Robert George: Why Lincoln defied Dred Scott and we must defy Roe

Cradle My Heart Radio welcomes Princeton Professor Robert P. George week of February 21

Princeton Professor Robert P. George

When it comes to abortion many of us are very well-informed at the level of personal experience. Some of us have gone deeper into pro-life apologetics. But most of us are not well-versed in the law. And few in the law have such a complete vision rooted and grounded in love.

Professor Robert George is the McCormack Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University. His  legal education also includes Harvard and Oxford universities. Concerning the 43rd anniversary of the Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion, Professor George writing for First Things pinpointed the main problem with the Supreme Court decision which legalized abortion:

“As with Roe, the US Supreme Court’s Dred Scott decision [stripping slaves of basic human rights] lacked any warrant in the text, logic, structure of original understanding of the Constitution. It was, as Abraham Lincoln rightly insisted, an act of judicial will, not law, and as such an assault on the very Constitution in whose name the justices purported to act.”

In calling for defiance of the Roe v. Wade decision, George advocates for incremental legislation to protect the unborn, banning funding of abortion services, supporting candidates who will uphold life, and devoting ourselves to the cause at the local level through our witness and support of the pregnancy help movement.

This is a conversation you don’t want to miss.

The task is monumental, but our hope is greater still.
