Supreme Court Overturns Roe v. Wade
The Supreme Court overturned the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling on June 24 and returned the authority to regulate abortion to the people and their elected representatives. The justices ruled 6-3 to uphold the specific Mississippi abortion ban being challenged and 5-4 to overturn Roe v. Wade altogether. The majority opinion was written by Justice Samuel Alito, and it argues that the right to abortion is not deeply rooted in America’s history and is not protected by the 14th Amendment’s due process clause.
In other words, those who want abortion to be a legally protected right need to pass a law. They cannot rely on judicial activism to enforce a faux right that the elected representatives of the people refuse to endorse.
Fifteen states banned abortion as soon as the Supreme Court announced they could do so, while three other states reenacted previous restrictions on abortion superseded by the Roe v. Wade ruling. Women in these states will now have to travel to one of the 32 states where abortion is still legal if they want to kill their unborn child.
Many conservatives are elated with the Supreme Court’s ruling. President Donald Trump called the ruling “the biggest win for life in a generation,” while Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has declared June 24 an annual holiday for his agency. But the radical left is seething with rage. Former President Barack Obama slammed the Supreme Court’s decision, calling it an attack on “the essential freedoms of millions of Americans.”
Washington, D.C., police are mobilizing in anticipation of riots, while lawmakers are sounding alarms about more violence at Republican Party offices and pro-life organizations. The David Horowitz Freedom Center called the Supreme Court decision a “Fort Sumter moment,” comparing it to the spark that lit the Civil War. Yet conservatives are not likely to let threats of left-wing violence cow them into submission. Justice Clarence Thomas wrote in his concurring opinion that the same constitutional originalist rationale that allowed the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade should allow it to correct rulings that protect same-sex “marriage” and contraception access.
Overturning the Obergefell v. Hodges ruling that made same-sex “marriage” a legal right would make the radical left even more furious, but America may already be passed its Fort Sumter moment. Last December, Trumpet executive editor Stephen Flurry wrote that the Supreme Court was likely to start pushing back against the radical left’s ongoing coup—that is what the Supreme Court is doing—despite the threat of riots gripping the nation. In “Supreme Court Abortion Decision Could Lead to Much More,” he wrote:
For five years, my father, Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry, has taught that President Donald Trump is a modern fulfillment of the ancient Israelite King Jeroboam ii. He has repeatedly stated that 2 Kings 14:26 shows us that God used Mr. Trump to save America from the radicals and pointed to Amos 7:13 describing the king’s chapel and the king’s court.
My father explained in “Is America’s Supreme Court in Bible Prophecy?” that “the king’s chapel” is “a place of worship that belongs to the king,” and “the king’s court” (better translated “the kingdom’s court”) is a “non-religious entity … referring to the United States Supreme Court.” He wrote, “I believe this prophetic account in Amos 7 implies that there is a conservative advantage in the Supreme Court, one that favors Jeroboam. … The fact that [Justice Brett] Kavanaugh was actually confirmed, despite all the protests, shows that to be true. Radicals want to control the courts, especially the Supreme Court, and God upset those plans. He has a plan of His own. I believe Mr. Kavanaugh’s confirmation indicates God will likely see that President Trump has a second term.”
Roe v. Wade could never have been overturned without the three justices that President Trump appointed: Justice Neil Gorsuch, Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Justice Amy Coney Barrett. Now that these justices have joined with Justice Alito and Justice Thomas to undo Roe v. Wade, the floodgates are open to undo many more immoral and unconstitutional rules made over the past half-century. Keep watching for the Supreme Court to make rulings regarding the fraudulent 2020 election, by which Barack Obama seized power using the Joe Biden regime. And keep watching for the “king’s chapel” and “kingdom’s court” to develop a relationship with President Trump.
God has revealed that He will restore the rule of law in America—temporarily—so that the American people have one final chance to repent of their grievous sins! This astounding fact is fully explained in our new, significantly expanded America Under Attack, by Gerald Flurry.
