The GOP has a made move to overturn Roe v Wade as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and 10 other GOP governors filed a petition with the Supreme Court Thursday.

While this may appear at first glance to be a move to outlaw abortion, it is actually an action that would leave regulation of abortion to the states.

The governors wrote:

“For too long, the Federal Government has dived (not just waded) into issues reserved to the States under the Constitution. Although those forays usually come from the political branches, they have, on occasion, come from this Court as well. Roe and Casey are quintessential examples of such misadventures. The Court should take this opportunity to correct the mistakes in its abortion jurisprudence and recognize that the text and original understanding of the Fourteenth Amendment have nothing to do with abortion. Rather than creating a federal constitutional right, the Court should leave regulating abortion to the States, where the people may act through the democratic process. This Court should hold as much—and in the process, help restore the constitutional (but currently disrupted) balance between the Federal Government and the States.”

Federal rules have overturned local desires to maintain morals and traditions by mandating that every state adheres to their ruling on what can be widely considered a hotly debated topic. GOP Governors are citing the U.S. Constitution and claiming the Federal Government has long overreached into issues that are reserved for the states to handle.

Ron DeSantis asks the Federal Government to correct their mistake in their abortion jurisprudence and recognize that the test of the Fourteenth Amendment has nothing to do with abortion.

Mississippi Attorney General Lyn Fitch says that some believe Roe v. Wade had settled the issue of abortion once and for all but in reality, it created a “special-rules regime for abortion jurisprudence”. She believes that this has caused laws that lack focus on their objective and stunt the advancement of society.

The Supreme Court will take the case. They have scheduled to hear arguments this fall in the first test of the 6-3 conservative court.

  • Abortion is not murder. A fetus is not considered a human life.
    If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman’s husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life. — Exodus 21:22-23

    The Bible places no value on fetuses or infants less than one month old.
    And if it be from a month old even unto five years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male five shekels of silver, and for the female thy estimation shall be three shekels of silver. — Leviticus 27:6

    Fetuses and infants less than one month old are not considered persons.
    Number the children of Levi after the house of their fathers, by their families: every male from a month old and upward shalt thou number them. And Moses numbered them according to the word of the LORD. — Numbers 3:15-16

    And the LORD said unto Moses, Number all the firstborn of the males of the children of Israel from a month old and upward, and take the number of their names. — Numbers 3:40

    God sometimes approves of killing fetuses.
    And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive? … Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. — Numbers 31:15-17

    (Some of the non-virgin women must have been pregnant. They would have been killed along with their unborn fetuses.)
    Give them, O LORD: what wilt thou give? give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts. — Hosea 9:14

    Yea, though they bring forth, yet will I slay even the beloved fruit of their womb. — Hosea 9:16

    Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up. — Hosea 13:16

    God sometimes kills newborn babies to punish their parents.
    Because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die. — 2 Samuel 12:14

    God sometimes causes abortions by cursing unfaithful wives.
    The priest shall say unto the woman, The LORD make thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when the LORD doth make thy thigh to rot, and thy belly to swell. And this water that causeth the curse shall go into thy bowels, to make thy belly to swell, and thy thigh to rot: And the woman shall say, Amen, amen. …
    And when he hath made her to drink the water, then it shall come to pass, that, if she be defiled, and have done trespass against her husband, that the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall rot: and the woman shall be a curse among her people. And if the woman be not defiled, but be clean; then she shall be free, and shall conceive seed. — Numbers 5:21-21, 27-28

    God’s law sometimes requires the execution (by burning to death) of pregnant women.
    Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot; and also, behold, she is with child by whoredom. And Judah said, Bring her forth, and let her be burnt. — Genesis 38:24

    The Psalmist prays that his enemies are aborted.
    Let every one of them pass away: like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun. — Psalm 58:8

    • You are completly and utterly wrong. All humans are created in the Imago Dei. Your distortion of scipture is straight from the pit of hell. If a misscarriage occurs on its own is one thing. If an infant with a beating heart is ripped apart in the fetus, it is murder. You must not fear God, for you are in for a horiffic eternity. Don’t say you haven’t been warned. Wouldn’t want to be you…

    • Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you. ” See, we all can read Scripture. You are using it to excuse the evil in your heart called murder.

  • “regulating abortion to the States”? No/never it must remain an individuals choice. No one, nor government, should have the right to control an individuals personal body choices.

