TODAY'S ANNIVERSARY OF ROE v. WADE

Today marks the 32nd anniversary of the fateful Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision of 1973. An estimated 45 million fetuses have been aborted since then, a wave of slaughter incomprehensible in its scope and magnitude. The Left wrings its hands over the 1, 516 casualties in the war on terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan, and protests the president's inauguration yesterday; but, where's the anger and outrage over 45 million deaths of sentient human beings since 1973? Where's the accountability for this assault on life?

The president said yesterday in his Second Inaugural Address:

Americans, at our best, value the life we see in one another, and must always remember that even the unwanted have worth.

No one, and most certainly this writer, takes the sacrifices of our brave men and women in uniform lightly. Our hearts go out to the fallen and to those who bear the scars of war.

But how can Roe v. Wade be regarded as a conscionable decision by so many? I simply don't understand.
