Roe v. Wade 35 Years Later

An American born today can expect to live another 80 years. On this day, around four thousand Americans will be denied their opportunity to live to see the year 2088. Since 1973 about 50,000,000 Americans have been denied the full life that God gave them. They were murdered with government approval.

Abortion is government-legalized murder.

On this day in 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that if another human being will inconvenience you for a few months, you can deprive that human being of 80 years of his or her life.

Since that decision was handed down, an average of 4,000 mothers each and every single day have taken advantage of this "final solution" to a few months of inconvenience.

Many justifications are offered for this "right to choose" to kill another human being. These justifications are obviously invalid when applied to a mother who seeks to kill her 18-month old child on the grounds that the child cries too much or otherwise inconveniences the mother, even though these justifications are just as "true" as in the case of a pre-born child: the 18-month old child is an "unconsented tresspasser"; the 18-month old child is not a "viable" human being, since it cannot survive on its own outside the womb; etc. (Dump an 18-month old child in the middle of a national park and see how "viable" he or she is.)

Justifications for abortion are justifications for any murder.

The myth of government is that it exists to protect "life, liberty and property." The reality is that government exists to give a select group of voters, lobbyists, or special interests the right to destroy or confiscate the life liberty and property of those who inconvenience or get in the way of members of the special interest group.
