    Surge Summary: January 22nd marks the forty-eighth anniversary of the Supreme Court’s egregious Roe v. Wade abortion decision. It marks the second time in U.S. history the High Court has decreed one category of people to not be fully human beings. Meantime, President Trump departed office with one last pro-life gesture.

    [Friday was] National Sanctity of Human Life Day.  The day marks the somber anniversary 48 years ago of the Supreme Court’s notorious Roe v. Wade decision effectively legalizing abortion on demand in America.

    Twice in our nation’s history the Supreme Court has ruled that a whole class of individuals were not “people” and thus were not covered by the promises of the American founding.  The first occasion was the Dred Scott case.

    In 1857, the Supreme Court ruled that Scott, a black slave who for many years resided in free states, was property, not a person, so he had to be returned to his “owner.”  The poison released by that decision almost destroyed the nation.

    In 1973, the court did it again.  It ruled that unborn children were not “people” deserving of protection under the law.  The poison of that decision is eating away at our souls too.

    Sadly, the left refuses to recognize the gross injustice of abortion.  It celebrates the destruction of innocent unborn children, and demands that men and women of faith be forced to subsidize the annual slaughter of hundreds of thousands of children.

    Before leaving office, President Trump issued a proclamation recognizing [January 22nd] as National Sanctity of Human Life Day.  I’m glad he did because you know the current occupant of the Oval Office won’t.

    Trump urged each of us to “celebrate and support every heroic mother who chooses life,” and to defend “every innocent and unborn child, each of whom can bring unbelievable love, joy, beauty, and grace into our nation and the entire world.”
