Another Sad Day in January

January 22nd is always a sober day in which to remember the millions of lives that have been lost since the legalization of abortion in 1973. The statistics themselves are staggering when we consider that close to 57 million babies have been aborted in the 41 years that followed the decision. I read today that the number of abortions in a year in New York City would fill the seating capacity of the Super Bowl stadium in New Jersey, close to 83,000.

It is indeed mind boggling. Yet we need to reflect upon the reality that each individual tiny person is an immense loss in and of themselves, not to mention the impact that they will never have on their families and on our wider society.

May God help us all and may there someday be a generation that will not have to ride buses all day and fill the streets of our nation’s capital with their marching to mark another sorrowful anniversary.

This video gives us a little history and also a little hope:

    Cindy, I so agree. I remember when Roe vs Wade was passed. I thought surely the government would come to their senses and reverse it very soon. I was young and naive! Sad to say I’ve lived my entire adult life with this holocaust mounting year after year. I don’t think I’ll live to see it overturned. I hope my son, or my granddaughter (yes, one is on the way…at last!) will have that amazing privilege. I am so weary of abortion…so tired of this killing of innocents being protected by law. May God help us soon! God bless you.

      Yes, Patricia, we need help soon!
      On a happier note, congratulations on your granddaughter. We will pray that the pregnancy and delivery proceed well. What a joy!
