Arbiter: A person whose judgment is trusted when deciding a dispute (i.e., a judge)
A recent example of an arbiter is found in the words of Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh, who discussed the matter of the oral arguments in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, and said: “Why should this court be the arbiter rather than Congress, the state legislatures, state supreme courts, the people being able to resolve this?”
According to the Federalist, who paraphrased Kavanaugh, “Not only is there historical precedent for overturning Supreme Court decisions that are ‘grievously’ erroneous, but . . . in doing so, the court could restore its ‘neutrality.’”
The use of the word neutrality in this matter raised an eyebrow, and we thought it in the best interest of the preborn members of our human family to carry that question to its logical conclusion. Let’s start with the truth about an abortion, be it chemical, clinical, or surgical.
We know that abortion ends the life of a human being. We also know that those who favor the act of abortion deny that a human being dies during the abortion. But from a purely biological standpoint, there is nothing neutral about saying that a human being existed in one instant and in the next was gone.
Professor Dianne Irving has written that, if false science is used as the foundation of positions that result in legal precedent, as was the case in Roe v. Wade/Doe v. Bolton, courts are bound to repeat the lie ad infinitum, thus condemning thousands of innocent human beings to death by abortion unless a case comes before them that challenges the status quo. Such a case would underscore the true science and undo the horrific pro-abortion house of sand that represents today’s abortion law.
The scientific fact that abortion kills a human being must be at the core of our nation’s legal about-face if our laws are ever to reflect the difference between life and death, right and wrong, and good and evil.
The simple fact is that abortion is not, nor has it ever been, a neutral act, a neutral idea, or a neutral proposition. Abortion ends the life of another person. It is anything but neutral.
Recently, the Washington Post featured a female member of the clergy who had aborted her own baby and preaches that she had “never felt more known and heard and loved by God than when I entered the doors of a Planned Parenthood.” Then last month she addressed a group of Christian abortion-access activists meeting in a D.C. church, saying: “Something holy is happening here, friends.”
Holy? Heard by God? What gibberish!
The deceptive argument that abortion will eliminate racism or poverty is also nothing more than a stale piece of Swiss cheese. In fact:
Abortion disproportionately affects the Black community. While African Americans account for 12% of the population in Pennsylvania, in 2020 Black women accounted for 44% of the abortions in the state.
That trend extends nationwide. Across the country, on average Black women are 4 to 5 times more likely to abort than white women. Tragically, it is estimated that the majority of pregnancies (52%) in the Black community end in abortion. More Black children are being killed in the womb than brought into the world.

Aborting a child is always wrong. At its core, it is a national practice that has, over the years, drained the life blood, the truth, and the integrity of this land of the free from the heart of a once great, life-affirming nation. This is why we strive to end the carnage.
We teach the truth that every abortion kills a person—whether by pill, device, injection, or surgical instrument—because we know that truth is the path to moral sanity. There is no such thing as a good abortion. Intentionally aborting a child is evil in every case.
Those who view themselves as arbiters of good and evil while supporting the killing of babies are themselves evil. We commit ourselves anew to praying for them, spreading the truth about the gift of life, and reminding everyone we can that, as St. John Paul II taught: “Human life is precious because it is the gift of a God whose love is infinite; and when God gives life, it is forever.”
