On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/4/2018), Hank reads from and interacts with William McGurn’s recent article in the Wall Street Journal, “Destroying Brett Kavanaugh: This is what Democrats do when they think Roe v. Wade is at stake.” Now is not a moment in history in which to be silent or apolitical. In 1973 Christians were largely silent in the face of a holocaust that has led to the deaths of 60 million pre-born children. As a means of loving our neighbors as we love ourselves, we are to seek justice and equity today.
Hank also interacts with the late Judge Robert Bork’s thoughts on abortion and Roe v. Wade. In Slouching Towards Gomorrah, Bork writes, “I objected to Roe v. Wade the moment it was decided, not because of any doubts about abortion, but because the decision was a radical deformation of the Constitution. The Constitution has nothing to say about abortion, leaving it, like most subjects, to the judgment and moral sense of the American people and their elected representatives. Roe and the decisions reaffirming it are equal in their audacity and abuse of judicial office to Dred Scott v. Sandford. Just as Dred Scott forced a southern proslavery position on the nation, Roe is nothing more than the Supreme Court’s imposition of the morality of our cultural elites.”
