The most defenseless

We have just witnessed the 47th anniversary of Roe v. Wade and Dole v. Bolton that allowed the cold-blooded, clinical execution of the most innocent, most defenseless, and most vulnerable human being. These decisions undermine the very foundation of all law relating to the protection of human life. Supreme Court Justice Byron White, an appointee of JFK at the time, described it as “an exercise in raw judicial power.” I would go further and call it the greatest exercise in raw judicial power ever.

In my view, the legality of killing a child in the womb is more of a service and convenience for the worst of men, be it aggressive husbands, boyfriends, playboys or greedy abortionists, while it devalues women and, certainly, motherhood.
