The Anniversary of Roe v Wade

Today marks the 34th anniversary of Roe v Wade. Most of our staff is at the March for Life in DC. I was hoping to go, but traveling with a one and a half year old on my own didn’t sound too ideal to me. And when I found out that one of my co-workers was basically en route most of yesterday because of the weather, I was quite happy that I had decided not to go. But in another way, I’m sorry I’m not there. My dad spoke at the Students for Life of America conference yesterday and he said so many people told him to say “hi” to me. That made me wish I was there. There really are so many wonderful people in the pro-life movement. It’s sad that we have to get together to commemorate another year of a law that has allowed over 47 million babies to die. But at the same time, it is heartening to get together with such amazing people. Many of our readers already know about Roe v Wade, but I wanted to briefly mention another case, decided on the same day in 1973 of which some may not be as familiar. The case is called Doe v. Bolton. In short, Roe v Wade legalized abortion throughout the United States, striking down all state laws. Doe v Bolton legalized abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy. We have one of the most liberal abortion laws in the world and many of our own citizens don’t know it. As teens you can help Generations for Life spread the truth about abortion. I truly believe that if people knew what was really decided back on January 22, 1973, they would not be in favor of abortion. If they knew that how an abortion was preformed, if they could see the pictures of aborted babies, if they knew that you could have an abortion in this country the day before your child’s due date, if they would listen to the thousands of women testify to the damaging effects abortion has had on their lives, I think things would change. But we need your help. We need you to spread this message. Give speeches in school, write papers, start a club, leaflet your school, put up a cemetery to the unborn. Together we can change hearts and minds and put an end to abortion. Let’s get working.
