Roe V. Wade
The pro-life movement spreads its message
It takes many forms, and it snakes its way through cultural relativism. But it’s alive and very active.
But that’s giving away one of the punchlines of a very lengthy, gut-wrenching, soul-searching article in the Wall Street Journal the other day that, taken together with the commentaries and articles linked within it, is filled with punches to the gut. It may be the best handling of the worst abortion news we’ve heard publicly since the news that the Supreme Court made abortion legal with its Roe decision.
“Picture a football stadium that holds 55,000 people, and then multiply that to 1,000 such filled stadiums, and you’ll have an idea of how many human beings we have lost, how many babies have been killed, since the Roe v. Wade decision 40 years ago.”
As long as current abortion law is on the books as legalized in the Roe v. Wade decision, it may be providing some new strength to the legal case for conscience protection in health care. Really.
The news media. Last year Newsweek tried to claim young women were the ones missing. That fallacy exposed, they tried just ignoring it this year. So did most other big outlets. But media blackouts don’t work anymore. Except to marginalize the media…
What irony that the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the March for Life, and the State of the Union all fall in the same week.
They came from all over the country, some riding in buses for 20 hours or more, many spending the night in church basements, all braving the cold, frosty weather to attend the 38th March for Life in Washington D.C.
President Obama marked the 38th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion in America by restating his commitment to protecting that ‘constitutional right.’
The Supreme Court ruling legalizing abortion in America turns 38 today. It’s getting old.
