37 years ago today in 1973, the Supreme Court of the United States legalized abortion. In doing so it created out of thin air a right that doesn’t exist anywhere in the Constitution to murder a child in the womb. The picture in this post is of a child at 17 weeks. According to the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, this child that is clearly a human being, sucking it’s thumb, is nothing more than a legal abstract. It can be allowed to grow and develop until delivered or dismembered and discarded for a couple hundred dollars. All on a whim in the name of hat most sacred word: “choice”. In a sweeping and incredibly misguided legal decision, millions of Americans have had their most fundamental right taken away by a court and in turn were murdered by their own mothers. By their mothers, the one person in all the world you should be able to count on and rely on to protect and nurture a child.
If the Supreme Court of the United States can take away the right to life for the most defenseless among us, what good are any of our rights? For all of the virtues of America, Roe v. Wade stands as a monument to injustice in a land that takes pride in freedom and equality.
