WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
By Rev. Ruben Diaz
You should know that, according to a recent news report, the Supreme Court was breached, when a document was leaked to the media which revealed that the majority opinion of the Supreme Court Justices is to overturn the controversial decision of Roe v. Wade, which nationalized the practice of abortion.
You should also know that this would be a victory for the Republicans, the Pro-Life Movement, and people of faith, who would make history with the repeal of Roe vs. Wade, which by the way has never been codified by Congress. The Democratic Party is a strong proponent and has sponsored the practice of abortion in this country for over four decades. The results of Roe vs. Wade have been devastating to this country. It has divided the American people and has ended the lives of more than 12 million (12,000,000) unborn children, since 1973 when the Supreme Court decision was made.
It is very important for you to know that this strife between Republicans and Democrats dates to the years of the Civil War under President Abraham Lincoln. The Southern Democrats favored and fought hard in favor of Slavery. This issue also divided the nation, the Northern States against the Southern States. The Southern Democrats strongly opposed the Abolition of Slavery which torn this country apart and led to the Civil War in (April 12, 1861 – May 9, 1865). This too resulted in the loss of blood and treasure finally bringing an end to slavery.
Now the abolition of abortion in America, is another bone of contention and struggle that has lasted decades and the Conservatives, the Republican Party and Pro-Life People have had to push back on the Democratic Party’s agenda. They’ve pushed back on the Democrats and their agenda for Abortion on Demand, Late Term Abortions, Abortions when the baby is viable, with the heartbeat bill, etc.
You should Know that in 1988, I decided to create "The New York Hispanic Clergy Organization” because I felt that as a conservative and a minister, I had to create an organization that would educate the Hispanic Evangelical Christian Community in the political process and bring to light those social issues that impact our families and communities. The purpose was to fight against laws that are morally wrong as ordained by God. One of those immoral laws obviously, is abortion. We fight on behalf of the unborn and the sanctity of life. We oppose Abortion, and those judges that legislate from the bench. We support Judges that uphold the U.S. Constitution and interpret law, especially those judges appointed to the highest court in the Land, the Supreme Court of the United States of America.
Over the years we have been criticized because many do not understand the mission of the New York Hispanic Clergy Organization. Today we can say to God be all the Glory and honor, because those who persevere and believe in the Lord will never be brought to shame, for all things in the Lord work for good.
We praise our Lord for President Donald J. Trump who showed wisdom in selecting Justices to the Supreme Court that will uphold the Constitution, and therefore it is very likely that Roe vs. Wade will be overturned finally. And yes, this is a victory for all people who value the sanctity of the life of the unborn, and the health of women.
The Catholic Church, its leaders, the Evangelical Christians, the Republican Party, the Conservatives, and every person who rejects abortion believing that God is the giver of Life today has a reason to rejoice.
