As you know the SCOTUS today struck down a Louisiana Law which imposed health and safety regulations on abortion clinics. The majority included Chief Justice Roberts.

For a long time I have been skeptical about the efficacy of the conservative-judicial-industry. How many GOP POTAE have to appoint how many Prep-School to Ivy to Federalist Society to the Senate to the bench justice? And still Roe is fundamentally intact. Do you think that maybe we put too much trust in political institutions and neglected cultural change? Do you think we’ve been fishing for judges in the wrong ponds, the same social-cultural ponds which gave us the liberal activist judiciary? I do.

To stand up to the cultural undertow, it takes faith in something more powerful than a Supreme Court. It takes a fear of The Most Supreme Court of all, One who promises to uphold the cause of the fatherless and weak. Otherwise, people will follow the crowd, conservatives just following the crowd a little more slowly.

The way to make abortions undoabe is to make them unthinkable. The way to make them unthinkable is to help people think clearly about the moral nature of abortion, and the way to help people think more clearly about the moral nature of abortion is to help them to think more clearly about morality in general. And the way to do that is to help them see the dignity of all human beings and the way to help them see that is to help them see God. And the way to do that is to accurately portray (like Jesus did, but of course he did it perfectly) what God the Father is really like.

Natural law, conservative activism, cherry picking a few not-as-bad-as-the-others from the ruling class' dissenting, but still pretty loyal, opposition isn't working. It's slowing the rot, at best.
