As the nation marks the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that struck down a Texas law — and by extension, all states’ laws —that had criminalized abortion, the debate between those who uphold the right to life of the unborn and those who assert that a woman’s right to “choose” must be paramount, continues. And there is a category of individuals for whom the abortion issue is perhaps the most personal of all: those who have survived attempted abortions.

In Egypt a woman and her seven children have been imprisoned for converting to Christianity, while in North Korea, two Christians were killed for their faith.

A British mother whose doctors suggested she should abort her baby chose life instead after watching her pre-born son smile during an ultrasound.

About 500 people took part in the March for Life in the capital city of Concord, New Hampshire, Saturday under a sunny sky and temperatures slightly below freezing, but moderate for a January afternoon in northern New England.

 

 

Hundreds of thousands of pro-life individuals will mark the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade with rallies, marches, and prayer vigils, remembering the over 50 million babies who have been aborted since 1973.
