"How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love." - BLESSED TERESA OF CALCUTTA

March for Life 2018

19 Jan 2018 | 11:15 am - 04:00 pm

We all are God’s children, made in his image and likeness, and that wherever life was threatened – violence, poverty, hunger, discrimination, abortion – God’s People defend it.

We’re often led to believe that Roe v. Wade merely legalized abortion in the first three months of pregnancy. The trouble is that the Roe Court actually said abortion must be allowed for any reason in the next three months as well. It then said laws against abortion must have a broad health exception even in the final “trimester,” but only described its breadth in the little known companion case, Doe v. Bolton, decided the same day. In Doe, the Court announced that health, for the purposes of late-term abortion law, would be synonymous with the mother’s “physical, emotional, psychological, familial … well being”-in other words, every reason a pregnant woman could give for seeking an abortion in the first place.
