Remembering 32 Years and 45 Million Deaths
In the United States, over 45 million pre-born children have been killed since the Jan. 22, 1973 Supreme Court Decision that legalized surgical abortion. Each year, nearly 20,000 abortions are performed after the 21st week of pregnancy.

Preparing for the anniversary I wrote an article considering the Humanity of the Pre-Born. One of my conclusions is that "the pre-born’s distinction from an adult is one of maturation, which is not a characteristic that adds value to the human kind. Therefore, those who are yet to be born are as valuable as those who are born and abortion or the destruction of an embryo is as much a crime as the murder of an adult. A society that can justify the killing of a certain kind of human will, over time, become more consistent in its belief system and aggressive in its oppression of the weak and helpless."
What about the 45 million?
Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked. - Psalm 82:4
Captain Ed concludes, "Perhaps on this anniversary, we can not only reflect on the 43 million victims of our love affair with expediency over human life, we can also ponder the resultant society we will see if we continue to allow unelected judges to trump the voice of the people in the legislature." Amen
