This past week marked the 41st Anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that essentially paved the way for the legalized murder of some 56 MILLION babies over the next 40 years. The subject of abortion consistently brings up debate even among conservatives, and though we may risk alienating some… we would be remiss if we did not fight for life at every opportunity.
Abortion is murder. From conception, science tells us that the unborn child is a living and separate being. Our technology has progressed enough that we now know a baby can be born as early as 20 weeks and have a real opportunity at living a normal, healthy life. 20 weeks! That is half of the “normal” time a baby spends in their mother’s womb. So if a child can live a normal happy life being born at 20 weeks, how can we justify murdering that same child at 21 weeks? The only difference between an unborn child at that age, and a prematurely born child of the same age, is the few centimeters of mother’s skin separating the baby from the outside world.
Brit Hume recently passionately dismantled the pro-murder argument in a special report.
This is the 41st anniversary of the day the Supreme Court found that a generalized right to privacy it had basically invented, meant that a woman has a constitutional right to snuff out an unborn life, a human being with a beating heart. That’s what a fetus as young as six weeks is.
Small wonder these protesters still come every year to register their continuing objections. Some estimates are that as many as 55 million abortions — 55 million — have occurred since the Court acted. In that time, science has given us an ever clearer picture of just how much of a baby a fetus is. At 20 weeks, we now know, these tiny creatures can hear, even recognize a mother’s voice. Their toenails are growing and their hearts beat loud enough to be heard by a stethoscope.
The moral case for allowing such beings to be killed grows ever weaker and its advocates resort to ever more absurd euphemisms to describe what they support. They’re not really pro-abortion, they’ve long said, they’re pro-choice. This isn’t about killing unborn babies. it’s about reproductive health. And the biggest chain of abortion clinics in the country refers to itself as Planned Parenthood.
In 2012, this organization says it carried out “abortion procedures” 329,445 times. Whatever that number represents, it’s not parenthood. These protesters here today understand that there is something deeply false and wrong about all this. They come each year to remind the rest of us.
