46 Years Marching For Life

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 17, 2018

         THE ANNUAL MARCH FOR LIFE TAKES PLACE TOMORROW IN WASHINGTON. IT’S BEEN 46 YEARS SINCE THE SUPREME COURT STRUCK DOWN ALL PROTECTIONS FOR BABIES BEFORE THEY ARE BORN.

         THIS HAS CONTRIBUTED TO A CALOUSNESS ABOUT HUMAN LIFE AT EVERY LEVEL OF CULTURE. IT HAS ALSO FUELED ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. COMPANIES AND FARMERS NEED WORKERS AND AMERICANS ARE NOT HAVING ENOUGH BABIES TO FILL THE NEED.

         THE ARGUMENTS HAVEN’T CHANGED IN 46 YEARS, BUT THE TECHNOLOGY AND PREGNANCY HELP CENTERS HAVE HELPED THE PRO-LIFE CAUSE. THE ABORTION RATE HAS DECLINED AND INCRESING NUMBERS OF YOUNG PEOPLE ARE PRO-LIFE, FAVORING RESTRICTIONS ON THE PROCEDURE.

         IT’S DIFFICULT TO PREDICT WHAT A CONSERVATIVE COURT WILL DO, ESPECIALLY IF ANOTHER CONSERVATIVE JUDGE MAKES IT TO THE BENCH. AS I HAVE OFTEN SAID, ABORTION IS NOT THE CAUSE OF OUR DECADENCE, BUT A REFLECTION OF IT. A NATION THAT FOCUSES ON SELF AND NOT GOD IS CAPABLE OF ANYTHING.

         IT IS DISCOURAGING THAT SO-CALLED CIVIL RIGHTS LEADERS ARE FINE WITH ABORTION WHEN IT HAS DECIMATED THE BLACK COMMUNITY MORE THAN STREET VIOLENCE. SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL PREGNANCY HELP CENTER. I’M CAL THOMAS.
