This is good Truth Network get ready. It's one of America's most important, influential and respected voices on cultural and political issues and apologist Christian political and offer is the founder and chairman of the citizen for America foundation, Dr. Chris hello everybody and welcome to go for important job overturning will be way while you probably hold about that and I was trying to think of somebody who I could have come on the show to explain everything that happens in 1973. What is Roe V Wade, we hear that term. What what happened to that decision.

Back years ago.

What happened was Beth December what happened on June 24 of this year were the ramifications for us as a country as a church and as Christians when trying to think of who to have well there somebody that knows more about this stuff to my dear friend Julie Scott Julie have been friends for quite a while now.

She was a former deputy chief of staff for United States Congressman Mark Walker, just a great Christian man who served in the United States Congress from the state of North Carolina and then after he left Congress to run for the state Senate. Julie went on to work with organization called the human coalition now. I'm hoping she will share with my Fatima and ask for just a minute to share with us just exactly what human coalition is, but they are a tremendous organization. I gotta tell you this pro-life battle for longtime. I'm ashamed to say until Julie went to work for them. I didn't know who they are but they are incredible. They are like special forces on the front lines of this battle.

And so when we talk about the issue of abortion in the what were going to be doing living in as opposed Roe America. I really wanted to have Julie come on here because Julie Scott Emmons has been on the forefront of that battle. This is a passionate person she she loves the Lord and she loves the unborn. She loves the moms they were put in that situation Joe Julie. I'm just so honored that you're with us here today on the Christian perspective, thank you for joining us. Okay been my honor and I can join you yet again and shout and that thrilled to be here and I think Mary numbing for anything yet you were on a few month ago when we were praying and begging the Lord, hoping that this would happen and there were at that point where the Supreme Court did overturn Roe B. Wade and did rule in the favor of our side in the Dobbs day so integrate how God works.

The Army basically for 49 years in the making that we been hoping that this would happen and praying that would happen in working so are God answered our prayers at the great day in America. Amtrak I are thinking. I think back to me only laughed at before thought at that point would be an actual leak and trout in all of the hullabaloo that anything that came after that an engine increased prayer and determination on the house of prayer life is particularly fine on the front lines of the constitutional and legal battle on an guide gave them strength and holding a cross that finish line and print that I think that given 24 I did thousand 22 email many events came in. I grew up hearing them. Talk about know where they were the day that Kennedy was shot, I remember I where I live in the day of the calendar that many of us remember 9/11 yet I thinking 24th that Friday morning when that decision came down it's something that Americans will always remember where they were what they were dealing and blatantly like all of them can praise God truly is a praise we yet we have been thinking a lot about you probably do better I would think that it the decision will be issued several weeks earlier year we Waiting What good are only certain days for a listers with the other only certain days, the Supreme Court issued their opinions and about a week and 1/2 prior to the actual release. I've been out in Anaheim, California, for the annual meeting of the Southern Baptist convention.

There were so many you know a lot of us had you when you got blue and you have meeting with subgroups that these big problems people at meeting with their different events and many of them at the plan because we thought that the decision was to be issued. That week, and it did not God still answer our prayers Julie before we jump into all of that. Can you tell our listeners because the other might be somebody listening never been involved in the fight for life before him and focus. This even though the Supreme Court throughout Roe V Wade, in my opinion I think Julie will greet the battle really just beginning and end is going to be in the trenches on a state-by-state basis now will get into that a little later in the show but you might be looking for an organization to volunteer with her or somebody just that you can check the website you want to week on the Internet or or or like your Facebook page or volume of social media so you can keep up-to-date on what's happening to the water to be happening. A very rapidfire fashion over the next few months. There a lot of great organizations that have been about medical years are involved in it fail, but a great one is a human coalition so Julie can you tell our listeners who like me before you went there.

