Today marks the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, and affirms a fundamental principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters.
I am committed to protecting this constitutional right. I also remain committed to policies, initiatives, and programs that help prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant women and mothers, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption.
And on this anniversary, I hope that we will recommit ourselves more broadly to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights, the same freedoms, and the same opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.
These are words from President Obama today. I wasn’t aware that killing was a constitutional right. If that’s the case, then why do we prosecute and put to death those who exercise their constitutional rights when they commit murder?
On this day, let us remember the more than 53 million who were aborted and had their constitutional rights taken away from them.
