41 years ago today Roe v. Wade became seared in the national consciousness as abortion became legal in all 50 states due to a landmark Supreme Court decision, citing women’s privacy as its foundation. The last 41 years have represented the loss of more than 50 million lives through abortion. Although the loss of life, at this point, is astonishing, there are signs that the tide is turning, and for this I am grateful. In the Washington Post yesterday Clarke Forsythe examined the increasing shakiness of abortion’s foundation in America, and Dr. Al Mohler has also pointed us to the horrific ethical problems with the push for more abortion, namely the blatant racism of some of abortion’s most ardent supporters. Fox News has also underlined some of the progress being made toward the elimination, or at least reduction, of abortion on demand in the USA.
This short video does a good job of providing a brief glimpse of the history of abortion in America since the Roe vs. Wade decision. I hope you will take some time today to pray that God will move in America, and that abortion will be eliminated.