These were the words uttered this day July 20, 1969 by Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon to you along with Col. Aldrin had landed their lunar module. The Eagle and spent a total of 21 hours and 37 minutes on the moon surface before we talking with the command ship Columbia before a joint session of Congress commander Neil Armstrong stated to those of you who have advocated looking hi, we owe our sincere gratitude you've granted us the opportunity to see some of the grandest view of the create tour All-American about yesterday name is Julie Scott and Julie is with us today to talk about what happened in court overturned Roe V Wade was a commercial break.

We were talking about her great organization called human coalition and Julie one last thing before jumping grow situation folks. I just want to encourage you to visit human coalition.org that human coalition.org this is an Julie.

You did say this, but in my opinion, you were the Christian alternative. There are many great great pro-life motivations of the American others are doing as much as they can in the pro-life room, but I think your organization coalition, the one that can and will eventually go ahead with Planned Parenthood. I'm so glad for what you were doing, because when women want to have an abortion. They part of Planned Parenthood but there's not that one Christian organization out there that is connecting these moms need resources. Planned Parenthood lies the mothers of make you feel like you don't have any option but it abortion because that's really their business abortion business and that's how they make their money. Your organization human coalition human coalition.org is connecting monster resources are all about their available club but most young pregnant moms don't have a clue what they are, how to connect your doing that. So thank you for that. We Julie in 1973 there was a case that hit the United States Supreme Court: Roe V Wade and and I'm just give data background but as Julie to share with those that were hearing it.

We hear Roby Wade and will being told in the woman's health care. All this other garbage. Most of us listening don't really know what happened in 1973 and Julie I know you know in 1970 the young woman in Texas got pregnant with her third child and she thought she wanted to have an abortion should The previous two children and an organization or group of people, like Planned Parenthood is today. In my opinion fail.

This young woman they had been looking for an opportunity to run a test case that Tom abortion was illegal across the country of Texas where they were definitely was 100% illegal and they convince this young woman to allow them to use her as a test case can you kind of explain a little bit what happened back then the people I mean they hear Roby Wade but not absolute. People don't even know what that me right exactly one now we know her name with Courtney that grow and situation and I where Bartlett and recall and use her clay to go only in court that the cream court finding a so-called right to abortion in the United States Constitution that would in turn make the decision away from to be able to either allow or ban abortion within the state before was the way was decided by seven might need your little knife would be just what Julie got going there all the radical liberals or what rails that we don't all white men fellows what to do with her body mock I'm sorry Mark but but you know that the hypocrisy there is sure liked it when those white men made that decision for them about.

I'm sorry that we talk about you before Ralph went and everything barely protected in 30 okay so we don't throw all the time. Okay well please route it would eight I ate being in debt and very long time and I unit ready made in January 1973 in court ruled that into either the 14th amendment which protects the rights to life, liberty, and property also entailed a so-called right to privacy that included a right for women to have an abortion until the baby become viable and basically what they did. They basically turned state laws against abortion, and I think right let legal scholars have known and we know now. I created this so-called right and just an American constitutional law. Wellington never settled law, regardless of what anybody said it was an extreme and activist ruling on to overturn here. Go now what happened on June 24 is the cream court not only upheld the 15 week abortion which was brought to the court that day, they turned the engine regarding the County of abortion elected official your state legislature where now the authority to protect human life in the way. So when we think about the legal landscape in the legislative or looking at really whiny different battlefield because the government is not that conversation, we still need to be very thinking about ways that Congress can protect human life that you really a very different laws regarding abortion until I can keep up with you my crank at conservative thinking and I would agree that this be close to people possible to now. Now it's up to the state and and that's what happening in the postwar world and Julie people don't understand that good leader, the liberal screaming on a national television.

The media that you know this is good in healthcare but it is not those same people in any other situation or screaming your we live in a democracy which we really don't. This is really turn it back people not not a bunch of old white men.

As they say those are the ones that have the decision they started back to the people work will be to silence state-by-state cases okay so what happened just to recap what Julie said yours. 1973. This case fast.

