But before I show that, let’s clarify what the Supreme Court did 45 years ago. In Roe v. Wade the Supreme Court in effect made abortion on demand untouchable by law. The way this was done was with two steps.
One step was to say, laws may not prevent abortion, even during the full nine months, if the abortion is “to preserve the life or health of the mother.” The other step was to define “health” as “all factors — physical, emotional, psychological, familial and the woman’s age — relevant to the well-being of the patient.”
For 40 years this has meant that any perceived stress is a legal ground for eliminating the child. We have killed over 50 million babies. And what increases our guilt as a nation is that we know what we are doing. Here’s the evidence that we know we are killing children.
