Today marks the 40th anniversary of Roe v Wade, the day on which it became possible to do away with an unborn child and since then over 54,000,000 children never had a chance at life.
40 years ago was just a year after the debut of Ms Magazine, the monthly created by Gloria Steinem in order to promote the equality of women. Back then I loved Ms Magazine, had every one of the early issues. But there came a time after the celebration of abortion rights that I stopped getting it because not only was the thought of women cheering for the taking of a baby's life horrifying, but there were hints that at some point in time we'd be cheering for euthanasia. All life suddenly became expendable depending on how much of a nuisance we thought another life might be.
There is no way to sugar coat abortion, it is the killing of a baby, a child, someone with a beating heart, someone who although not yet seen by us, can hear us and react to our voice or to drums or anything else. Abortion is not pretty which is why there is such a hue and cry from those who desire the availability of it to to keep images of this out of sight. They scream that the showing of these broken babies is shock value and unfair.
God have mercy on us for what we have done and what we choose not to see.
