “making America great again,” he must, as his first official act, issue a presidential finding similar to, America’s Independent Party presidential candidate Tom Hoefling whose pledge read:
“All officers of government in this country, in every branch, at every level, have as the first obligation of their sacred oath the protection of all innocent lives within their jurisdiction and that as president he will keep his oath.
Justice Blackmun, in Roe vs. Wade, admitted that “of course” the child in the womb is protected by the Fourteenth Amendment, if they are a person.
Since it is self-evident that they are a person, my first act as President, after having sworn the oath, will be to publish a presidential finding to that effect.
My second act will be to ask for the resignation of anyone in the executive branch who will not act accordingly.
My third act will be to order the closing of every abortion facility in the country, as per the explicit, imperative requirement of the Supreme Law of the Land.
‘No person shall be deprived of life without due process of law.’
‘No State shall deprive any person of life without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.’”
Of course, President Elect Trump will likely not take such bold action on his own.
It will be the duty of individual Christians, Christian pastors and Christian pro-life and pro-family organizational leaders to come along side Mr. Trump and demand he fulfill his sworn oath to enforce the God given right to life for all innocent human persons from conception to natural death in every state that fails to do so (sadly the case in all 50 states) and END the Abortion Holocaust in America as his first official act as president!
As my good friend Pastor Flip Benham, who founded Operation Rescue and baptized Norma McCorvey (“Jane Roe” in Roe v. Wade), has frequently stated, “abortion will only end when the church decides it should end.”
If not us, who?
If not now, when?
“I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live“ —Deuteronomy 30:19
