On January 22, we recognize the somber anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision to federally legalize abortion in 1973. Though this is an important and consequential occurrence that should be acknowledged, it is not the linchpin of the pro-life movement like I once believed.
If Roe vs. Wade is overturned, as I hope it will be, abortions will still be legal in many states, and a vast portion of the United States population will yet have the choice to participate in an abortion. While legal wrangling in our future will continue to go back and forth, one state at a time, it is the hearts of Americans that are in balance.
Abortion must be eliminated one heart at a time. God, turn our hearts to the children.
