End of an era

I am not a Trump fan and I expect I won’t be in the future either. But his single term in office directly resulted in the overturning of the national pro-abortion policy. And for that I am thankful.

I don’t know why no one else ever for president on a list of potential supreme court justice candidates. It was very perceptive of him to do that.

Also, I have some pride in being a resident of Mississippi, the state who’s actions prompted the recent court decision. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Attorney General is eventually elevated to governor or maybe into a D.C. position.

I wouldn’t call it pro-abortion. Nobody likes abortion or wants an abortion. What just happened was merely symbolic for middle class people (who can travel) and dangerous for poor people – especially the rural poor. Now if only the state govts would step up and make prenatal care fully funded as well as child care and pre-school.

As for Mississippi pride…

“House leadership killed a bill that would extend Medicaid coverage in a state known for its high maternal mortality rate”

“The news hit maternal health advocates hard in a state where deaths as a result of pregnancy are almost twice as high as the rest of the country, according to a 2019 report by the Mississippi State Department of Health. It’s also where 60 percent of deliveries are funded by Medicaid — much higher than the national average rate of 42 percent, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.”

Yeah, that’s pretty much been the argument all along: These poor kids would be better off dead. And it would be better if they were on purpose dead instead of accidentally dead.

I don’t find the reasoning in any way compelling.

Christians I used to know believe life on earth is nothing compared to billions of years of eternity. Christians I used to know believe that a dead fetus has a soul and that soul goes to heaven. No matter if stillborn, aborted, etc. – the soul is in heaven, a better place. Forever. By contrast, if the fetus becomes an adult who rejects the lord then the sentence is eternity in hell for that same soul. There is noting worse. So we have certainty of an eternity spent in heaven vs. a possibility of eternity in hell. The math is pretty simple. What this means is that, unless there is absolute certainty the future human adult accepts Jesus Christ, they would have been better off not being born at all. Which means more souls in hell than otherwise would have gone to heaven owing to the SCOTUS decision. (Also, we know in the OT bible God killed more unborn babies than anyone – because their parents were wicked they were drowned by God. These unborn souls went to heaven.)

(Your comment to my post did not address anything I posted about, which was the high mortality rate of pregnant women in MS and the care of children. Your choosing to completely ignore those issues is a statement in itself.)
