The Supreme Court of the United States, on this day in 1973 decided that elective abortion was a constitutionally protected act. Despite advances in medicine which have led to the discovery that a new human life begins to exist at the point of conception, the practice of elective abortion still continues today.
The fact that the right to an elective abortion should be celebrated is disturbing enough. But even worse is people who know the practice to be immoral idly stand by and remain silent having been convinced abortion is a ‘right’.
A majority of Americans consider themselves pro-life. Also, a large majority of Americans also consider it morally wrong, yet a majority do not believe Roe v Wade should be overturned. Why not? What is it that stands in the way of ending all elective abortions?
I often hear “I think abortion is wrong, but I think each woman should be allowed to choose for herself”. I get it. No one wants to push their views onto someone else. But shouldn’t we in some cases? If the reason you personally oppose elective abortion is because you know it takes the life of an innocent human being, why would you support someone’s right to do that? Why are some people so hesitant to take action especially if you know what abortion does?
If you believe elective abortion is morally wrong, but still support a mother’s right to abort her child, why?
