25 Reasons

By Darla St. Martin

Twenty-five years ago on January 22, 1973, the pro-abortion celebrated their complete and final victory - - or so they thought. The Supreme Court had settled the abortion question once and for all. It had struck down every protective abortion law in the country, and it looked inevitable that the lives of other vulnerable persons would be in imminent danger as well.

A national newspaper column once carried a letter from the mother of two young sons. It told of how, at a mall one day, a stranger observed that her boys didn't look at all alike. Her six-year-old took it upon himself to explain the difference. "I'm adopted," he said. "That's when you have the same family but not the same face."

25 Years of
Roe v. Wade
The Cultural Collapse

With the birth of every child, the world becomes new again. Within each new infant lies enormous potential­potential for loving, for learning, and for making life better for others. But this potential must be nurtured. Just as seeds need fertile soil, warm sunshine, and gentle rain to grow, so do our children need a caring environment, the security of knowing they are loved , and the encouragement and opportunity to make the most of their God-given talents. There is no more urgent task before us, as a people and as a Nation, than creating such an environment for America's children.
