Are there biblical implications to the overturning of Roe Vs Wade?

On Friday June 24 the Supreme Court overturned a ruling that had made it a constitutional right for a woman to murder her unborn baby. This is a ruling that has been held since January of 1973, now it will be up to the individual states and their voters to determine the legality of abortion. The outcry of those who favor “abortion” is the same litany of excuses for killing a baby; pregnancies that the young girls’ body cannot handle, poverty, incest, rape, a deformed baby with little chance of quality of life and the health of the mother. One woman wrote in the Omaha World Herald of how her heart was broken over these women who would have to endure all of these things, what about the heart of the baby? His/her heart gets broken literally and is destroyed. There are a few actual facts that are not commonly reported upon. Only 8% of these deaths are due to a medical abortion. Of these Planned Parenthood and Human Life International both agree that 2 percent of pregnancies are ectopic pregnancies and may be fatal to the mother, and only 5 percent of rape victims are impregnated, which leaves 1% for other medical difficulties. In this day of modern technology and medical care, it is very rare that the killing of the baby is medically necessary and most, if not all, states make allowance for that. That leaves at least 92% of these murders are a nothing more than a method of birth control. We live in a society that the best answer that society can come up with for society ills and problems is to kill the innocent baby. Just as Pharaoh killed the babies in Egypt, Herod killed the babies in Bethlehem, Hitler killed Jews and others in Europe, so now the babies must die for the sins of their fathers. Thanks to the Supreme Court we may now take our arguments to the State legislature and argue for the life of the innocent and justice for the guilty. “For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.” (Psalm 139:13-14).
