Albert Mohler: The Central Sacrament of the American Political Left

On January 22nd last week—on the day marking the 48th anniversary of Roe v. Wade—the new president of the United States, in office just a matter of a few days, posted this tweet, “As we mark the 48th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, now is the time to rededicate ourselves to the work ahead. From codifying Roe to eliminating maternal and infant health disparities, our Administration is committed to ensuring everyone has access to the health care they need.”

By codifying Roe, let me explain briefly: President Biden wants to take the essential findings of Roe v. Wade, as abhorrent as they are, and make them lasting national legislative reality.

Any American who is shocked by that doesn’t deserve to be. Then-candidate Joe Biden made very clear that if he were to be elected president, he would move to legislate Roe v. Wade.

He basically supports abortion without restriction—any meaningful restriction—all the way up until the moment of birth.

All this reminds us that abortion has become the central sacrament of the political left in the United States.
