Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113, and Doe v. Bolton, 410 U.S. 179, both handed down by the United States Supreme Court on January 22, 1973, legalized the killing of prenatal American children. Although the New York Times headline stated that they could only be slaughtered during their first three months of life, Doe v. Bolton extended this through all nine months of their gestation for the health of the mother, to include mental or ‘emotional’ health. Thus, all a mother has to do is find an abortionist willing to destroy her late term child and she may have it done. In some states, there are zero restrictions, permitting mothers to kill their children on demand regardless of circumstances.
Ironically, both of the women behind these cases, Norma McCorvey (Roe), and Sandra Cano (Doe), are now pro-life activists. After years of involvement in the struggle to kill prenatal children, the reality of abortion and their part in its legalization eventually hit home. If even these women could find their way, there is hope for those still blinded by the convenience of killing.
Together, we will regain the right to life for the preborn members of our human family. And when we do, it will be cemented into our Constitution for our posterity.
