Liberals don’t want to hear it.
But there is no avoiding it.
And Trey Gowdy spoke one truth that Democrats are desperate to avoid.
Trey Gowdy took on the leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion striking down the wrongly decided 1973 Roe v. Wade case.
For 50 years this tragedy divided the American people as the Supreme Court took it upon itself to snatch this decision away from the people’s elected representatives and impose abortion on demand on all 50 states.
Gowdy told viewers that the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade is just the start of the abortion debate as the pro-life movement will continue to fight for legislation to end this barbaric practice.
“When it comes to the instant debate on abortion, I don’t know if the leaked draft opinion will reflect the finished product, I doubt it, but I don’t know it. What I do know, is the issue is not going away. If Roe V. Wade is overturned and the issue reversed to the states, some states will ban all abortions including in the case of rape, incest and when the life of the mother is in danger. Some states will expand access to abortions and allow it up to the moment of birth or maybe even beyond in the case of partial birth abortions. It may be fine for the 50 states to have different views on education, crime, or the legalization of drugs. When life begins is not an issue subject to 50 different opinions,” Gowdy stated.
But while abortion or any so-called “right to an abortion” is not mentioned anywhere in the Constitution, Trey Gowdy noted that the right to life – and the duty for government to protect it – appeared multiple times.
“The right to life is not only mentioned in the Constitution, ‘No person shall be deprived of life,’ it is also mentioned on our birth certificate, The Declaration of Independence: ‘Endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights;’ and among these are also life…it’s right there in black and white in both of our foundational documents,” Gowdy added.
Gowdy added that democracy was never supposed to be easy.
Pro-life activists learned that lesson the hard way over the course of the last 50 years as they sought to overturn Roe v. Wade and erase one of the great moral stains on the United States of America.
But Gowdy described fighting to elect legislators that will advance your cause was preferable to the seven judges playing God back in 1973 and imposing their will on America through fiat.
“Democracy is hard. It was intended to be hard. It’s a privilege earned with the lives and limbs of others. It’s easy to sit around and wait for five lawyers in black robes to look in the shadows of a penumbra and tell us what our rights are. That is judicial oligarchy. It’s harder to go into the public square and the ballot box and the floor of a legislative body and debate it. But that’s what we should do. Do it for ourselves. Not wait for unelected lawyers who live lives of virtual isolation to do it for us. Our rights do not belong in any shadow. Bring them into the light,” Gowdy concluded.
