Thus says the LORD, “A voice is heard in Ramah, Lamentation and bitter weeping. Rachel is weeping for her children; She refuses to be comforted for her children, Because they are no more.”
Today marks 40 years since the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion on demand in all 50 states. In that time, some 56 million American babies have been slaughtered.
Yes, that’s right. Slaughtered.
Many posts were written today. Nowhere near enough. But here’s a roundup of some of the deepest, most rational thought on America’s greatest sin.
What Hath Roe Wrought

As more Crisis Pregnancy Centers open up around the nation, more abortion clinics close. As more information about Planned Parenthood is exposed (all the criminal charges brought against them, the cover ups of underage rape and abuse, the videos of personnel protecting pimps involved in child sex trafficking, the unseemly profits of an organization that claims to be non-profit, the misuse of taxpayer funds and overcharging the government) and as their abortion numbers continue to climb, the less people buy into their advertisements about being a “women’s health facility.” Americans are discovering that the abortion industry actually targets minorities for abortions. Black girls and women have more abortions than white women and they have more than one-third of the total number of annual abortions. Further, abortion clinics are disproportionately located in minority neighborhoods. In addition the public is learning that abortions are, increasingly, a matter of selfishness and/or convenience rather than a health necessity; worse, far too many abortions are 2nd, 3rd, and even 4th abortions, making it obvious that with repeat abortions the girl or woman is using abortion as a means of birth control.

The pro-life movement’s achievement is a witness, not a victory. We have maintained resistance to an injustice rather than vanquished it.

The Naked Evil of Abortion
Eric Metaxas at Religion Today
Well, we hoped it would never come to this, but America is observing the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court case that legalized the taking of innocent human life in the womb for any reason — or for no reason at all.
Abortion Survivors Tweak Nation’s Conscience
Warren Mass at The New American
Most of those who argue their respective points do so from a largely theoretical perspective, based on either their moral convictions or their political views. But for some people engaged in the debate, the matter is more personal.
One such category consists of women who have had abortions but who afterwards experienced regret.
