January 22nd marks 40 years since Roe v. Wade made the right to abortion the law of the land. Columbia Magazine reported that
Although the violence that the decision has wrought is largely hidden from public view, abortion has claimed more than 55 million innocent lives - and has wounded countless more hearts - in the United States since 1973. On average, more children are killed through elective abortion every year under Roe v. Wade than the American death toll of every war in the nation's history combined and more innocent lives in America are lost to abortion every day than perished in the attacks of 9/11. Acknowledging this fact does not diminish the horrors of wars or terrorist attacks, but simply illustrates how utterly incomprehensible abortion's impact really is.
Where are the flags at half-mast, the public-outcry, the horror at the atrocity? How can people stand by and allow this to continue? Please pray and work to end abortion.
