The Supreme Court has not ended abortion in America

In the wake of the Supreme Court’s Dobbs ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, critics accused the White House of being caught flat footed. Since then, President Biden has signed an executive order designed to protect women’s access to abortion and is considering declaring a public health emergency over the issue. The Department of Justice has even created a task force to tackle abortion rights issues. Straight Arrow News contributor Star Parker says these actions will only further divide our country, because, despite what Biden says, the SCOTUS decision has not ended abortion in the U.S.

It is obvious that views on abortion are vast and can be inflaming. It is true that many American adults have mixed views on abortion and don’t want to dig deeply into the issue. It is also true that many who have had an abortion are wrestling emotionally today with their very personal decision headlining the front pages of news internationally.

So one would think that before the Biden administration moves so rapidly with attempts to codify abortion into national law, it would allow for democracy to work, which is to allow the citizens of each individual state to have their discussion about abortion in their state post Roe.

One challenge I have with President Biden is this rush of liberals to react with such intensity and aggression. It is not true that the Supreme Court decision ended abortion in the United States. It simply overturned Roe and Casey, which sent abortion lawmaking back to the states. All lawmaking is back in the states regarding abortion. But now President Biden’s overreaction has intensified debate here in Washington D.C. about the filibuster. Biden’s overreaction has started debate inside of this Beltway about rushed grants upwards of $3 million tax dollars to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Population Affairs. Why do we even have an Office of Population Affairs in America? 

The left is so insistent that abortion is a private matter between a woman and her doctor — oh, excuse me, a birthing person and its doctor — then why are these same liberals insisting on federal grants when abortion is such a private matter? Why would they need these grants to go through this Office of Population Affairs? The states now have the jurisdiction to regulate.

As now all Americans have been pulled into state-by-state discussions about abortion post Roe v Wade, why is President Biden and his left-wing administration so adamant to codify abortion into our national law?

My suspicions are that the Biden Administration and all of their pro-abortion ilk want to federally fund what many progressives and eugenicists are now saying out loud. Their once-hidden agenda has always been to kill off the feeble, the uneducated, the poor, or in the words of Margaret Sanger, “the human weeds.” That’s what’s really going on here.

It is unfortunate that these progressives and eugenicists have been so successful. Over the last 50 years, Planned Parenthood has specifically and aggressively targeted Black and Latino communities to lure poor young women into clinics to kill their offspring.  

According to the 2011 Abortion Surveillance Report issued by the Center for Disease Control, Black women make up 14 percent of the childbearing population, yet obtained 36.2 percent of reported abortions. 

Black women have the highest abortion ratio in the country, with 474 abortions per 1,000 live births. The percentages at these levels illustrate that some 19 to 24 million Black babies have been aborted since 1973.

And it is unfortunate that to gain political power and international fame, President Biden has cast aside his Catholic tradition of pro-life, to now become an instrument of pagans that throughout history, have targeted the most vulnerable women around the world to slaughter the most innocent growing in their womb.

The Supreme Court decision to send abortion discussions back to the states is today, settled law. The new debate Biden wants to have on a national level, although unnecessary, will be forcefully challenged. 

Yes, the pro-life community can and will fight in the states and at the national level, to make sure that abortion in America not just illegal, but unthinkable.
