Since the Democrats don't have control of the Senate, and I think that the possibility is remote, this article is making a big to-do about nothing! It might happen in the future, but perhaps the church is down in Georgia will decide that is time to do some evangelism and convert a lot of people to Christianity--then I'll be certain to get the people with the right views on abortion. Right now, unless this magazine thinks they're article is going to get to a lot of Georgians, something of a waste of effort.
It doesn't matter how pro-choice Biden and Harris are, (there's a link in the Atlantic article about Biden) as long as the woman can freely choose if she has an abortion or not then the responsibility is hers ‚Ěó
Both the SA and this article are interesting You can always avoid Church if you're worried about covid-19 ‚Ěó

Emma Green wrote: .... Democrats are not ready to fully take on the Hyde Amendment, at least not in Congress; Pressley‚Äôs recent revolt was mostly symbolic. But today‚Äôs Democratic Party is more Abzug than Carter: Its leaders have united around describing abortion using the language of discrimination in health care, rather than compromise on a morally challenging issue. The Democratic dream of 2020 is not just to take back the White House, which would allow party leaders to appoint a generation of judges and justices who will support abortion rights. Democrats want to maintain the House and reclaim the Senate as well. If that happens, the reluctant truce that‚Äôs held since 1976 may end. If Democrats have their way, taxpayers will fund abortion once again.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

I'm --almost-- looking forward to getting to the shot, can't say I've been a big fan of needles or the after-effects of some of the vaccinations I've had.
Neil wrote: John Birch Society (via New American), like most other conservative critics of the pope, don't understand that this is just another variation on longstanding RCC hostility to free markets and private enterprise, starting with Thomas Aquinas. And worse, here they treat the RCC as if it's a legitimate church only with misguided leadership, rather than the enemy of the Gospel and the true church. The implication is, clean up their economics and they'd be on the "right side." How times have changed! Puritans wasted no opportunity to denounce popery in their writings, unlike most modern preachers, even those identifying with Reformation doctrines, who don't want to be too offensive.
Neil, good points, but both Drs. Rugh and MacArthur can be very explicit about the Romish Church
Popes being the leaders of an authoritarian organization never do hit a happy medium when it comes to capitalism or socialism
Allison Donahue wrote: .... If Roe v. Wade is overturned in the Supreme Court, the power to decide whether or not abortion is legal will be in the hands of state lawmakers. In Michigan, the state would fall back to its last abortion law from 1931, which made any abortion a felony unless the woman‚Äôs life was at risk.
Nationally, 61% of Americans support legal abortions in all or most cases according to the Pew Research Center study.
There are only seven states ‚ÄĒ West Virginia, Kentucky, Virginia, Alabama, Missouri, Arkansas and Louisiana ‚ÄĒ where the majority of people say abortion should be illegal.
excerpt from,"Pew study: Majority of Michiganders support legal abortion"
It would look like Michigan would pass a more liberal abortion law, if it came to that?
Romans 8:7 because the mind of the flesh is hostile towards God; for it is not subject to God‚Äôs law, neither indeed can it be. 8 Those who are in the flesh can‚Äôt please God.
In a democracy a majority determines the morality,if you think abortion is immoral or should be made illegal then convert to people to Christianity-and not by force either!
