Want To Know How Many Lives Destroyed by Roe vs. Wade?

Today is the 33rd anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision.

The Consequences of Roe v. Wade
45,951,133 Total Abortions since 1973

Now take a look at what President Reagan said about abortion...............

"Our nation-wide policy of abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy was neither voted for by our people, nor enacted by our legislators--not a single state had such unrestricted abortion before the Supreme Court decreed it to be national policy in 1973. [It was] an act of raw judicial power"...

"Make no mistake, abortion-on-demand is not a right granted by the Constitution. Nowhere do the plain words of the Constitution even hint at a "right" so sweeping as to permit abortion up to the time the child is ready to be born."

"We cannot diminish the value of one category of human life--the unborn--without diminishing the value of all human life."

"Abraham Lincoln recognized that we could not survive as a free land when some men could decide that others were not fit to be free and should therefore be slaves. Likewise, we cannot survive as a free nation when some men decide that others are not fit to live and should be abandoned to abortion or infanticide. My Administration is dedicated to the preservation of America as a free land, and there is no cause more important for preserving that freedom than affirming the transcendent right to life of all human beings, the right without which no other rights have any meaning."

- President Ronald Reagan : "Abortion and the Conscience of a Nation", 1983

Wild Thing's comment.........
Years ago I when I was getting my nails done the woman doing my nails told me how she had just had an abortion. This woman had an adorable 9 year year old son. I had been going to her for 4 years. I asked her why did she get an abortion????
She was single and got pregnant from a man she had a few dates with. She informed me it was no big deal that this was her 11th abortion!!!!
I sat there in silence, shocked. Then I asked her why didn't she use some form of birth control since there were so many out there. Get this............ She responded that it was easier to take her chances and then IF she got pregnant she could just have an abortioin.
When she finished doing my nails, she was going to give me my next appointment. I told her no thanks I was not going to fund her abortions and that I would be going elsewhere.

I am adopted, I was 3 weeks old and I will be forever grateful to my biological mom for doing what she did. She was young, just out of highschool but she wanted me to live and have a chance in life. No I have never contacted her and do not wish to, not because of disrespect but because of it. She went on with her life and I had my own with awesome parents that adopted me. I was given her photo and was told her story of what happened. It is a love story that ended abruptly when the man two years older then she was killed serving our country in the Military.

Even if I was not adopted I would be against abortion. IT IS WRONG!

It's stripping away the child's natural right to live. Next time you look at a little child think about if that child was aborted. It wouldn't have even had the chance to live and have a life... can someone make that decision for the unborn child?

I believe that once the child is conceived it starts growing and is developing every second into the person that it will be for the rest of its life. It really is a living person. I don't know how anyone can say it isn't when you look at it. At 2 weeks, it starts to grow brain cells. And at 8 weeks, it is entirely formed with hands, arms, legs, feet, all of it. If that's not a person, then I don't know what is, why not just say it's okay to kill a child that's 8 or 9 years old if you decide you can't afford him, or don't want to deal with him. That is how awful abortion is.

History is full of examples of unwanted children who were conceived and became historical figures and legends of human history.You don't know if you've aborted the next Michelangelo, Monet, Vermeer, Bach, Beethoven, Galileo, Newton or Einstein. And heck just wonderful human beings that want a chance at life.

Excellent post!

Truly, for some, maybe even most of the sexually active today are indeed using abortion as a form of birth control. How else can you explain such an enormous amount of murders being conducted year after year!

It is deeply saddening.

Thank you for sharing this part of you with us.

Its true, every one who is for abortion has already been born.

All those babies. Its heartbreaking.

Up until a few years ago I never gave the idea of abortion much thought other than being a man it wasn't something that I would ever have to wrestle with. Growing older and hopefully a bit wiser I have become very pro life. This is coming from someone who was once married and never wanted children. Yes it is contradictory. I simply cannot understand why women will not give up their unwanted babies for adoption. There are so many many couples that want to adopt. The present day DamnoCrap party is pro CHOICE when it comes to killing babies. Just don't allow a parent the CHOICE of sending their children to a better school! How this great country has come to view murder as choice is truly very sad.

(That's my view and it's free of charge.)

It sure is Linda, well said.

Hi Sparks, your view is worth a lot. ( big smile)
Thank you for your comment and sharing. I agree there are a lot of couples that would love to adopt.

Wild Thing you have been blessed abundantly by the parent who wanted a better life for you and the parents who loved and raised you. Sharing that part of your life with us made my day…thank you.

A co-worker was saying that when a woman goes to Planned Parenthood for assistance, if she decides to have the baby, all assistance from Planned Parenthood stops. He (his wife is in the medical field) said that they only want to provide assistance for those wanting abortions. Does anyone know if that’s true?

Bob wow, I have no idea if this is true about Planned Parenthood. But I have heard some negative things about it over the years.

Thanks for commenting.

It sounds to me like this was all just a childish prank gone wrong. I think the whole thing is blown out of proportion and six month's sound about right. Kids do stupid things. It sucks that your flag got burned, but that is very much so replacable. I was in The united states airforce, I didn't go to Iraq, but i have quite a few friends who agree kids will do stupid things when mixed with alchol. if you think these kids should go to jail for ten years, thats just simply insane. When i was young i vandalized a baseball field, my mother found out grounded me for a month know i'm a senior Draftsmen for a Civil Engineering company.My final Conclusion you are making way to big a deal about a childish prank gone wrong
