Roe v. Wade

 Wow, things they are achangin'. Apparently the Supremes are poised to overturn Roe v. Wade which has, to some extent, enabled the killing of 60 million babies (not feti) since 1973. And a lot of folks are NOT going to be happy that these lives will be changed.

"But a woman has the right to control her own body doesn't she?"

Yes, up to the point wherein another life is at stake--her unborn child.

"Yes, but how about that young gal who is impregnated by rape?"

I will concede that abortion assuming that rape charges have been filed in court. I think one of the early mistakes of us anti-abortion folks was demanding NO abortions regardless of circumstances. Our obstinance has resulted in the loss of millions of babies, since rape contributes only a tiny fraction of the abortions.

Clearly leaving this to the states will not end all late-term abortions, but will certainly reduce the number.

I truly feel sorrow for women who have abortions at any stage for any reason. It would seem that the guilt many women would feel would follow them as long as they lived. I can imagine the second-guessing that could ensue.

I do have compassion for women who are pregnant with unwanted children. That is a sad state of affairs. but, I feel even more compassion for those little girls in utero who never will get the chance to experience life.

I understand that there are many women who cannot even discuss this rationally. That is no surprise. But regardless, I rejoice at the many children who will get the chance at life, even in tough circumstances, because of this new ruling.

May G^d have mercy on us all.
