I Am Overwhelmed by 55 Million Babies Killed Since Roe v.
Wade

What can I say that hasn’t already been said about today?

Yesterday evening, I was sitting in my living room working while watching my sons play. I began to think about what my life would have been without them. How different I would be. How their lives have already made this world a different place since they were born. How much I would hurt if I had chosen abortion.

Then, I thought of the more than 55,000,000 lives that have been taken in the U.S. since 1973, and I became overwhelmed at the tragedy. Tragedy for the babies, their mothers, their fathers, families, and us.

Who is our nation missing? What price is our society paying for the ultimate deceit of abortion?

40 years ago today, seven men on the Supreme Court decided in favor of a case presented to them from a 27 year-old, unknown, post-abortive lawyer, Sarah Weddington. That case was Roe v. Wade and, along with its companion Doe v. Bolton, it legalized abortion in all 9 months of pregnancy, for any reason, in the United States.

Today, this 27 year-old is writing to you as a survivor of that decision. The undeniable fact is that nearly a third of my generation is missing. We are missing brothers, sisters, cousins, friends, husbands and wives.

You see, Miss Weddington’s generation got it wrong. In attempting to correct gender inequality in the workplace and in our society, they set into motion the ultimate act of discrimination – abortion. Instead of glorifying motherhood, they pitted the mother against her child, creating an endless cycle of selfishness, pain, and deceit.

But this generation is determined to set it right. We’ve seen the ultrasounds of our siblings, googled “abortion” and seen the bloody images, and sat with a friend as she cried about her abortion. This youth generation is the most pro-life generation of young people since 1973; we’re even more pro-life than even our parents’ generation. And this week our presence will be known as this generation will be the predominant participants in Wednesday’s March for Life in Washington, D.C. and pro-life rallies across the nation.

This week, we will be proudly carrying our “I am the Pro-Life Generation” signs, and Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry will watch their target audience slip away.

In fact, we already have. When Nancy Keenan, the former president of NARAL/Pro-Choice America, announced her resignation last year, she cited the lack of young pro-abortion leaders as the reason she wanted to step down. This month’s Time magazine headline story dealt with the same problem, claiming that the pro-abortion movement has been losing since 1973.

And last week’s new Planned Parenthood video and talking points on abortion confirm this fact. They don’t want to use the term “pro-choice” anymore because it’s too negatively associated with abortion. You see, they know when abortion is mentioned, their favorability falls. Their goal? Never bring it up.

So, what should be our goal? To bring up abortion in every conversation we can – in church, the grocery store, at school, and at the neighborhood party. To never forget about abortion, no matter how busy our lives may get or how sad or immobilized we become by this immense, overwhelming tragedy.

Friend, it’s time to rise up. Rise up off of your couch, out of your dorm room, or pew. Rise up and dedicate your life to something bigger than yourself.

This is the first time I have declared a position regarding the issue of Abortion.

I think I may have had the choice of an abortion of my son over fifty years ago.

It would have been done illegally but it was tendered to me by my sweetheart's Mother.

I chose to get married and now have a son of whom I am very proud and he happens to be my best friend.

We grew up together and have enjoyed/endured many ups and downs together on our journey through this life on this Earth.

I thank God for everything.

JimmyMack commented on Wednesday, Jan 22, 2014 at 11:30 AM

I will say again, "I think whether to have an abortion or not is a decision that should be made between the mother, her doctor, the father that is hopefully in her life and her faith."

I trust you took these considerations in your decision Tot.

timeontarget commented on Wednesday, Jan 22, 2014 at 16:57 PM

Well I've always thought that an abortion should be the result of a decision of a female who has consulted with her GOD.

timeontarget commented on Wednesday, Jan 22, 2014 at 17:06 PM

I believe that there are conditions where it is acceptable.

But if a loose woman gets "knocked up" she needs to endure the burden of motherhood.

Or practice discipline.

We are responsible for our behavior.

JimmyMack commented on Thursday, Jan 23, 2014 at 15:10 PM

@Tot: "result of a decision of a female who has consulted with her God." Are you saying Tot that the father of the baby has no say about his child?" Are you saying that the woman's life is unimportant since in some cases (if you have never heard it), a woman can DIE giving birth to a child?" So tell the mother she must have the baby buy she's got to die in order to give birth?!!!

"she needs to endure the burden of motherhood..." Are you saying all children are BURDENS?" I think that many people, women and fathers relish parenthood and do not see it as a BURDEN.

What if she is raped by her brother Tot?

You see Tot, it is just this sort of personal moral certitude of yours that abandons reasonable thought and proper contemplation when it is needed that galls me. Your buffoonery is not funny. It is down right scary and reckless.

