22 Jan A Day that should live in Infamy
Today, January 22, marks the 38th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Since 1973, when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that every woman had a constitutional right to have an abortion, some 55 million pre-born children have been ripped from their mother’s womb and discarded. But there is good news: many Americans are beginning to grasp the reality of abortion – not only does it end a child’s life, but it harms the mother as well.
According to Gallup, more people consider themselves to be pro-life than pro-choice. Not to mention that the pro-life community has made major strides in passing legislation to protect pre-born children and their mothers. More legislators and governors are avidly pro-life – much to the dismay of the pro-abortion lobby. The evolution of medical technology continues to show that a pre-born baby is just that – a baby! The “it’s just a blob of tissue” group appears more and more cold and calculating – definitely not willing to acknowledge reality.
Take time this weekend to attend one of the various events occurring to honor this Sanctity of Life weekend. There are Marches for Life all around the country with the largest one occurring in Washington DC on Monday. Check your local Right to Life organization to find when their commemorations are taking place. At the very least, take some time to remember and teach your children that every life is to be cherished and protected – and most especially our smallest and most vulnerable ones.
