“Alabama Supreme Court Ruling Could End Legal Abortion in America
by Dave Jolly
In a case unrelated to abortion, the Alabama Supreme Court rendered a decision that could topple the legal spires of unholy abortions here in the United States (MURDERING unborn babies should have never been “legalized!”—my addition).
The case involved Sarah Janie Hicks who used illegal drugs while she was pregnant. After her baby was born, the infant tested positive for drugs and Hicks was charged with a crime and ended up pleading guilty to violating Alabama’s chemical endangerment statute. Her conviction was challenged and ended up before the Alabama State Supreme Court on the basis that the term ‘child’ did not include the unborn.
In an 8-1 decision, the court upheld the conviction of Hicks. Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, Roy Moore wrote in his concurring specially part of the ruling (excerpts below taken from full document):
‘‘I concur with the main opinion and with Justice Parker’s concurring specially opinion, which rightly notes that ‘[b]ecause an unborn child has an inalienable right to life from its earliest stages of development, it is entitled ... to a life free from the harmful effects of chemicals at all stages of development.’ ___ So. 3d at ___. I write separately to emphasize that the inalienable right to life is a gift of God that civil government must secure for all persons—born and unborn.’
‘I. Our Creator, Not Government, Gives to All People ‘Unalienable’ Natural Rights.’
‘According to our Nation’s charter, the Declaration of Independence, the United States was founded upon the ‘self-evident’ truth that ‘all Men are created equal, [and] that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights.’ Declaration of Independence, ¶ 2 (1776). Denominated in the United States Code Annotated as one of the ‘Organic Laws of the United States of America,’ the Declaration acknowledges as ‘self-evident the truth that all human beings are endowed with inherent dignity and the right to life as a direct result of having been created by God. When it was signed by our Founding Fathers in 1776, the Declaration returned to first principles of God, His law, and human rights and government …’
‘In its views of law and life by the most influential legal treatise of the time, Sir William Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Laws of England (1765). See, e.g., District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570, 593-94 (2008) (recognizing Blackstone’s work as ‘the preeminent authority on English law for the founding generation’ (quoting Alden v. Maine, 527 U.S. 706, 715 (1999)). Blackstone recognized that God’s law was superior to all other laws (AMEN! And really just obvious! The laws of the CREATOR are going to be superior to the laws of the created!—my addition):
‘This law of nature, being co-eval [beginning at the same time] with mankind and dictated by God himself, is of course superior in obligation to any other. It is binding over all the globe, in all countries, and at all times: no human laws are of any validity, if contrary to this .…’
‘Therefore, as stated by James Wilson, one of the first Justices on the United States Supreme Court: ‘Human law must rest its authority ultimately upon the authority of that law which is divine.’… (AMEN! And really just obvious! The laws of the CREATOR are going to be superior to the laws of the created!—my addition)’
‘II. The Right to Life is an ‘Unalienable’ Gift of God.’
‘The first right listed in the Declaration as among our unalienable rights is the right to ‘Life.’ Blackstone wrote that ‘[l]ife is the immediate gift of God, a right inherent by nature in every individual; and it begins in contemplation of law as soon as an infant is able to stir in the mother’s womb (Not being knowledgeable at that time about the complete process of conception to birth, they relied upon stirring to know that a pregnancy had occurred!—my addition).’’ …
‘God’s creation of man and woman in His own image, Genesis 1: 27 (King James), together with the divine command, ‘Thou shalt not kill,’ provides the baseline for the right to life. See Exodus 20: 13 (King James). Exodus 21 provides express protection for the unborn: where fighting men ‘hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her ... [a]nd if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life.’ Exodus 21: 22-23; see id. (requiring that if ‘no mischief follow’ then the offender must pay a fine). Both testaments attest to the sanctity and personhood of unborn life. See, e.g., Psalm 139: 13-15 (‘For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.’); Luke 1: 44 (Elizabeth declaring that ‘the babe leaped in my womb for joy’) …”
‘III. All Governments Must Secure God-Given Rights.’
‘Although not the source of our rights, governments are instituted in order to ‘secure these rights’ given by God, the Declaration continues, and are fashioned by the people ‘in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.’ Thomas Jefferson identified ‘the first and only legitimate object of good government’ to be ‘[t]he care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction.’…’
‘VI. States Have an Affirmative Duty to Protect Unborn Human Life Under the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.’
