Roe v Wade, Forty Years After

Have you heard of the "Liverpool Care Pathway" used by the UK's government hospitals? It's a little like end of life abortion. The patient is denied fluids and injections and powerful muscle-relaxing drugs are injected in increasing doses. The average time between inception and death is 28 hours. When it was adopted for the entire UK about 15 years ago, the proposers "said" it would be used only if the family consented and the patient was hopelessly compromised. Not so, according to many anecdotal stories on the UK Daily Mail. A recent story showed this was used on babies born full term but with very diffficult congenital issues - it told the story - it takes 10 days for a infant to die of drhydration - and the staff is traumatized.

The number forty has great significance in the Bible.

Perhaps best known is the forty years that the Israelites were condemned to wander in the desert before being permitted entry into the Promised Land.

Maybe this mystical quantity will bear significance as we note, this month, the fortieth year since the Roe v Wade decision legalized abortion in America.

Forty years we have lived with the silent, and sometimes not so silent, holocaust in our midst as the lives of 55 million innocent and unborn children have been killed, plucked from their journey to enter this world.

Who were they? Who...
