'Every Single One of Us'?

Obama's words marking the Roe anniversary fall utterly short.

On the Roe v Wade anniversary Friday, Barack Obama declared he would defend abortion laws against “efforts to undermine or overturn them.” He also said, “In America, every single one of us deserves the rights, freedoms and opportunities to fulfill our dreams.”

Apparently not “every single one of us.”

Slaves and indentured servants lacked Civil Rights in America in the 19th century because their standing was considered less than human. In “Abortion and the Conscience of the Nation,” Ronald Reagan wrote, “Lincoln recognized that we could not survive as a free land when some men could decide that others were not fit to be free and should be slaves. Likewise, we cannot survive as a free nation when some men decide that others are not fit to live and should be abandoned to abortion.”

Jews lacked Civil Rights in Russia and Germany between 1917 and 1945 because their standing was considered less than human. Indeed, history is replete with the slaughter of innocents who were considered less than human. The killing of 58 million babies before birth since Roe is now one of the ugliest chapters in that history.

Meanwhile, the Leftmedia generally ignored the fact that tens of thousands of people gathered in Washington, DC, Friday — undaunted in the face of the oncoming blizzard — to March for Life. The Washington Post called it “a small, faithful crowd.” It’s true the crowd was smaller than in previous years, though with the weather shutting down many transportation methods that’s to be expected. What is also completely expected by now is for the national media to ignore the movement of public opinion on the issue of life.
