How would King Solomon decide this one if he were alive today in the USA?
The Chicago Tribune article today October 20,2017 titled, Pregnant immigrant’s case tests Trump abortion policy, reports a Solomon decision will be made today. The issue is a total opposite to his Biblical decision which was heralded over the past 3000 years as a testament to his superior wisdom.
The issue, “a Federal appellate panel here is scheduled to hear arguments in a case brought by the women ( 17 years old) called Jane Doe to shied her identity to force Lloyd’s office to allow her to have an abortion.”
Compare this circumstance to the one King Solomon judged where the complete opposite when two women fought over the right to claim to want a newborn baby.
What will the panel decide?

To Everything There is a Season
1There is an appointed time for everything.And there is a time for every event underheaven– 2A time to give birth and a time to die; A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.…
16Furthermore, I have seen under the sun that in the place of justice there is wickedness and in the place of righteousness there is wickedness. 17I said to myself, “God will judge both the righteous man and the wicked man,” for a time for every matter and for every deed is there. 18I said to myself concerning the sons of men, “God has surely tested them in order for them to see that they are but beasts.” 19For the fate of the sons of men and the fate of beasts is the same. As one dies so dies the other; indeed, they all have the same breath and there is no advantage for man over beast, for all is vanity. 20All go to the same place. All came from the dust and all return to the dust. 21Who knows that the breath of man ascends upward and the breath of the beast descends downward to the earth? 22I have seen that nothing is better than that man should be happy in his activities, for that is his lot. For who will bring him to see what will occur after him? (Source Here)
In My Opinion
Because I believe there is a God, I would not undo what God has done.
Somehow, some way, the wisdom of values of wanting a baby have been “uprooted” and turned 360 degrees in the past 3000 years.
How would you decide this issue today if you were on the panel?
