What is Airing on Pro—Life Perspective Today? “39 Years of Roe v. Wade”

NRLC President Carol Tobias

In the last program of the week, National Right to Life President and Pro-Life Perspective Host Carol Tobias begins with a profound and provocative statement:

“In the two foundational documents of our republic [the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution] two fundamental questions were addressed:  ‘Who are we?’ and’ How shall we govern ourselves?’”

Mrs. Tobias uses the answers as a way of showing how Roe v. Wade is radically at odds with both.

“The Declaration of Independence gave us an answer to the first question:  We are all created equal, ‘endowed by the Creator with certain unalienable Rights’ and ‘among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.’  And the Constitution answered the second questions:  Ours is a government ‘ordained’ and ‘established’ by the ‘people,’ delegating the power to govern to three separate branches: legislative, executive, and judicial.”

Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton mean “The right to life is no longer ‘unalienable’ because an innocent unborn child can now be put to death for the convenience of the mother,” Mrs. Tobias explains. And Roe/Doe ran roughshod over the proposition that the people govern. The justices “acting as a self-appointed ‘super legislature’ overruled the duly elected state legislatures across the country and invalidated decades-old protections for unborn children.”

Today’s edition of Pro-Life Perspective is especially rich. The second half of the program examines all that the Movement has done and will continue to do to throw sand in the gears of the killing machinery until the day comes that legal protection is restored to the littlest American.
