of our nearly 400,000 subscribers will receive this special NRL News
edition around the time of the 29th anniversary of the infamous Roe
v. Wade decision. That will be a somber occasion, for Roe
"bruised the soul of America," as Jean Garton once observed,

As they have been so often in the 28 years since Roe v. Wade, abortion rights supporters are once again on the defensive. Says Lynn Paltrow, executive director of National Advocates for Pregnant Women [a project of the pro-abortion Women's Law Center], "There's no radical left anymore screaming, 'Free abortions on demand!'" The anti-abortion right scored its first public-opinion grab in 1995, with the bold war over so-called " partial-birth abortion."

The kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out at dawn to hire laborers for his vineyard. After agreeing with them for the usual daily wage, he sent them into the vineyard. Going out about nine o'clock, he saw others standing idle in the marketplace, and said to them, "You too go into my vineyard, and I will give you what is just." So they went off. He went out again around noon, and around three o'clock, and did likewise. Going out about five o'clock, he found others standing around, and said to them, "Why do you stand here idle all day?" They answered, "Because no one has hired us." He said to them, "You too go into my vineyard."

is now 29 years since an arrogant and overreaching Supreme Court handed
the pro-abortionists a victory with Roe v. Wade and Doe v.
Bolton--an unearned victory, through the constitutional back door,
so to speak. This, of course, was more than ill- intentioned judicial
referees throwing a legal game: It was a frontal assault on life itself.
