Roe V. Wade: 40 Years Later
Today marks the 40th anniversary of the tragic Roe V. Wade decision. Words cannot describe how much abortion has damaged this country; and indeed, damaged the world. Here is an article from lifenews.com:
President Barack Obama issued a statement today celebrating the 40-year-old Roe v. wade decision that allowed for virtually unlimited abortions.
The decision, handed down on January 22, 1973, overturned pro-life laws offering protection for unborn children in most states across the country, and made abortions legal and virtually unlimited. Almost 56 million unborn children have been killed in abortions since.
The full statement follows:
“On the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we reaffirm its historic commitment to protect the health and reproductive freedom of women across this country and stand by its guiding principle: that government should not intrude on our most private family matters, and women should be able to make their own choices about their bodies and their health care. Today and every day, my Administration continues our efforts to reduce unintended pregnancies, support maternal and child health, and minimize the need for abortion. On this anniversary, we recommit ourselves to supporting women and families in the choices they make and redouble our efforts to promote safe and healthy communities.”
The statement is similar to his 2011 one, which celebrated abortion while trying to stake out a middle position.
