Watching the March for Life on EWTN. For a number of years I have been there with my daughters and once with my son Jim too. This year we had several conflicts and it didn't work out.
The March is such an amazing event. The number of people is just mind boggling.
It's such a hopeful event. It's been 40 years since Roe vs. Wade. I remember when it came down. I graduated from high school in 1973. It was not long before that the people of Michigan had passed a measure outlawing abortion in our state. My parents had been involved in the campaign. They were devastated. It was such a demonstration of judicial activism overriding the democratic process. I remember my father asking how the Supreme Court could possibly do that. The people of Michigan had spoken. What right had the Supreme Court to override the will of the people. Where on Earth in the Constitution is a right to abortion, etc.
Some 55 million babies have died. How could this still be going on. People have become so confused. They don't seem to understand the difference between right and wrong anymore. We know that human life begins at conception. We've always known that. Now we can even see the baby in great detail on ultrasound. And still people claim that the unborn child is not a person.
When will this end. It's a travesty of justice. A horrible scourge on our county. It is an abuse of women and womanhood.
Lord have mercy.
