This past Sunday marked the anniversary of the fateful Roe vs. Wade decision, allowing women the supposed right to terminate pregnancies at their own will. Feminists see this as a sacred right for a woman to choose whether or not to bear children, and forcefully contest any possible change to the current status of this law.
his past Sunday marked the anniversary of the fateful Roe vs. Wade decision, allowing women the supposed right to terminate pregnancies at their own will. Feminists see this as a sacred right for a woman to choose whether or not to bear children, and forcefully contest any possible change to the current status of this law. They want you to believe that there is no value to life inside the womb, that it can be ended without consequence. Yet we know this can’t be true. The Roe vs. Wade decision is a stab to the heart of society, inflicting emotional and tragic pain and suffering to all parties involved.
Women need to understand that the life inside of them is not a choice; it is a life, in need of a chance to grow and thrive. No one has the right to deliberately take that chance, that life away.
Roe vs. Wade was the culmination of a society manipulated by extremely radical activists like Margaret Sanger, who founded Planned Parenthood. Based on the literature put out by Planned Parenthood, one would never truly know its dark roots. Ms. Sanger believed that people should actively purge the weak members of society in order to maintain order and help to develop a better race of human beings. She was not shy about stating these beliefs, calling for the removal of “human weeds’ and the eradication of charity. Sanger was a proponent of euthanasia, sterilization, abortion and infanticide- programs that Hitler used in his regime. Was Sanger’s purpose in creating Planned Parenthood to give a woman a choice? To liberate women from forced pregnancy? Absolutely not. Her aim was to cleanse the human race, and what better way than to convince an impoverished or unwed woman that the baby growing inside of her is worth nothing.
Sanger wasn’t alone in her activities. Dr. Alfred Kinsey’s questionable studies took God and morality out of sex, reducing the act to nothing more than an animal instinct. He also had no problem doing sexual research on children, which was truly nothing less than sexual abuse of minors. His theories had an agenda, and that agenda was to destroy the foundation of moral sexual behavior in our society. Unfortunately, he was quite successful. His findings were ‘liberating’ to many, but they also debased the traditional structures of family, commitment, and marriage. As society bought into his so- called ‘sexually liberating’ findings, women found themselves risking pregnancy with more ease and acceptance, while also being told that an abortion was ‘no big deal’. Many studies and personal accounts from women who have had abortions prove this to be most untrue. Many women grieve for years over having had an abortion, and some are never able to get over their suffering.
We have let the feminists and radical activists create a lie about the value of human life. We have accepted and believed this lie as a society, and that is why Roe vs. Wade came to be. It is based on a lie, and that lie has done more damage to our women and children than we could ever have expected. It is time to reeducate society and tell the truth about abortion. We need to understand that all human life has value, from the very beginning to the very end- unconditional, non-negotiable value that is sacred and important to all of us. It is time to stop pretending that abortion is anything less than ending a sacred life.
When we realize this, we will ultimately form a stronger society that empowers all women to value the life inside of them. Only then can we begin to heal the devastation caused by Roe vs. Wade.
