Jan.22 marks the 37th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that gave unlimited abortion rights in this nation. Their decision that unborn babies weren't human beings harkens back to the Dred Scott Case of 1857 when the Court also ruled that Blacks were property.
The pro-life cause is a human rights issue of the present age, not politics. Upwards of a million men, women and children of all ages will join a March for Life which will pass the Supreme Court Building and the White House in Washington, D.C. to protest abortions. Many from this area will join the throng.
Why has a human rights issue has become political? While not high on the scale of political polls, the Democrat Party has embraced it. Why? One reason! Money! Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion groups funnel millions of dollars to pro-abortion politicians. In Dallas, TX Planned Parenthood is building the second largest abortion mill in the world (of course in a low income, minority area), second only to China. So when compassion and care are the buzzwords in pro-abortion circles, the real motive is money.
What kind of compassion to kill an innocent unborn baby putting the child through incredible pain in the process? Is it compassion to the post-abortion mother who often suffers guilt for years?
What about the statement Joe Tribula made in his Jan. 13th letter to the editor "I'm personally opposed to abortion but I don't want to tell anyone else it is wrong?" Isn't that like saying "I'm personally opposed to robbery or theft but I should not tell anyone it's wrong?"
Joe Tribula, I will pray for you. I hope others will also. You have become so hardened in your political views that you can't see real compassion; that is being pro- life.
