Today is the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the infamous SCOTUS decision that required all states to allow unrestricted abortion. It is the day that our government officially installed a “might makes right” ideology. My size and power means that I have the “right” to destroy human life inside my body that I find inconvenient, untimely, or otherwise undesirable. Will this human life hinder my goals in life? Am I just “not ready” to be a mother? Does this human life have some characteristic I find objectionable? Then I get to destroy it. There is so much wrong with this way of thinking, but that’s what we are up against.
Many people used to support abortion but changed their minds. Here are a few:
- Norma McCorvey, the woman who was Roe in Roe v. Wade
- Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood worker, now pro-life leader
- Julia Holcolm, Steven Tyler‘s young lover
- Kathy Ireland, supermodel
Here is a list of more people who used to support abortion but are now against it, including some former Planned Parenthood workers, abortion doctors, and politicians. Here is another list (there might be some overlap).
Even though Democrats get the rap for abortion, not all Dems support it. For example, there is an organization called Democrats for Life of America. Evidently, one in three Democrats is pro-life. Isn’t that wonderful? So refreshing. There is also a Facebook page called:
I am unsure how many people it represents but I follow them to show support for our common cause.
