Those expecting this year’s Women’s March on Washington to be a gathering that welcomes all women will be disappointed. Instead, they’ll find a monolith of thought almost exclusively focused on pro-abortion ideology. Sadly, from the beginning, the march has been about extremism.
It should come as no surprise that this year’s March would make support for abortion its macabre theme. “We are witnessing the most dire threat to abortion access in our lifetime,” organizers decry. “We need to send an unmistakable message about our fierce opposition to restricting abortion access and overturning Roe v. Wade before it’s too late.” (And of course, Planned Parenthood, which benefits financially from abortion, is helping to organize the event.)
On the docket this term at the Supreme Court is a modest limit on abortions after 15 weeks.
In the five decades since Roe v. Wade, medical science has made stunning advances. We now know that a baby’s heart starts to beat around five weeks, and a recent study found that babies could experience pain as early as 12 weeks.