‘The Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment provides that a state may not ‘deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.’ U.S. Constitution amendment XIV (emphasis added). ‘[T]he framers [of the Fourteenth Amendment] attempted to create a legal bridge between their understanding of the Declaration of Independence, with its grand declarations of equality and rights endowed by a Creator God, and constitutional jurisprudence.’ …’
‘A plain reading of the Equal Protection Clause, therefore, indicates that states have an affirmative constitutional duty to protect unborn persons within their jurisdiction to the same degree as born persons. ‘The purpose of the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment is to secure every person within the state’s jurisdiction against intentional and arbitrary discrimination, whether occasioned by express terms of a statute or by its improper execution through duly constituted agents.’ …
‘Under the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, states have an obligation to provide to unborn children at any stage of their development the same legal protection from injury and death they provide to persons already born. Because a human life with a full genetic endowment comes into existence at the moment of conception (Yes, he/she does!—my addition) , the self-evident truth that ‘all men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights’ encompasses the moment of conception. Legal recognition of the unborn as members of the human family derives ultimately from the laws of nature and of nature’s God, Who created human life in His image and protected it with the commandment: ‘Thou shalt not kill.’ Therefore, the interpretation of the word ‘child’ in Alabama’s chemical-endangerment statute, § 26-15-3.2, Ala. Code 1975, to include all human beings from the moment of conception is fully consistent with these first principles regarding life and law.’’
Matt Staver, Founder and President of Liberty Counsel commented on the Alabama Supreme Court ruling, saying:
‘‘In an age where some judges do not know the difference between the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, or do not even care, finally the Alabama Supreme Court springs forth with a ray of light (They demonstrated more understanding and legal sense than did the U.S. Supreme Court in its unconstitutional Roe and Doe decisions! The wrong people were sitting on the court in Roe and Doe!—my addition).’
‘[The opinions by Chief Justice Roy Moore and Justice Tom Parker] are well-reasoned, grounded in history and natural law, and completely demolish the fallacies of the U.S. Supreme Court’s abortion decisions (Absolutely!—my addition).’
‘One day soon the United States Supreme Court’s abortion opinions will come toppling down like a house of cards (Should have already because they NEVER should have been! It was purely a political decision! It was never a legal decision!—my addition). Then we will look back at history like we now do with Nazi Germany and wonder why our generation was so blind to the personhood of the preborn child (Let us pray so! May GOD forgive us for allowing this MURDEROUS slaughter to have occurred and for having continued for sooooo long!—my addition).’’
The decisions written by Chief Justice Moore and Justice Shaw could well be used as a precedent ruling to abolish legal abortion in the United States. Yes liberals like Obama and others who love making millions from murdering the unborn, like Planned Parenthood, will challenge the ruling and argue the basis for the court’s ruling, but they may have a hard time winning their arguments (They should! They have NO legitimate legal argument to permit the MURDER of innocents!—my addition).
If you have contact with any right to life organization, you need to direct them to this important court ruling which can be read in its entirety here. Hopefully they will jump on the legal bandwagon to overturn Roe v. Wade and save the lives of millions of children that would otherwise be murdered before they draw their first breath of air.”

This election is critical! For life, for traditional family, for religious freedom, for liberty!
Restore the Constitution! Take back the nation!
Proverbs 14: 34 (NIV)
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin condemns any people.”
Ephesians 5: 11 (NIV)
“Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.”
Galatians 6: 7-8 (NIV)
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.”
It is time for all of us who support the morality established by GOD to rebel against the forces of evil! Expose their evil and return to GOD’S word and will!
Christians were bold in the First Century church! Are Christians as bold today?
Christians were resolute in the First Century church! Are Christians as resolute today?
Christians stood for the truth in the First Century church! Are Christians standing for the truth today?
If not Christians, who? If not now, when?
This is my two part suggestion to Tea Party groups, social conservatives, Constitutionalists, and anyone else who wants to save our Republic from the approaching destruction.
1) Run as many conservative candidates in as many Republican primaries as possible.
2) Then, run as many independent and/or third party candidates as possible in as many races as possible where we did not win the primary.
Competition is good for the economy and competition is good for the Republican Party!!! Competition keeps Congressmen committed to we the people!!! Primary Republicans who do not support the Constitution as written.
