A Growing Movement and a Changing Paradigm
Abolish Abortion Wisconsin is a growing movement that is committed to advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to ending the legalized murder of preborn human beings. For too long the pro-life movement has operated unmoored from the theological foundations of Christianity. Science unequivocally informs us that human life begins at the moment of conception. But science cannot tell us whether preborn humans, or any humans, actually have inherent value and worth. It is Scripture and our theological traditions in Western Civilization that affirm to us that preborn babies are indeed valuable living human beings, made in the image of our God and deserving of our love and protection. Thus we are unashamed of our dependence upon the teachings of Christ in all that we do, aligning our strategies, methods and conduct with His divine Law and His holy Character, recognizing that we will give an account of ourselves to God on the day of Judgement.
“…what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
“Seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless”
Following in the footsteps of abolitionist movements of old, we are abolitionists of human abortion.
Today, the courage of many has failed them. Consequently, we see corruption increasing on all sides of our blood-stained nation. We are in need of men who possess the integrity and courage of those who have changed the world before us. As Leonard Ravenhill eloquently stated,
“We love the old saints, missionaries, martyrs, and reformers. Our Luthers, Bunyans, Wesleys and Asburys, etc. We will write their biographies, reverence their memories, frame their epitaphs, and build their monuments. We will do anything except imitate them. We cherish the last drop of their blood, but watch carefully over the first drop of our own”
The people of Wisconsin murder 6,000 babies every year. The pro-life politicians we’ve elected to protect them have merely attempted to regulate the practice of child sacrifice as if it were healthcare instead of addressing it as murder. If our pro-life leaders do not treat abortion as murder, then why would anyone else in our society?
The governing authorities of our state possess the moral, legal, and constitutional duty to establish justice for all human beings within their jurisdiction, including the preborn fatherless by prohibiting the slaughter of children in the womb.
Contrary to widespread misinformation, the right to murder humans is not protected by the Constitution and our legislature is not bound by any law or duty to aid or abet the Supreme Court in their attempted perversion of it. Conversely, they are duty bound by their oaths to support, obey, and defend the United States Constitution.
We demand that our legislators stop passing laws to regulate abortion. We demand the total and immediate abolition of human abortion.
We are uniting the voice of Christian people around our state to longer accept the status quo, nor to continue playing political games but to labor diligently and effectually to end the killing of innocent children. We have the power and the influence but we squander it so easily. As Frederick Douglass stated many years ago, “power concedes nothing without a demand”. We must demand of our legislators that they end this killing. We must unite as Christian people to effect social change – in both changing the hearts and minds of people, as well as replacing politicians who do not value human life.
THREE COMMON OBJECTIONS BRIEFLY ANSWERED:
But the federal courts have ruled. Isn’t Roe v. Wade the law of the land?
This is not true. Courts do not make law. Courts issue opinions that often times are both morally and Constitutionally wrong. We have a system of checks and balances in place in this country to curtail such judicial abuse. For example, read about what happened in Wisconsin when our legislators and State Supreme Court defied the unjust federal Fugitive Slave Act on behalf of the runaway slave, Joshua Glover, here. See also our articles Abolition and the Constitution, A Criticism of the Legality of Abortion, and The Not So Supreme Court: A Look at the Supremacy Clause.
Don’t we have to first change hearts and minds before the culture will be ready for abolition?
To a certain extent yes. But we have elected “pro-life” majorities throughout our state. We have a majority “pro-life” voting constituency. We have the votes, but we squander our influence. We elect politicians who give lip service but who do not have the courage or conviction to end abortion. We sit in pews under religious leaders who do not have the courage or conviction to end abortion. This is precisely the problem we are trying to amend. We need leaders in Madison as well as in our pulpits who have the courage and conviction to do what is right. We are building a movement to accomplish this. Will you join us?
Won’t there be a huge push back from pro-abortion people in our state if we were to end abortion?
If our elected officials abolished abortion in our state in defiance of the Federal courts – yes there will be push-back. Doing the right thing always involves a push back. This is where our courage and mettle is tested. Such push-back is nothing new in our state. Scott Walker didn’t allow fear of his political opposition to squelch his desire to do what was right when he and the Republican legislature enacted Act 10. Despite massive resistance, protests, threats, and recalls, Walker and the GOP leaders stood their ground – and prevailed. This is precisely what is needed today in defense of the preborn!
