'Abortion is ... is not worthy of commemoration'

    I found it an interesting choice of words that the President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater NY chose to use “commemorate” in her reflection on the anniversary of Roe vs Wade.

    To commemorate is to recall, honor and respect that which is virtuous and good.

    Abortion is neither.

    Abortion is “the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy,” which is not worthy of commemoration.

    Abortion is not “basic health care” as the CEO subtly suggests, but it’s an abomination that our country sadly continues to endure.

    Since that fateful day more than 60 million Americans have been killed in their mother’s womb and countless women who regret their abortions continue to suffer physically and emotionally - something Planned Parenthood persistently fails to acknowledge.

    Planned Parenthood will continue to “commemorate” January 22, 1973, as their day of victory, but a hollow victory it was, as even “Jane Roe” herself, the late Norma McCorvey, eventually realized “... that the entire abortion industry is based on a lie....”
