Abortion was never legalized. The Roe v. Wade decision threw out the laws on the books in every state that had a law or restriction, but there never was a law, per se, legalizing it. There was just a void left that allowed abortions to be performed, preventing prosecution of the act.
Back in the day (late sixties), those who pushed for the abortion laws to be thrown out did so by mounting a campaign based on lies: fake polls, fake statistics (claiming the number of women who died from illegal abortions was around 10,000 per year, when in actuality it was 200-250 per year, for instance), constantly appealing to a woman's 'right' to privacy (which is not one of the 'rights' listed in the Constitution, by the way), and in so doing, trashed the Preamble to the Constitution, which expressly states the Constitution's purpose as guaranteeing the rights of "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" for "ourselves and for our posterity" (posterity = future generations). Every victim of abortion has been deprived of their right to life, as expressly stated in the Constitution.
The ultra liberal left element in society waged such a masterful media campaign, ensuring that their sinister objective was met, i.e., population control, political control of the masses, tax free cash (abortion is a cash up front procedure)for most of the "doctors" who perform abortions (there's an oxymoron since doctors take an oath "to do no harm"), harvesting human tissue, and in the case of partial-birth abortions, havesting body parts for research, after sucking out the brain, crushing the baby's head (making sure that the baby comes down the birth canal feet first, otherwise if the head came out first, it would "legally" be murder).
It's truly amazing what people can be brainwashed into considering acceptable if enough money is thrown into a media blitz, even one udergirded with lies.
Maybe we can get human fetuses declared an "endangered species", or a "species at risk" (a common cause of the ultra liberal left, for everything and anything except humans, it seems)?
Babies are killed, mothers, also victims of this well financed brainwashing scheme, live with the life-long scars of the guilt, regret and loss. Who are the winners in all of this? Not them, that's for sure. The so-called winners can be found where the power and money are found.
42 million babies and counting,(and of that number, 17 million black babies, the balance being spread out over all other races), not a "product of conception" or a "tissue mass", but human beings in the process of development, have been deprived of that right.
I hope to see the day when murder is again called murder and all future generations realize their right to life.
