41 years of legal abortion have passed and still the battle continues. Despite growing opposition to abortion, abortion advocates continue to lobby for so-called “safe, legal, and rare” abortion. However, we know that today’s abortions are none of these things.
Is it legal? Absolutely yes. 41 years ago, Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton opened the floodgates for abortion in America and allowed for abortion throughout all nine months. While laws have been passed to defend the preborn children, we continue to battle state-by-state and at the federal level to abolish abortion.
Is it rare? Absolutely not. Across the country, over 1.21 million children are aborted each year during legal abortion procedures. Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton paved the way for the death of over 55 million children and hundreds of women, and the death count continues to rise.
Abortion is legal. Yes, there is no doubt about that. However, we know that legality is not the litmus test for morality. The law has been wrong in the past, and it can be wrong in the present. Slavery was once legal, and yet it was immoral. Similarly so, abortion is immoral, and we must take action to change the laws that allow it to continue. This month is your opportunity to challenge your community about the legality of abortion! We invite you to join us as we take a stand against abortion.
It is your time to BE THE REVOLUTION, and to take action to abolish abortion in our lifetime.
