33 years of a glorious 'right'

Today is the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that invented a Constitutional "right" to have one's unborn child bloodily dismembered. It was a classic act of judicial tyranny, completely undermining our system of government. But more importantly, it resulted in the legality of a barbaric practice that undermines the respect for human dignity upon which this republic was founded (in large part). [Update: President Bush: "Our Nation was founded on the belief that every human being has rights, dignity, and value."]

In the U.S., well over 40 million innocent human beings have been legally slaughtered since 1973. This is our generation's "slavery." Courageous abolitionists must speak out.

La Shawn Barber on the March for Life and Blogs4Life Conference (update). Plus, here's a post about an interesting recent abortion discussion on Stand to Reason's blog.

And as a resource, the fairly new site Abort73.com is quite impressive in its breadth, addressing pretty much every abortion-related issue or question.

Update: President Bush's remarks to the "March for Life" crowd. The president:
You believe, as I do, that every human life has value, that the strong have a duty to protect the weak, and that the self-evident truths of the Declaration of Independence apply to everyone, not just to those considered healthy or wanted or convenient. These principles call us to defend the sick and the dying, persons with disabilities and birth defects, all who are weak and vulnerable, especially unborn children.

With the Judiciary preventing us from banning abortion, what can we do? A lot of the same things we should be doing anyway:
We're vigorously promoting parental notification laws, adoption, teen abstinence, crisis pregnancy programs, and the vital work of our faith-based groups. We're sending a clear message to any woman facing a crisis pregnancy: We love you, we love your child, and we're here to help you.

Good news from Ann Coulter: "Both The New York Times and The Washington Post have recently run op-eds by liberals calling for Democrats to abandon their single-minded devotion to Roe v. Wade."

She observes, "One by one, the Democratic Party keeps having to abandon all the insane positions that have made it the funny, silly party we've come to know and love." Indeed, I think this country is in many ways moving in a saner direction.
