Next Tuesday Marks 40th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade Abortion Ruling (1078 hits)

by Bethany Monk
She was young. She was in college. And like many other women, she believed the lie. It was 1981. After finding out she was pregnant, Carrie Gordon Earll, now a senior policy analyst at CitizenLink, decided to have an abortion. The lie she says she believed then:

That abortion is a choice like any other choice.

Forty years ago the U.S. Supreme Court made a choice that has contributed to the deaths of more than 50 million babies. The 1973 Roe. v. Wade ruling, along with its companion case Doe v. Bolton, made abortion legal for any reason at any time during a woman’s pregnancy. Jan. 22 marks the 40th anniversary of the Court decisions.

“I can look back over those 40 years and say without a doubt: The world is not a better place because of abortion — women are not in a better place because of abortion,” Earll said. “What it’s created is a world where you’re almost expected to abort if you’re pregnant at an inopportune time. It’s created a society where it’s easier to push women toward exterminating their babies than to accommodate them with their needs as mothers.”

Abortion may have been illegal but they were taking place before Roe v. Wade. If one had the money one could obtain an abortion. If a woman could not afford an abortion she sought other, more dangerous solutions to her problem. Remember, no one ever thinks about the male who impregnated the woman. Even married women were denied the choice of whether to go full term or not for whatever reason. Women who are critical of abortion as an evil forget that women could not register herself at a hospital without her husband's signature or her parents' for any reason. She could not have any treatment unless her husband signed. I worked at a hospital. I saw all of this. If one had the money one could have an abortion. There were ways around putting that particular information on record.
We forget that the black community was very hard on their daughters. Though they were taught the importance of chastity-- boys were not. It hasn't really changed. The female bears the stigma in the eyes of this society. Young girls should not be pregnant at such young ages and women should not have children that they cannot support financially or if it endangers her health--mentally and physically.

"Jane Roe" or Roe v Wade is now a prolife Christian. She's recently done a commercial about it.

Hey Irma,
I think you have a point, but in reference to Roe v Wade her daughter is a role model that says if you make a mistake, you can still have the baby. Life is a gift and its precious.
