    Following the leaked draft opinion that suggests the Supreme Court will return abortion policy to the states, Justice Clarence Thomas said that conservative justices will not be intimidated by leftist pressure and mob tactics. The longtime conservative justice added his belief that society has become addicted to preferred outcomes.

    Thousands of pro-life Americans marched in Washington, D.C. for what may be the last time under Roe v. Wade. In the coming months, the Supreme Court is expected to decide Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health—a case regarding the constitutionality of a Mississippi law banning abortions after 15 weeks—and both pundits and the public think overturning Roe is a likely outcome. While no one really knows what’s going to happen, let’s say Dobbs is upheld and Roe is overturned. What then?

    The power to regulate abortion would go to the states, where Red states would restrict it and Blue states would become abortion havens—California has already promised to subsidize travel and lodging for out-of-state women seeking abortions, and New York is making similar noises. Twenty-one Red states already have laws or constitutional amendments on the books that would ban or limit abortion should Roe be overturned. Five more are likely to follow suit if it is.

    The culmination of the conservative legal movement’s decades-long efforts and the innumerable prayers of people wanting to protect the most vulnerable should be cause for celebration. And Red states absolutely should eliminate abortion. But they shouldn’t stop there. If Roe is overturned, they should enact a series of holistically pro-life policies: child allowances, child and dependent care tax credits, easier and more generous adoption assistance programs, and the elimination of marriage penalties in welfare programs and the tax code.

    While honest people can debate trophy killings to increase one’s ego, or as a personal challenge, etc., and not to provide food, that alone does not justify the ritually excessive reaction to trophy hunting. In Judges 14, Samson killed a lion but did not take it as food or trophy, but he will forever be known for killing a lion with his hands.

    Generally, the killing of an animal should result in people eating the meat. Proverbs 12:27 says, “The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious.” So, if one does not eat the meat (or give it to others), he is slothful: deceitful and fraudulent.

    Most critics are not aware that usually, a trophy hunter’s kill feeds scores of hungry natives. That’s one reason, although not the main one, that people living in villages in Africa, India, etc., are delighted when a lion, tiger, leopard, snake, or such is killed. After all, natives live with daily fear while superficial, farcical, chattering city-dwellers weep copious tears over a dead beast who lives only to prey on other beasts and, at times, humans.
