On this date, in 1973, the United States Supreme Court effectively ruled that abortion is a right guaranteed by the Constitution. Since then, approximately 57 million innocent lives have been taken.
Many Americans have learned to “live with” these results, apparently numbed morally by the outright horror of an act that has cost more lives than anything done by Hitler or Stalin.
We have been trained to think the human child is not a child. We have been schooled by our schools to focus instead on the “right” of a woman to destroy that life growing within her.
The one organization most culpable in this respect is Planned Parenthood, whose founder, Margaret Sanger, wrote, “The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”
This is the same Margaret Sanger who spread her views to whomever was willing to listen. One of her tenets was that blacks were inferior and needed to be weeded out of society.
So while Planned Parenthood adopts a name that gives it a cover of respectability, it’s not into any other type of adoption. The goal is always murder.
Those of us who respect human life—in particular, innocent human life—must continue to speak out on this issue. We must make sure it never goes away; we must not allow our nation to ignore the holocaust that is taking place.
The unborn child is a real person. Let us never forget that.
