55 Million Babies Killed Since Roe v. Wade

Kristan Hawkins writes a heartfelt article about the tragedy of Roe v. Wade:

I thought of the more than 55,000,000 lives that have been taken in the U.S. since 1973, and I became overwhelmed at the tragedy. Tragedy for the babies, their mothers, their fathers, families, and us.

Who is our nation missing? What price is our society paying for the ultimate deceit of abortion?

40 years ago today, seven men on the Supreme Court decided in favor of a case presented to them from a 27 year-old, unknown, post-abortive lawyer, Sarah Weddington. That case was Roe v. Wadeand, along with its companion Doe v. Bolton, it legalized abortion in all 9 months of pregnancy, for any reason, in the United States.

Today, this 27 year-old is writing to you as a survivor of that decision. The undeniable fact is that nearly a third of my generation is missing. We are missing brothers, sisters, cousins, friends, husbands and wives.

Isn’t that terrible?  A third of a generation.

Pray to end it.

Work to end it.

    Democrats could not kill us off fast enough in Vietnam, they resorted to Abortions. I find this so vile.

    • Carrie Geren Scoggins

      You refer to it as “population control,” when Democrats helped form the UN “World Council On Population,” meeting yearly in Cairo, Egypt. Yes it was Democrats…

  • Kristy Patullo

    That is absolutely astounding! Praying that more and more women are or will
    become pro-life.

    • Mlbc2930

      It works! Did you know that over 50% of the people of the USA do not agree with abortion on demand and only a very few believe in it under any circumstances? Gallup survey shows that Pro life rate is increasing This younger generation is very Pro-life. Did you watch the March for Life in DC? There were over 500,000 people in 10 degree weather, mostly people of college age and younger. Most had to earn money to pay their way. So it wasn’t an “I’ll go so I can get out of school day”.
      Yes ,there are people who actually pray that people will become pro life and one group that prays for abortion workers to leave their work. In fact a book will be published this Spring with the things former abortion workers have seen and heard . I think the title will be “If Walls Could Talk” written by a former Planned Parenthood Clinic manager.
      The power of prayer is amazing. As a nurse I have seen many patients that doctors gave up all hope but the patient’s family and church prayed. The doctor said It had to be God and your prayers. I can’t explain it. I know because my Dad was one of those patients .As Lord Tennyson said “More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of.”

    Awww, all that hypocritical whinery!
    I wonder when Bristol is going to write a similarly glowing article about financially supporting all those poor families with their unwanted children, for example by giving them access to affordable healthcare, food stamps, if the parents (mothers) are struggling to provide the food, as well as clothes and housing….
    After all, not everybody can just have a reality show or go on Dancing with the Stars….

    • Carrie Geren Scoggins

      While you are whining, remember we as tax payers already pay for birth control with our tax money! Free, and they do not even have to remember to take the pill daily, the shot is free and lasts 6 months!

      • cant_believe_it

        But all the babies that nobody wants and can feed, who will be paying for them?

        • Mlbc2930

          There are over 2000+ people waiting to adopt in the US on any given day. The key to eliminating many abortions is taking responsibility for our actions. Take for instance the advice my neighbor gave all of his 5 daughters, “Keep your eyes open and your legs shut until you say I Do in church before God and men . He raised 9 children with good morals and caring hearts, and none had to get married!

          • stimlin

            Shame your neighbor didn’t have that talk with Bristol.

    • wooters

      Procreation is one situation where we know what causes it. We have become a society where personal responsibility is becoming non-existent. If you cannot control yourself or make decisions about not getting pregnant prior to conceiving, adoption is a great option. The answer to someone’s recklessness is not that the government takes from those who are being responsible and gives to those who are not. Families need to step up and help raise children who are born to those within the family who need help. Absent fathers/mothers need to be made to pay for their children. If the person is a minor and chooses to keep their child, then it should be the responsibility of the minor’s parents to dig in and help. Government should only be involved as a last resort and on a limited basis.
      Are you angry with Bristol for doing the right thing? She loves her son and supports him. She is living proof that abortion is not necessary. Very few are performed because of a mother’s health.
      There is no safe abortion. Someone always loses their life.

      • wooters

        I am sure since you are so concerned about poor mothers and their children that you donate your money and time to those on your own. I bet you give to charities and are willing to work two or more jobs to take care of them. Many moms who are trying to support their children on their own and work do not qualify for benefits and end up working two jobs. They end up having to pay taxes to fund the programs for those who do not attempt to do it on their own. I know this, because I was one of those moms.
        The Palin’s are a great example for all families. They take care of their own, whether you like it or not.
        Proud of you Bristol!

        • Sheila

          they take care of their own by pimping themselves out on reality TV. They’re white trash.

  • mark nine

    these pro-abortion people are the same ones who wont eat tuna because a dolphin died.

  • mark nine

    The time is NOW to over turn Roe V.S,. Wade

  • Richard Smit

    it should be illegal in all cases! its evil!

    http://youtu.be/oxnJVyaFkrU 1/3 of the generation since Roe vs. Wade died in abortion clinics. ABORTION IS NOT A FREEDOM OF “CHOICE” ISSUE AS IT IS NOT A VICTIM-LESS CRIME, SO IT DOES NOT QUALIFY AS A CHOICE DEBATE. THERE IS A VICTIM, THE CHILD. A victim-less crime is an act that only affects the person committing said act, this is not so with abortions, therefore it does not qualify as a legitimate “choice” debate.

