This month many of you will march for life, in Washington DC and in your own towns and cities. The day will come when Roe v Wade will be overturned. The Court could say that the people can decide whether abortion should be legal in their own state. But the Court could also rule that the unborn child must be protected as a person under the 14th Amendment, just like the born must be protected. The Roe v Wade decision itself admits that if the unborn child can be shown to be a person, abortion cannot be legal at all. Reversal of this disastrous decision remains a key goal for which the Church and the pro-life movement continue to work and pray. As pro-life people march this month in various events, let’s renew our commitment to that goal.
