3 Things Pro-Life Christians Can Do Even if Roe v. Wade Is Never Overturned

<p><p>It’s great that another conservative-leaning person was nominated for the Supreme Court, but what if Roe v. Wade is never overturned? If abortion remains legal in the U.S., could Christians still engage the pro-life effort beyond protesting Roe v. Wade?</p> <p>Ever since the Supreme Court ruling in 1973 that legalized abortion as a Constitutional right, American Christians have fervently appealed to both heaven and the government to overturn this decision. However, 45 years (and over <a href="http://www.numberofabortions.com/" target="_blank">60 million</a> terminated pregnancies) later, Roe v. Wade still stands.</p> <p>These growing numbers can zap the hope out of any pro-lifer, but recent events have sparked inklings of hope among Christians that the likelihood of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade perhaps might be somewhat possible, maybe.</p> <p><span style="font-size:10px;">Photo Credit: Unsplash/Sebastian Pichler</span></p>

Trump’s Possible Supreme Court Nominees: The Faith Factor

The three judges have been on the legal world’s radar since they appeared in November on a White House list of potential Supreme Court nominees. And they are all “really incredible people in so many different ways, academically and in every other way,” according to President Trump.<p><p>The president is expected to nominate one of them to replace Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, who announced his retirement last week (June 27).<p>For his first pick for the high court, Trump thrilled his conservative and evangelical Christian supporters by selecting Neil Gorsuch, an adherent of the “strict constructionist” philosophy espoused by the justice Gorsuch was replacing, the late Antonin Scalia. For many conservative evangelicals, the Supreme Court is the reason they voted for a president who doesn’t always talk and act like a person who has been called “God’s chosen candidate.”<p>Now the president seems to be angling to hit another “home run” (in Trump’s own words) for his base. The next justice appointed to the court will almost certainly decide cases on access to abortion, marriage and LGBT rights, and the place of religion in public life — and possibly, some observers say, revisit the landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade.<p>With these issues in mind, activists, politicians and court prognosticators are studying the cases and faith influences of the most likely nominees among the seven contenders the president reportedly has interviewed.<p>Here is a list of the three possible nominees widely considered to be front-runners and what they have said and done with regard to religion.
