Abortion is legal, but it’s certainly not right

The annual March for Life takes place in Washington, D.C., on Friday, the same date as in 1973 when the Supreme Court made the decision to legalize abortion in all 50 states as a result of Roe vs. Wade.

The Doe vs. Bolton and Webster vs. Reproductive Health Services decisions made abortion legal until just about the moment of birth. They call it "partial birth abortion." Why is this not called murder? If a person is shot and killed while leaving a residence with one foot out the door, is it not considered murder even though most of his body had not passed through yet? We are talking a difference of only minutes in the birthing process.

Everyone should be made to see a filming of a full-term abortion and the grotesque procedure that takes place to end the life of an innocent being. Would anyone then be able to come to the defense of this barbaric practice? How some doctors, taking an oath to save lives, can participate in these "authorized crimes" is beyond me.

Just because something is "legal" doesn't make it morally right. I wonder how they sleep at night.
