Right to Life welcomes the six to three decision of the United States Supreme Court to overturn the notorious Roe v Wade decision of 1973.
The overthrow of Roe v Wade acknowledges the right of States to legislate to protect women from the violence of abortion and their unborn children from being killed before birth. There are 19 States that would ban abortion and 7 that would severely restrict abortion.
The Roe v Wade decision written by Justice Harry Blackmun in 1973 constitutes one of the most unjust decisions ever made by the Court, It was badly decided, violated the Constitution of the United States, had no basis in the law or history of the United States or in English Common Law. International law is silent on abortion and there is no human right to abortion.
The Roe v Wade decision unleashed on the United States a 49 year reign of terror of violence on women and their unborn. Since 1973 more than 64 million unborn children in the United States have been poisoned, sucked out of their mother’s womb or been violently dismembered, this was a violation of human rights and a crime against humanity.
The overthrow of Roe v Wade is a victory for a culture of life and a defeat for the culture of death, it recognises that the unborn child is a human being endowed with a right to life, deserving of respect and protection. The repercussions will reverberate throughout the world including New Zealand. This overthrow will herald a new age of respect for women and for their precious unborn who are created in the image and likeness of their Creator.
Right to Life is committed to continue campaigning for legal recognition of the unborn child as a human being endowed with a right to life from implantation and for the repeal of the extremist anti-life Abortion Legislation Act 2019.
We need to show that we can create a world where we can love children and not kill them. A world where adoption is always a better option, a world where we care for women and their children. This is our opportunity to make the grisly performance of abortion like slavery unthinkable in a civilised modern society.
