Unprecedented Child Sacrifice Is a Dark and Guilty Stain on Our Nation’s Conscience
By Dr. Richard Land
Yesterday was the 45th anniversary of the infamous Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in America. And although the approximately 60 million lives lost since then are a stain on American history, God can have mercy and forgive this national sin—if we repent.
There is encouraging news that the country as a whole is becoming more pro-life. A Marist poll has found that a broad consensus has emerged among the American public concerning severely restricting abortion on demand. For example, 81 percent of Americans agree that there should be “significant restrictions,” which include limiting abortions to the first three months of pregnancy, and with exceptions only in cases of rape, incest and to save the life of the mother. Perhaps most encouraging, more than three out of four Americans—77 percent—including 71 percent of self-identified pro-choice supporters, say that they believe that the law “can protect both a mother and her unborn child.” Only 17 percent of Americans disagree with that position. So adamant opposition to significantly restricting abortion in America under the law amounts to only 17 percent of the American population, down considerably from even 10 or 20 years ago. The battle for hearts and minds continues, and life is winning.
