Roe v. Wade — 41 Years Later

I Want To LiveToday marks the 41 anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision on Roe v. Wade, which made abortion on demand the law of the land in all 50 states. Over 55 million lives have been ended during this time, as women found it much easier to “get rid” of their “problems” rather than give a living child up for adoption.

Our current POTUS certainly enjoys celebrating this anniversary, and has released the following statement:

Today, as we reflect on the 41st anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, we recommit ourselves to the decision’s guiding principle: that every woman should be able to make her own choices about her body and her health.  We reaffirm our steadfast commitment to protecting a woman’s access to safe, affordable health care and her constitutional right to privacy, including the right to reproductive freedom.  And we resolve to reduce the number of unintended pregnancies, support maternal and child health, and continue to build safe and healthy communities for all our children.  Because this is a country where everyone deserves the same freedom and opportunities to fulfill their dreams.

Everyone except for those nascent human beings being slaughtered each and every day…

This is NOT America’s finest hour, not by a long shot. Republicans are considering making this an issue in the upcoming mid-term elections. Ed Morrissey at Hot Air has some advice for them about that.

That strategy requires political candidates who can discuss the subject intelligently. We’ve seen what happens when Republicans attempt to “wing it” during interviews, and the media will be as anxious as ever to cast the GOP as “extreme” on abortion. No doubt demagogues like Andrew Cuomo will be delighted to assist, too.

If the RNC really wants to put this issue on the table for 2014, then it had better plan for those eventualities. (They did postpone their winter meeting to allow Republicans on Capitol Hill to participate in March for Life demonstrations today.) The RNC consists in large part of officers from state parties, who should know the candidates who will try to unseat Democratic incumbents, and GOP incumbents whose rhetoric needs polishing. Hold some seminars to accomplish that, and perhaps Republicans can leverage the majority who want to see more restrictions on abortion and expose Democrats as abortion-on-demand advocates to demonstrate the real extremism on this issue.

Okie wishes them luck with this one… Somehow, this plague of mass killing must stop.

The soul of the United States hangs in the balance.
