You’ve probably heard a lot about the ‘Women’s March’ that took place in our nation’s capitol over the weekend, but the mainstream media is far less focused on another demonstration which took place at the same location just days before — the March for Life.
The March for Life is a decades-long tradition for pro-life Americans who feel that Roe v. Wade — the Supreme Court decision which effectively legalized abortion in the United States — was one of the lowest points in our country’s history. The demonstration did not turn violent. No cars were flipped over or set on fire. No one in black masks threw bricks through windows. It was a simple gathering of individuals standing up for what they say is the civil rights issue of our time — the fight for the rights of the unborn.
With the pro-life cause in focus, it’s worth taking a look back and the forces that made abortion legal, and the cultural factors that have changed our perception of the killing of babies in the womb drastically over the years. In the 1990s, then-First Lady Hillary Clinton could be heard saying that abortion must be kept “safe, legal, and rare”. Fast-forward to 2019, and you see radical feminists taking pride in the fact that they’ve had abortions, and are calling for all women to feel the same way.
Clearly, the cultural damage hasn’t been subtle.
