39 years, 54 million lives

Yesterday marked the 39th anniversary of the passing of Roe vs. Wade in the United States. A decision that has allowed the destruction of millions of unborn children, an estimated 54 million to date. And our president rejoices. Saying,

"As we mark the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we must remember that this Supreme Court decision not only protects a woman’s health and reproductive freedom, but also affirms a broader principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters. I remain committed to protecting a woman’s right to choose and this fundamental constitutional right. While this is a sensitive and often divisive issue- no matter what our views, we must stay united in our determination to prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant woman and mothers, reduce the need for abortion, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption. And as we remember this historic anniversary, we must also continue our efforts to ensure that our daughters have the same rights, freedoms, and opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams."

John Piper said it more eloquently than I ever could, three years ago when President Obama released a very similar statement in celebration of legalized abortion. Press play to listen.
