Two days ago, January 22, 2008, marked the 35th anniversary of the landmark decision of the Supreme Court known as Roe v. Wade, a decision that effectively permitted abortion on demand in the United States. The anniversary came and went with hardly a mention in the mainstream press. I must confess that I would've overlooked it myself except for stumbling on a reminder in an online news story and in Doug Groothuis's blog. Most Americans are sadly unaware that since 1973 well over 40 million unborn children have been slaughtered. Though the number of abortions has decreased in recent years, it still remains a fact that a woman can kill her baby for almost any reason at almost any time in her pregancy--and many, many women (and the abortion providers) still take advantage of the Supreme Court's permisssion of this atrocity. The stats are that 1 in 5 pregnancies today end in abortion.
40 million and counting. . .
