Today, the Supreme Court forced our nation to confront tens of millions of smothered voices.
For fifty years since Roe v. Wade coerced the states to accept its judge-made law, over 63 million children have been slaughtered by abortion—many of them from disadvantaged families, many of them people of color. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 19 out of every 100 pregnancies since 1973 have ended in an abortion. Initially hailed as a liberating device, the Big Lie that the dead, the aborted Americans, never existed brought forth an American (and global) subculture that copulation could be forever used pleasurably, regardless of the incumbent responsibilities and consequences surrounding it.
Today, the opinion of Justice Alito and the Court has forced a reckoning with the aborted of America. Decades of squandered humanity now command our nation’s attention. There can be no reparation for the aborted America beyond prayer; unlike other sins of our nation’s past, we cannot pretend to erase it through seminars, activism, performative service, or “equity.” These lives are forever wasted. Some will respond with joy to today’s decision; in many states, the verbal outcry of the living and the moral outcry of the dead will immediately trigger an end to abortion. In others, especially New York, we anticipate that this reckoning will drive many to violent rage as groups like “Jane’s Revenge,” who have twisted abortion into an unsacred rite, carry out the retribution of the Democratic Party against churches and individuals who dared question its power. We believe, however, that as our nation confronts what it has done, for whatever reason, we can only process the slow creep of unfathomable guilt. We the people have killed.
Violence will not cleanse our bloodstained conscience through the desperate assertion of “my body, my choice” in the streets and on websites. Nor may we forget the aborted America—what we lost. The aborted America took from us doctors, teachers, soldiers, priests, construction workers, waiters, scientists, community leaders, mothers, fathers, brothers, and sisters. We must strive to live the lives that they cannot.
Even on this day of good fortune for our young, many states will continue to deny their young a right to life; abortionists and their supporters hold massive sway in many states, including and especially New York. For those who have had abortions or who are struggling with a decision on the topic, our Club would be remiss not to offer the support you need in this time of crisis. We will have more details on this topic in the coming days. For those who continue, after facing the truth of their legacy, to push for “abortion on demand and without apology” as they did at the doors of the Basilica of Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral this past May, remember that it is not too late to align with the truth and to reckon with your failures.
For those who insist that by speaking out for the aborted America we take “the wrong side of history,” remember that even Jane Roe from Roe v. Wade (i.e., Norma McCorvey) became pro-life and repented for her youthful indiscretions.