Julie said there were more that there were 30 state to outlaw abortion completely about Tom, the woman wrote for the term John Doe were somebody is an almost use that woman's name is Joyce.

It was not Jane Roper. That's what you call the case and just trivia purposes. Roby Wade Mr. Wade was the district attorney of Dallas which is where they bought the initial lawsuit and he was upset he was defending the current state law.com and Dell in Texas, which denied abortion in all cases. So basically Julie they're not been the case for our side. The debate Supreme Court successfully in 49 years and individually said in December last year, 20, 21, there was a case that reached the Supreme Court for oral arguments, which is where presentations are made before the court in that case was called Dobbs versus Jackson women's health organization.

So if you want to do some research focus Dobbs deal BBS versus Jackson women's health organization. This was in Jackson Mississippi in the legislature, Mississippi. As Julie said passed a law that said you cannot have an abortion after 15 weeks now. Remember Roby Wade first trimester, they could have abortions for any real even beyond that, but particularly the first trimester abortion for any reason. And so this challenge what was considered to be the law of the land where the United States recorded basically legislated from the bench. It was a great test case and thank the Lord and and this is not a political commercial for resident trauma. But you know, I know a lot of y'all may not like present from you. I think the Lord that he nominated three justices in court who will pro-life interbedded not happen. We probably would not be where we are today, so Julie of the last 49 years really 50 Years Analysis Will Be Way past how many children have been aborted since that time, or any we are cleaning the law needed over 63 little American line underground and you know if we pause to think about how we considered the leader that each of those alliances created for the holy purpose with a unique imprint of our Creator with a unique name with a unique little dwelling life that will never see again and gone unit near the meets in the motion around elite leverage only and back where the long delay. Also, remember, and we grieve the loss only, and often not only are we missing children that we have their mom on and we mean no harm that abortion dies to landing and while there is incredible and quite and upon cranking an entirely student matter whether it's radio alive one person accounting people remember about 1/4 of our listeners at this moment have a question as part of the personal story and we can want to pause and we want to remind everyone of hope and healing that can be found in Jesus Christ interest on 19 if we confess our phones faithful and just forget it and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. That is something that that anyone dealing with right now everyone's talking about it can be a painful party, even if you got looking him.

That's the source of our true hope and healing interest in intimating that none of the other outside the reach of the Lord for that. This is just imaginary. We hear that number $63 million and I want you to really know what the ASP you buy. This is the greatest moral tragedy of our time and 63 million baby while most churches know most of most Christians to remain silent on this issue. Julie I know you been to a lot of obits of the seal is Supreme Court as I have worked for one other event that really disappoints me as I am not that happens every case, I'm really thankful for Catholic brothers and sisters using this battle and the forefront. But it really. I'm ashamed of a lot of the Protestants out there I'll just bring my own denomination number so the representative we have not been where we need to be on this issue are Catholic brothers and sisters of lead despite what everybody needs to get engaged to this issue because it is evil and it is all that all these babies would kill. So Julie what I live in North Carolina so this is not what I mean people can relate to this. I just want our audience to think about with a 63 million babies were I live a Division I football team, a major university called Appalachian State University here in the mountains of Northwestern North Carolina and I was thinking about her show today is try to put in perspective. Julie what what 63 million we look like so many of you probably been to a college football game shortly your watch one on TV, so I looked at our stadium here at state that stadium was completely full.

It would be like killing everybody that stadium and refilling it. Julie 21002100 times to kill as many people as a been killed to abortion so y'all need to think about this, this, this is a tragedy until it happened on our watch dogs that I hope hold us accountable. Don't talk so cigarette is commercial break talk more about the church has a strong Christian heritage, most Americans don't know really important role God in the Bible is the founder of American foundation, Dr. Chris for meeting date with Chris will embark on a journey much of America's Christian heritage up close and personal, and how it evolved over the government and the men who helped forge the new kind of Republic acknowledge the creator.