  • I must certainly agree with Gov DeSantis and the other 10 Governors to eradicate the “Rode vs Wade.” Since the conception and ratification of such a Federal Act, the Federal Government has placed its boot on the neck of every single state thus, disabling state and all levels of local laws to regulate such a controversial act which, in fact, goes against many of the citizens’ values and religious principles.

  • WHY SHOULD AMERICAN TAXPAYERS HAVE TO PAY TO HAVE A BABY KILLED??? JUST BECAUSE A “NIGHT OF PASSION” CAUSED A PREGNANCY. THIS IS VERY UNCONSTITUTIONAL ON REPRESENTATION, AS THE TAXPAYER IS NOT BEING REPRESENTED DIRECTLY IN THE “PROCEDURE”. THE ONLY ONES MAKING $$$ ON THIS ARE THE ABORTIONISTS LIKE PLANNED PARENTHOOD. LET THESE SO CALLED WOMEN, WHO “MADE THE MISTAKE” PAY FOR IT COMPLETELY. THAT WOULD BE THE AMERICAN WAY OF FAIRNESS.

  • Illegal and/or Legal – both are sin *because* both a violation of biblical law, per 1 John 3:4.

    Case in point: the biblically seditious Constitution and anyone who swears allegiance to it and/or promotes it.

    Isaiah 33:22 and James 4:12 declare that Yahweh is the exclusive legislator. There are no others, period! Anyone who claims the title of legislator, particularly when his “laws”—whether commandments, statutes, or judgments—are inconsonant with Yahweh’s.

    Any legislation antithetical to Yahweh’s turns evil to good and good to evil (Isaiah 5:20). When man rejects Yahweh’s standard of morality, it is inevitable he will make legal what Yahweh has made unlawful (e.g., infanticide and sodomy) and make illegal what Yahweh has made and demands as lawful (e.g., mandatory biblical qualifications for civil leaders).

    Yahweh is the only lawgiver because as Creator He’s the only one with the authority to determine what is good and evil. His morals as codified in His commandments, statutes, and judgments determine what is right and left. Anything left of His right(eousness) is left, liberal, and ungodly.

    • There is not a national problem in America that cannot be traced back to either the constitutional framers’ sins of commission or their sins of omission.
      The framers’ sins of commission are evidenced in that there’s hardly an Article or Amendment that’s not antithetical, if not seditious, to Yahweh’s sovereignty and morality.
      Their sins of commission aside, the framers’ sins of omission—that is, their failure to establish government and society based upon Yahweh’s commandments, statutes, and judgments—alone sent America to the precipice of moral depravity and destruction she presently teeters on.
      Ask the millions of infants slaughtered in their mothers’ wombs if the constitutional framers’ failure to establish government on Exodus 21:22-23 and Deuteronomy 27:25 didn’t lead to their annihilation?
      There’s not one national problem in America today—government-financed in utero infanticide, sodomite “marriages,” Synagogues, Mosques, and Temples devoted to false gods dotting America’s landscape, America’s crumbling economy, runaway debt, and taxes on nearly everything, etc.—that cannot be traced back to the framers’ sins of omission.

    • “Case in point: the biblically seditious Constitution and anyone who swears allegiance to it and/or promotes it.”

      So you are saying that our brave military and all Americans are Biblically seditious?

      mmmmm. The only sedition going on here Ted is YOURS.

      Our Constitution is the FIRST and ONLY Constitution to recognize the sovereignty of God and to conform to His laws. Historical FACT.

      Our Founders faced down the giant. They took on Goliath (Great Britain).

      They were the Joshua’s and David’s of their day, and the American Revolution is one of the most inspiring David vs Goliath stories in all of history.

      Because they were willing to die for their FAITH and for “millions unborn.”

      They suffered and sacrificed in ways too horrible for us to even imagine nowadays.

      You really should show more gratitude for our Founders and veterans, ted.

      I for one and VERY PROUD of our Founders and of America.

      Stop trying to tear down the Constitution and America, taliban ted. You’re only helping the communists, islamic terrorists, the swamp and any other hostile enemies America is dealing with now.

      You need to repent.

    • Oh just stop calling our Constitution “seditious.” Your revisionist history is getting tiresome.

      God granted mankind FREE WILL. EVERY INDIVIDUAL has to be FREE TO CHOOSE God without any coercion at all. Especially from the government.

      Your way is just another form of tyranny. A “Christian sharia.”

      NO THANKS.

      Our Founders DIED and SUFFERED HORRIFICALLY for their faith, and for “millions unborn.”

      And you malign them to make $$$, and even worse, cherry pick the Bible to do it.

      Taliban ted, you really REALLY need to repent.
