41 years ago, nine men in black robes sentenced countless Americans to die before those Americans were even born. Over those 41 years, science has increasingly affirmed that a fetus is, in fact, a rapidly developing human being, even from the point of conception.
Roe v. Wade, in emphasizing the so-called "rights" of woman, snatched away the right to life that the writers of the Declaration of Independence deemed to be inalienable. Having two friends who survived attempted abortions (one of whom having been conceived as a result of rape), I know that children of unplanned pregnancies can live happy, meaningful lives. In fact, both of my friends strongly oppose abortion. They'll eagerly tell you of their gratitude that they made it to birth.
The Supreme Court, on January 22, 1973. made sure that multitudes of people wouldn't enjoy life as my two friends do. And despite mounting scientific evidence that fetuses are actual human beings, I'm losing hope for a reversal of this ghoulish decision. Please, let my despair be wrong!
