In March 1992, Chief Justice William Rehnquist, Justices Byron White, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy were ready to effectively overturn the landmark Roe vs. Wade ruling legalizing abortion. Chief Justice Rehnquist himself was to write the majority opinion. Anthony Kennedy got “cold feet.” He changed his vote and the ruling failed. (Associated Press, March 4, 2004).
This week is the 32nd anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision for making abortion legal. After January 1973, when the ruling was made, it was legal to murder unborn children. Through November of 2004, 44 million children had their lives taken from them in the mother’s womb. Currently there are approximately 3,600 unborn children killed daily and 1.3 million killed every year.
If Justice Kennedy hadn’t gotten cold feet and voted like he wanted, they (Supreme Court justices) would have saved 17 million precious people – unborn children.
As a nation, we’ve got to get the law changed so that Roe vs. Wade is not a landmark decision anymore. If we are aborting a child, we are killing God’s child. Politics has nothing to do with it; we have to quit violating God’s plan. Abortion clinics have to go.
