Herman Cain blasts Roe v. Wade
Senate candidate defends the life of unborn children and calls conservatives to action
January 22, 2004
Herman Cain, conservative Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, issued the following statement on the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision of Roe v. Wade:
Today we mourn the murder of millions of innocent lives because of the decision made 31 years ago by the United States Supreme Court to give doctors the right to end the life of an unborn child. Unbelievably, the decision of Roe v. Wade shows that our Nation still chooses to place human convenience over the sanctity of human life.
No great nation can prosper when life is not valued. Once the Supreme Court decided that the right to life was obsolete, the very basis of our country was lost. A civilized society is marked by its treatment of the defenseless. When the most innocent of human life, the life of an unborn child, can be ended for the sake of convenience, the moral fabric of our society is destroyed.
The Declaration of Independence is very clear: We have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Our Founding Fathers understood that order.
You can pursue happiness as long as you do not infringe upon someone elses liberty. You can have liberty as long as you do not infringe upon someone elses life. And life begins at conception.
How many great accomplishments and discoveries have been lost because of legalized abortion? Have we missed finding the cure for cancer because a life was ended prematurely? Did we lose the next Albert Einstein, Ronald Reagan, Amelia Earhart or Martin Luther King, because the legal termination of life continues? As long as legalized killings are permitted, we not only lose a life, we lose all the potential that life has to offer. Not only do individuals suffer, the United States as a country suffers every time an abortion occurs.
Infanticide will continue as long as our society accepts the lie that a mother has the right to terminate a childs life. These women are sadly comforted by the blanket of Roe v. Wade. But there is still hope. If people today will continue to unite together to fight against legalized abortion and make their voices heard, we can make a difference. Life needs to be respected and celebrated, not terminated.
