Fifty-one years ago today the US Supreme Court decided it was okay to kill babies in the womb.  We now know the Roe v Wade decision was based on lies.  However, during the time Roe was considered “the law of the land” over sixty-five million Americans were killed.  How many of those would now be working, paying taxes, paying into Social Security and having families of their own paying into the system?  Could the financial crisis facing Social Security and Medicare have been averted if Roe had been decided differently? 

On January 22, 1973 the U.S. Supreme Court issued its ruling in Roe v. Wade, finding that a “right of privacy” it had earlier discovered was “broad enough to encompass” a right to abortion and adopting a trimester scheme of pregnancy. In the first trimester, a state could enact virtually no regulation. In the second trimester, the state could enact some regulation, but only for the purpose of protecting maternal “health.” In the third trimester, after viability, a state could ostensibly “proscribe” abortion, provided it made exceptions to preserve the life and “health” of the woman seeking abortion. Issued on the same day, Doe v. Bolton defines “health” to mean “all factors” that affect the woman, including “physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman’s age.”

On the fifty-first anniversary of the Roe v Wade decision, President Joe Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris made it their mission to promote abortion on demand and decry the Dobbs decision which threw the 1973 Roe decision out and  the abortion question back to the states.  Here in PA pro-death legislators took the opportunity to begin circulating co-sponsorship memos to repeal most of the Commonwealth’s Abortion Control Act and remove many of the regulations controlling abortion clinics that were put in place after exposure of Philadelphia’s House of Horrors and the conviction of abortionist Kermit Gosnell.  Names such as Reproductive Freedom Act and Removing Unnecessary Obstacles to Safe Abortion Access show how deceptive the anti-life crowd is.  Killing a baby is not reproductive freedom and treating abortion facilities as ambulatory surgical units is not an obstacle, but a safeguard that prevents another House of Horrors in Pennsylvania.
