Roe vs. Wade Was Called an “Unspeakable Tragedy.” 59 Million Abortions Later It Still Is
An apt visual to accompany that definition would be a video from the March for Life, for, if ever there were an entity that embodied prescience, it is the pro-life movement.
On the night of January 22, 1973, CBS News anchor Walter Cronkite led off his newscast with a report on Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court decision that had been issued earlier that day. . . .
In the past 44 years, millions of mothers have been left to grieve children lost to abortion–often silently, as the abortion industry fails to recognize the pain and suffering of its dissatisfied customers. Research has shown that in as many as 60 percent of cases, women are coerced into abortion–meaning that a boyfriend, husband, parent, grandparent, or someone else is pressuring them to patronize an abortion facility. Fathers often wordlessly grapple with their role in the decision to end the lives of their offspring. . . .
The prescience of the pro-life movement cannot be denied. The predictions that Roe would undermine respect for life in our culture…give rise to an unspeakable tragedy…result in abortion double-speak…and cause the exploitation of women have all come to pass.
Thankfully, a significant number of the children who survived Roe, who are now adults often with children of their own, are dedicating their lives to exposing the tragic fall-out from that 1973 Supreme Court decision. They have both the benefit of the lessons of history and the blessing of foresight to know that our nation will be stronger…women will be empowered…and millions of children will be saved once Roe is reversed.
Truth and goodness and justice will win in the end. That is the prescient promise of the pro-life movement. . . . Read More
