35 Years of Abortion

As you may already know, today marks the 35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court ruling that made abortion legal in the United States. Since that fateful day, an estimated 40 million abortions have been performed in this country alone. That's 40 million Americans, killed before they even had the chance to take a breath - 40 million unique individuals, human beings just like you and me, whose lives were cut tragically short, by another's choice.

I don't have much to say on a day like this, but Julie Grisolano has written a moving piece on the subject over at Signs of the Times. By all means, read it.