I find it reprehensible, backward and totally lacking in empathy.

JimmyMack commented on Thursday, Jan 23, 2014 at 15:49 PM

@tOT: "I think that I may have had the choice of an abortion of my son over fifty years ago." So you the MALE made the decision along with your sweethearts mother???!!! What did the mother have to say?

So you got YOUR SWEETHEART pregnant BEFORE marriage too, huh TOT? Where is your moral certitude in that DECISION??
Sex before marriage is a no no isn't it Tot?

Shotgun marriage was it?

I am flabbergasted by the sheer denial of the depth of your nonsense.

JimmyMack commented on Thursday, Jan 23, 2014 at 16:21 PM

TOT: "If a loose woman gets knocked-up she needs to endure the BURDEN of motherhood. Are women that have sex before marriage loose Tot??

Did you have sex before marriage Tot?

If so what do we call you and the person you had sex with?

You Tot, are your own worst enemy.

You are a Giant Billboard of ignorance!

timeontarget commented on Thursday, Jan 23, 2014 at 16:39 PM

In case you in your "state of mind" have not noticed.

Tot has ceased to comment on your blogs.

I'd like to but your vicious personal attacks disgust me.

I think you are a sicko. I'm not, at least not documented. Are you?????????????

JimmyMack commented on Thursday, Jan 23, 2014 at 17:35 PM

YOur own words reveal your malignant sickness Tot.

And...if you must know... I ain't anywhere NEAR my capability regarding inflicting a personal attack.

If my blogs stop you from commenting then I have done my job here on these pages.

You ain't built for this.

sebekm commented on Sunday, Jan 26, 2014 at 14:03 PM

TOT: I saw the article as well, and I would have posted a blog using it if I wasn't otherwise occupied this past week. I was born in a place called the St. Vincent's Infant Asylum, which was located in downtown Chicago and run by the Roman Catholic archdiocese of the City of Chicago. If I was conceived after Roe v. Wade, it is very likely that I wouldn't be around this here blog site to torment you folks with my radical opinions. Kristan Hawkins speaks TRUTH. Abortion is not about "permitting a woman to control her own uterus" - it is about convenient solutions to irresponsible behavior. It is about a lame, lazy society who doesn't have the discipline or guts to do what is right, and it is about unnecessary and wrongful death.

It appears that the people of this country are starting to see the light, as indicated by this article: http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/...

It was also announced a few months ago that abortion clinics are closing across the country at a "record pace." See: http://www.bloomberg.com/quicktake/ab...

IMHO - this is a good thing. Abortion as an instrument of national birth control policy is a MISTAKE. It is wrong, and no U.S Supreme Court decision ever made it right. It just made for an easy solution for the undisciplined, irresponsible progeny that our society has permitted to flourish under the guise of "reproductive rights." One of my fondest hopes is that I will live long enough to see Roe vs. Wade repealed. A society which doesn't value ALL human life - and which tries to continually weasel-word the definition of "human life" to suite the lazy, the undisciplined and the irresponsible - will never afford full "human rights" and justice to those who are fortunate enough to survive its system of death.

I am a survivor - by happenstance. Under Roe vs. Wade, I likely would be one of the unnamed, discarded human "waste" which results. I welcome Kristan Hawkins statement that "(her) generation is determined to set it right." IMHO - that is long overdue.

Glad you are back Sebe.

Abortion: do you hold the same view regarding pregnancies as a result of rape, incest, or births that entail a death prognosis for the mother?

timeontarget commented on Monday, Jan 27, 2014 at 07:00 AM

sebekm thank you for your thoughtful and as usual enlightened response.

When I read that 55 million abortions had been performed since 1973 I was shocked.

Glad that you were so fortunate.

I do believe in birth control by whatever method chosen by the female.

Abortion is not simply birth control.

JimmyMack I know you directed this question to sebekm, however I TOT will respond that , no I do not.

sebekm commented on Monday, Jan 27, 2014 at 14:40 PM

"Abortion: do you hold the same view regarding pregnancies as a result of rape, incest, or births that entail a death prognosis for the mother?"

No - my gripe is with widespread, wholesale abortion as an instrument of national birth control policy. My gripe is with "Abortion On Demand" as an societally-accepted remedy to a natural outcome which takes seriously what was poked at in "fun." I take exception to the fraudulent excuse that - as a society - to demand that our citizens act responsibly and to THINK AHEAD is tantamount to a "war on women" and "wanting to control a woman's uterus." All of this - and more - is what Roe v. Wade stands for, and I think it is despicable.
