The Associated Press (“AP News”) reports that the U.S. Supreme Court (“SCOTUS”) will hear arguments this week involving the drug mifepristone, which is used in conjunction with misoprostol, to cause an abortion.

Two years after the SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade, abortion opponents will ask the high court tomorrow (3/26/2024) to ratify a federal appeals court ruling limiting access to mifepristone – a drug used in 63% of all abortions in the United States during 2023.

Mifepristone is taken first to dilate the cervix and block the hormone progesterone, which is needed to sustain a pregnancy.  Misoprostol is then taken 24 to 48 hours later, causing the uterus to contract and expel the pregnancy tissue (i.e., fetus or baby).

Julie F. Kay, Executive Director, Abortion Coalition for Telemedicine, makes it clear that the coalition’s motivation for supporting the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (“FDA”) currently-loosened restrictions in the use of mifepristone is to facilitate abortion for women living in states that currently restrict abortion, stating that mail delivery or telemedicine may be the only options.

My brothers and sisters, this writer stands with FGGAM’s Co-Founder and Pastor Dewey Moede.  Abortion is the taking of an innocent human life formed in the image and likeness of God.  In other words, it is murder, not healthcare, because it is done with intent, usually as a matter of convenience (not as a lifesaving procedure), and the goal is to end a human life, not to save one.

As followers of Christ and believers in the inerrant truth of the scriptures, let’s pray that this reversal of current FDA rules is upheld by the SCOTUS, saving as many babies as possible.

Let’s remind ourselves of what the bible has to say:

Exodus 20:13 (Amplified Bible)
“You shall not commit murder (unjustified, deliberate homicide).”

Psalm 127:3 (NKJV)
“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, [t]he fruit of the womb is a reward.”

Psalm 139:13-16 (NLT)
“You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.  Thank [Y]ou for making me so wonderfully complex!  Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.  You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.  You saw me before I was born.  Every day of my life was recorded in [Y]our book.  Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.”

Jeremiah 1:5 (NKJV)
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you…”.

Praise Jesus forevermore!
