Roe v. Wade: 44 Years Later

Feet of a fetus at 10 weeks

On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled on Roe v. Wade, establishing that laws banning abortion violated the constitutional right to privacy. In effect, with one decision, the Court overturned all state laws outlawing or restricting abortion.

Click here for audio of the oral arguments.

It's chilling. Nine individuals were able to do away with the "settled law" in fifty states, deciding that it was illegal to protect the unborn because it infringed on one's right to privacy.

Since the Court's decision in 1973, roughly 60 million lives have ended because their mothers "chose" to end them before birth.

The past eight years, Obama has celebrated this day, cheering the landmark ruling.

For instance, last year, Obama marked the anniversary with a statement that included this bizarre sentence: "In America, every single one of us deserves the rights, freedoms, and opportunities to fulfill our dreams."

No, "every single one of us" apparently did not deserve the "rights, freedoms, and opportunities to fulfill our dreams."

Another one million babies were aborted after Obama made that statement.

Since Roe v. Wade, sixty million babies were killed before they could enjoy any "rights, freedoms, and opportunities." These innocent human beings had no chance to formulate, let alone fulfill, their dreams.

It was truly sick that the president of the United States had the audacity to celebrate the slaughter.

Throughout his presidency, Obama never wavered on his radical anti-life, pro-abortion stance. Of course, the approximately eight million babies that were killed by abortion during his time in office have the shortest of life stories. They never had the chance to take their first steps, say their first words, love and be loved. They never even had the chance to take a breath. Millions of American children were killed, and Obama and others sharing his pro-abortion stance celebrate that "choice."

Now we have a new president, a Republican. We have a House and a Senate in Republican control.

What will they do to protect the unborn and advance a culture of life? Will they act to take steps that might save some of the one million babies aborted in the U.S. every year?

Who knows? We'll see.

It is mind-boggling that some self-proclaimed pro-life conservatives chose to aid Hillary Clinton's effort to become president. She is a champion of abortion, even the ghastly late-term abortion procedure. And by so vehemently opposing Trump and undermining him after he was elected the Republican nominee, they were assisting the pro-abortion movement by trying to prevent the Republican from winning, thereby assuring a Hillary victory. One cannot help but question their principles and their commitment to the pro-life cause. They really veered off in the wrong direction. What were they thinking? It doesn't matter. They failed.

Thankfully, the American people gave power to the Republicans. Now, these elected officials have the power to act.

I don't expect Roe v. Wade to be overturned. But we can all agree to respect science, right? In the name of science, I would like women to be told the truth about the baby's development so they can make an informed "choice."

Why is it that Democrats are always yapping about science but they refuse to allow science to be acknowledged when it comes to fetal development? Why this attempt to keep women in the dark?

It's obvious. Acknowledging the truth would mean admitting that each abortion kills a precious, unique human life.

Today, I'm mourning the nearly 60 million lives that weren't protected, that weren't allowed to be lived.
