More: As someone who’s pro-choice myself, noting this fact is uncomfortable for me, but it is nevertheless a fact: Since Roe v. Wade, 55 million fetuses (or babies) have been aborted.
40 years ago today, seven men on the Supreme Court decided in favor of a case presented to them from a 27 year-old, unknown, post-abortive lawyer, Sarah Weddington. That case was Roe v. Wade and, along with its companion Doe v. Bolton, it legalized abortion in all 9 months of pregnancy, for any reason, in the United States.
Today, this 27 year-old is writing to you as a survivor of that decision. The undeniable fact is that nearly a third of my generation is missing. We are missing brothers, sisters, cousins, friends, husbands and wives.
I’m pro-choice (with conditions) and this bothers me, too.
It should bother anybody who actually thinks about it.
