Roe V. Wade' Anniversary Could Bring Policy Change

Morning Edition, January 22, 2009 · Thursday marks the 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion nationwide. It's also likely to mark the day President Barack Obama will reverse at least a few of the anti-abortion policies of George W. Bush.
By now, it's become something of a tradition.
In 2001, just two days after he took office, Bush used the Roe anniversary to issue executive orders reversing some of the abortion rights policies of his predecessor, Bill Clinton, just as Clinton had used his first Roe anniversary, in 1993, to override some of the anti-abortion policies of President George H.W. Bush.

I pray for our country often. 50 M innocent babies have been killed because Americans have given women the "right" to do so.
I hope that our new president will not keep the promises he has made to the abortion activists. I hope for our citizens to be awakened and to come to the defense of these defenseless babies. Did you know that last Sunday was National Sanctity of Human Life Day? I didn't hear it broadcast on MSNBC. The proclamation signed by President Bush said "All human life is a gift from our Creator that is sacred, unique and worthy of protection". He added that America recognizes that "every person waiting to be born has a special place and purpose in this world". If our area had a March For Life today, I would have participated.

I agree with you completely. I am very sad for all the lives that have been lost, and are still being lost.

Our opponents are right about one thing, though. We need to care just as much for children after they're born, and do what we can to see that they have happy, healthy lives.
