Nathanael Blake published a piece at The Federalist August 31st, 2021 titled ‘A Supreme Court That Capitulates On Roe V. Wade Will Unleash A Whirlwind’ in which he lays out what is likely to happen among conservatives in America if a 6-3 majority on the U.S. Supreme Court upholds rather than overturning Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 case which established abortion as “the law of the land.”
He is right to posit that such an outcome would implode the Republican Party, which for nearly 50-years has funded and ran its campaigns against abortion, and extracted a great deal of loyalty from voters who are incensed by the State-sanctioned mass murder which is euphemized as “abortion.”
The history of the Republican Party in America is replete with moderates who care more about being “bi-partisan” than they do about staying faithful to the promises made to their constituents who elected them. Since the Civil War and Reconstruction, moderate Republicans have routinely sold out conservative causes for the sake of short-term personal comfort and deal-making with the opposition.
Yet we do well to remember ourselves and remind moderate Republicans, be they on the Supreme Court or anywhere in or out of power, of what Proverbs 24:10-12 says.
“If you faint in the day of adversity,
your strength is small.
Rescue those who are being taken away to death;
hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter.
If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,”
does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?
Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it,
and will he not repay man according to his work?”
