On this day forty-three years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade, declaring that an unborn child was not a legal “person” and thus possessed no rights under our Constitution, including the most fundamental right: the right to life.
This decision has not only resulted in the destruction of countless innocent human lives (we include here both victims of abortion: the mother and her child), it also began the destruction of our Constitution.
In Roe, the Court held that it was a constitutional “right” to kill an unborn child by abortion.
As a result, since Roe v. Wade, more than 58 million innocent children have been killed by abortion.
This fateful decision and its consequences continue to tear at the soul of America. We know in our collective heart as Americans that killing an innocent, unborn child—the most vulnerable in our society—is immoral and can never be right.
As St. Thomas Aquinas observed, any law that is contrary to God’s law is no law at all—it is violence. Make no mistake: abortion is violence.
We can assure you that the American Freedom Law Center is committed to defending the right to life. And we are committed to defending those who speak out against abortion—the many who provide the needed voice for those who suffer in silence in the name of “choice.”
Please take a moment today to pray for an end to abortion.
May God bless you, and may God bless America.
