The outpouring of eulogies for retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens is certainly emblematic of a godless society that has become hardened to the monotonous carnage of the abortion holocaust. Ten times the number of innocent souls have died in America's abortion death camps than were exterminated by the Nazis. These hundreds of little Auschwitzes specialize in assembly-line destruction of innocent human beings, a mere consumer service to many but unique in its lethal quality.
The Supreme Court is not responsible for all the abortions that have occurred since its constitutionalization of the "procedure" in 1973. A number of states had already legalized abortion, a curative for the "accidents" of the sexual revolution, before Roe v. Wade. But only a few allowed as unrestricted a "right," as Roe did. Because the political will did not exist to impeach the abortion justices or to pass a constitutional amendment protecting life, the Supreme Court became in effect the National Abortion Commission, determining the scope of the bloody right it had invented.

Thus, the moral responsibility for the continuation of the full-throttle abortion holocaust rested with the members of that court. "To whom much is given, much shall be required." (Luke 12:48) Some refused to go along: William Rehnquist and Byron White, the original Roe dissenters, and later Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas. Justices Sandra Day O'Connor, David Souter and Anthony Kennedy, presented with the opportunity to overturn Roe, deliberately cemented it into place in Planned Parenthood v. Casey (1992). Justice Kennedy later wavered, recoiling at the horrors of partial-birth abortion in two cases but ultimately making his peace with the holocaust in Whole Women's Health in 2016 at the age of 80, two years before he retired.
Justice Samuel Alito, confirmed in 2006, joined Kennedy in upholding the federal partial-birth abortion ban in 2007, but declined to join the stronger concurrence of Clarence Thomas calling for outright reversal of Roe. He also dissented in Whole Women's Health, not reaching the ultimate issue of the validity of Roe and again declining to join Justice Thomas' stronger dissent attacking the legitimacy of Roe. Chief Justice John Roberts, confirmed in 2005, paralleled Alito's positions in the 2007 partial-birth abortion case and in Whole Women's Health.

Justice Stevens, by contrast, voted to retain Roe in Casey and twice voted to strike down statutes prohibiting partial-birth abortion. He was an abortion advocate of the first order, showing no more ambiguity in his support of the abortion mandate than did those great pro-abortion zealots, William Brennan and Harry Blackmun. He now meets his Maker, as did they. "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad." (2 Corinthians 5:10) I shudder to think of the shock he is experiencing as the moral consequence of his deluded life rises up before him.
While the blood of the unborn cries out to God for vengeance ("the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground," Genesis 4:10), our legal elites pour out praises on Justice Stevens, oblivious to the brutal reality of his abortion jurisprudence and the debt of blood that America owes to the Creator of life.
