Abortion: America in the Valley of Decision

I believe there are five good reasons that could convince a majority of Americans there is a way to help pregnant women in a difficult situation, which is better than abortion. Abortion is now a crime in some states and is considered a woman's right in other states. America is in the Valley of Decision on this issue! (See Joel 3:14.) But what most people don't know is that every state now has a little-known Safe Haven alternative to abortion.

But wait, who is Allan Parker, and why should you care what I believe?
Well, I represent thousands of women who have been hurt by abortion.

I believe we are in the "de-abortification" of America, just as we had to go through "desegregation" after the U.S. Supreme Court reversed Plessy v. Ferguson, its own 58-year-old precedent, which had enshrined segregation as the law of the land. Plessy was reversed in 1954 in Brown v. Board of Education, now known as one of the greatest Supreme Court decisions because the Court had the courage to correct its own mistake. Yet Brown was opposed vehemently by Democratic politicians across the United States who pledged massive resistance to it, such as George Wallace who defiantly shouted "Segregation forever!" Democrat governors and the Biden administration are exercising the same massive resistance today to the Court's decision in Dobbs, which reversed the Supreme Court's 49-year-old decision called Roe v. Wade. They are shouting "Abortion forever!"

Just as segregation was always a "crime against humanity" even before Brown, abortion is also a "crime against humanity." A crime against humanity occurs when the government withdraws legal protection from a class of human beings. All of us can think of terrible times in history when such crimes against humanity have occurred.

But what about women? Some argue they need access to abortion. Is abortion good for women? The terrible hidden truth is that abortion hurts women. Even Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, writing for four dissenters said, "...for most women abortion is a painfully difficult decision." The five-member majority in Gonzales said abortion was "a difficult and painful moral decision." Gonzales v. Carhart, 550 U.S. 124 (2007). The other five justices agreed on this point, meaning all nine members of the Court agreed that abortion is painfully difficult for women.

Why continue to hurt women and kill children when every state has a Safe Haven law?

Now, because of the relatively new Safe Haven laws in all 50 states, all American women can be free of the burden of parenting without killing their children and hurting themselves. Yes, abortion hurts women. Millions of women have been hurt. I've spoken to many of them and read thousands of their testimonies. The Supreme Court has admitted that abortion has "devastating psychological consequences." (Planned Parenthood v. Casey), and "severe depression and loss of esteem" (Gonzales v. Carhart). In addition, the Court has stated, " . . . some women come to regret aborting the infant life they once created and sustained" (Gonzales v. Carhart). It is an "infant life" at the time of abortion. Click here to read the testimonies of Women Hurt By Abortion.

What Is Safe Haven?

Under her state's Safe Haven law, any woman in any state can safely relinquish her child by leaving the baby with the hospital or another designated location, usually at a fire station, within a designated time period after birth (typically between 3 and 90 days). In every state, women can have the freedom of Roe v. Wade without killing their babies. Isn't this an improvement over the death of babies and trauma to women?

Safe Haven is also free, absolutely unlike an expensive abortion. There's no legal procedure involved. No post-abortion trauma.

See NationalSafeHavenAlliance.org to find out how your state law works.

Justice Amy Coney Barrett asked in Oral Argument in Dobbs, the case that reversed Roe, "Doesn't the Safe Haven law eliminate the burden of parenting?" It does. In exchange for some months of pregnancy which is serious, the state will now give 18 years of freedom from the burden and expense of parenting. It is time to stop killing children, a crime against humanity. It is time to be compassionate and say to women, "Don't hurt yourself when we have a Safe Haven law. The state will pay your medical expenses of pregnancy if you are low-income under Medicaid in every state"

Millions Of Women And Families Waiting To Adopt

Finally, what will happen to those children if they are Safe Havened voluntarily by their mothers? There are one to two million families every year on a rolling cohort basis, waiting to adopt newborn children.

It's the Love, Love, Love solution. Love and justice for the baby; love, mercy and compassion with actual help for women through the Safe Haven law; and love for the families waiting to adopt and love newborn children. This is the way to move forward to end legal abortion. I believe abortion will eventually be as illegal and unthinkable as slavery and segregation.

The Moral Outcry Petition Movement

You can get involved in ending abortion in every state by joining The Moral Outcry Petition Movement. In 2017, The Moral Outcry Petition Movement was created to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse Roe v. Wade, Planned Parenthood v. Casey, and Doe v. Bolton, the Court's three abortion decisions. On December 1, 2021, in Oral Argument, the Supreme Court justices discussed two of the five reasons for reversing Roe, given in The Moral Outcry Petition. On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court reversed Roe and Casey and actually wrote in the decision about two of the reasons for reversing Roe, given in The Moral Outcry Petition. Today those same reasons can convince a majority of Americans to make abortion illegal in all fifty states. Join us in our fight for the voiceless by signing The Moral Outcry Petition To Make Abortion Illegal In All 50 States at TheMoralOutcry.com, and we will equip you with tools and arguments for you and your neighbors.

The same reasons The Moral Outcry Petition was used to ask the Supreme Court to reverse Roe, which they did on June 24, 2022, are the same reasons every state should make abortion illegal now:

✅ Abortion is a Crime Against Humanity
✅ Safe Haven Laws help women by eliminating the burden of parenting
✅ Abortion Hurts Women
✅ 1-2 Million People Want to Adopt Newborn Babies
✅ New science shows that life begins at conception, including IVF, DNA testing and sonograms

Center Against Forced Abortions (CAFA)

Unfortunately, another way that abortion hurts women is through coerced, forced, or unduly pressured abortions. Once abortion is legal, it allows others to force women to have an abortion to fix their "problem," not because the mother wants an abortion.

The Justice Foundation's Center Against Forced Abortion fights against these forced abortions. The three most common are:

1. Adult parents forcing a minor daughter;

2. An adult male forcing the woman to abort his child;

3. Human trafficking and prostitution.

CAFA provides free legal tools to help prevent forced abortion and training which you can download for free.

CONCLUSION

Our Declaration of Independence declares: ". . .that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, among these are the right to life . . ." We carried this belief in a right to life into the Bill of Rights in the Fifth Amendment which states: "No person shall be deprived of life without due process of law." You had to be guilty of a crime and convicted by a jury beyond reasonable doubt before you could be killed.

After a bloody Civil War to end slavery, the Fourteenth Amendment was passed to say that no person shall be deprived of Life, Liberty, or Property, or the Equal Protection of the laws. That right also applies to preborn children. After all, abortion is the shedding of innocent blood. It is murder.
