I came across this on the Drudge report this morning and I think it is worth reading and considering.

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.

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.

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?????????????

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.

timeontarget commented on Monday, Jan 27, 2014 at 07:06 AM

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?

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