Supreme Court and the Mississippi Abortion Law

What is this case all about?

  • The Mississippi law, which makes most abortions illegal after 15 weeks of pregnancy, is a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade.
  • Roe, is the 1973 decision that established a constitutional right to abortion and barred states from banning the procedure before fetal viability.
  • At stake is the state’s right to legislate abortion. Is abortion really a constitutionally protected right?

According to New York Times reporter, Carl Hulse, the Supreme Court is likely to release its decision in the case at the end of its term in June or early July. In the meantime, America is talking about women’s rights and the rights of the unborn child. At least we’re talking about it. And that’s my point. We should be talking about it.

At some point, we have to think about what abortion really is before we can honestly decide how we feel about it and judge its merits. We can’t shut out reality just because we have good reasons to help out a woman with an unwanted pregnancy.

In my view, whether it happens at 15 weeks gestation or 24 weeks, it’s still taking a human life. Does anyone argue with that? And that’s the real issue, isn’t it? Should it be legal to take a human life? Should it be a constitutional right?

We have to lay the cards on the table. We have to look at all the facts, not just the ones that support our opinion. We must carefully consider the evidence provided by both sides.

Although it is tragic if a woman dies from an illegal abortion, it is still important to look at some of the facts we may rather not face. Especially the fact that that is your baby growing inside of you. The following link describes the growth of your unborn child.


What God says:

Psalm 139:13-16 “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.”

God was intentional in every aspect of our individual creation. He has a plan and purpose for every human life from conception.

Let’s think about this…

With Love, Cindy

  1. All have to understand when a woman is rape and carrying the rapist child is a horrible thing to live with as well as when the mom who wants the child is told that her baby will not live once it is born and they must make a decision her own life or that baby I do know of someone that happened to. Understand we as humans do not have the right to judge another only God does. I was raped and Praise God I didn’t get pregnant however I have lived with that pain for years and yes I went through counseling.

        1. My motivation in writing this piece was never to condemn, but to present truth. God’s forgiveness is available for all who ask. Paul said he was the worst of sinners. God forgave him as an example of his mercy and kindness.

          1. Agreed however too many Christians always judge many have judge my daughter who had cancer and us telling her she has sinned because she has cancer even though she had been sick most of her life. She was a conjoined twin and I lost her sister when I carried them. I only prayed that more Christian would show mercy and compassion instead of judgement

            1. You are right. Too many Christians judge others. We should have mercy and compassion. To love God is to love others. I’m sorry that your daughter was told such cruel things. The Bible does NOT teach that she became sick because of sin. How could anyone ever say such a terrible thing?! May God bless you and your family, Eileen.

              1. Thank you Cindy, it is so amazing how many have judge us or more important her. I don’t understand why Victoria is so sick and why hasn’t God heal her yet, my this I do know is that God’s ways and His thoughts are better than mine. Regardless of what may happen God’s love is unconditional for my daughter and His love for her is greater than mine and my husband’s love, and I am the bless one that God has chosen to be her mom.

                1. I will pray for you and your daughter. I can’t imagine how hard it has been for you. I have children. I know what it’s like to have a mother’s love. Nothing is like it. It’s like a mamma bear! (I hope this makes sense!) Love you, sweet Eileen. May God bless you and your family every day!
