This month marks the 25th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion on demand in
all 50 states. Perhaps this is an appropriate moment to
reflect upon the significance of this most famous and controversial
of modern constitutional cases. The road from Roe has been long,
complicated and emotional. What revealing cultural signs may we
view today as symbols of its now quarter-century-long legacy?
Consider the following: 1) The federal government refuses any
restrictions on abortion, even at the moment of birth; 2)
Regular news accounts tell us of incidents in which mothers abandon
or even kill their own newborns; 3) On the other side of the spectrum,
a certain doctor cannot be convicted of murder in any degree as he
proudly ends the life of his patients. Do we in fact live in what
some have designated as the "Culture of Death"? We have put
together a special focus on this issue.
The Council on Biblical Manhood and
Womanhood is dedicated to the Biblical principles of complementarity
in male-female relationships and roles.