    Pardon all caps below, have vision problems and can not proof read unless in all caps, on tablet can not increase font size, can not zoom in on screen:

    THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY PLATFORM TAKES THE STANCE THAT ABORTION IF A FREEDOM OF PERSONAL CHOICE, OR “CHOICE ISSUES,” AND THIS IS A FARCE SINCE IT IS NOT A VICTIM LESS CRIME. A VICTIM-LESS CRIME ONLY AFFECTS THE PERSON COMMITTING THE ACT, AND IN ABORTION THERE IS A VICTIM, THE UNBORN CHILD. IN ORDER TO BE A “CHOICE ISSUE, IT MUST BE A VICTIM-LESS CRIME! ABORTION IS NOT!
    ABORTION IS NOT A “CHOICE,” ISSUE, AS IT IS NOT A VICTIM-LESS CRIME. VICTIM-LESS CRIMES ONLY AFFECT THE PERSON COMMITTING THE ACT. ABORTION HAVE A VICTIM, THE UNBORN CHILD!

    TAKING BIRTH CONTROL TO PREVENT PREGNANCY WOULD BE A FREEDOM OF CHOICE ISSUE, BUT ABORTION, TAKING THE UNBORN CHILD’S LIFE TERMINATING PREGNANCY IS NOT, AS ENDING THE PREGNANCY IS NOT A VICTIM-LESS CRIME. THE VICTIM IN THIS ACT IS THE UNBORN CHILD, SO ABORTION DOES NOT QUALIFY AS A PERSONAL CHOICE DEBATE.

    ABORTION IS NOT BIRTH CONTROL, BIRTH CONTROL IS THAT DONE ***BEFORE*** THE WOMAN BECOMES PREGNANT IN ORDER TO PREVENT PREGNANCY. ONCE THE WOMAN IS PREGNANT, THERE IS NOW ANOTHER LIFE TO CONSIDER. TAKING THE UNBORN CHILD’S LIFE IS THE TAKING OF ANOTHER HUMAN LIFE, ONE THAT IS UNABLE TO SPEAK FOR ITSELF.

    THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, AND OBAMA, HAVE NOW STATED THAT THEY WILL VETO THE PARTIAL BIRTH, AND LATE TERM, ABORTION BAN, KEEPING THESE BARBARIC ACTS LEGAL.
    OBAMA PASSED LAWS LEGALIZING THE ABORTION PILL AS “OVER THE COUNTER,” WITHOUT A PRESCRIPTION, TO ANY AGE GROUP, WITHOUT PARENTAL CONSENT, AND THEY WANT THESE ABORTION PILLS AVAILABLE IN THE SCHOOL SYSTEM. THIS IS THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY’S PLATFORM, TO KEEP ALL FORMS OF ABORTION LEGAL.

    THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY PLATFORM, THE BASIS OF POLITICAL STANCE OF THE WHOLE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, IS PRO-ABORTION, KEEPING IT LEGAL IN ALL FORMS, AND IF A CANDIDATE RUNS AS A DEMOCRAT TAKING MONEY FROM THAT PARTY, THEY HAVE TO VOTE TO KEEP ALL FORMS OF ABORTION LEGAL. VOTING DEMOCRAT MEANS VOTING TO KEEP ABORTION LEGAL IN ALL OF IT’S VARIOUS FORMS!

    THE BIBLE MAKES IT CLEAR, “THOSE WHO DO THESE THINGS, AND THOSE THAT SUPPORT THOSE THAT DO THESE THINGS,” MEANING IF YOU VOTE IN SUCH A WAY TO SUPPORT SINFUL BEHAVIOR, YOU ARE GUILTY OF THOSE ACTS YOURSELF. AS WITH ABORTION, “THEIR BLOOD IS UPON YOUR HANDS.”

    THE REPUBLICAN PARTY PLATFORM IS “PRO LIFE,” IN SUPPORT OF ENDING ABORTION! THEY CALL THE CHRISTIANS IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, MAKING THIS THEIR PARTY PLATFORM, THE “RELIGIOUS RIGHT,” AS THEY SUPPORT THE BIBLE’S STANCE CALLING THE TAKING OF A HUMAN LIFE A SINFUL ACT, AND MURDER. THE U.S. LAWS WERE BASED FROM BIBLICAL LAW, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, STATING MURDER IS ILLEGAL. THE TAKING OF A HUMAN LIFE IS AGAINST OUR UNITED STATES LAWS, AS THESE LAWS WERE BASED ON A BIBLICAL MORAL STANDARD.

    IN ORDER TO BE A “CHOICE” ISSUE, IT MUST FIRST BE A VICTIM-LESS CRIME. AN ACT ONLY AFFECTING THE PERSON COMMITTING SAID ACT. ABORTION IS NOT A VICTIM-LESS CRIME, AS THERE IS A VICTIM, ANOTHER HUMAN LIFE INVOLVED, THAT OF THE UNBORN CHILD. ABORTION DOES NOT QUALIFY AS A “CHOICE” ISSUE!

    OBAMA AND THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY MADE ABORTION PILLS LEGAL FOR ALL AGE GROUPS WITHOUT PARENTAL CONSENT, AND WITHOUT PRESCRIPTION, AS “OVER THE COUNTER,” AS OPPOSED TO THE REPUBLICAN STANCE OF “PRO LIFE,” HOPING TO END ABORTION!

    IF THE PRO LIFE REPUBLICANS GET LEGISLATION PASSED TO END LATE TERM, AND PARTIAL BIRTH, ABORTIONS, THE DEMOCRATS AND OBAMA STATED THAT THEY PLAN TO VETO THE BILL! DEMOCRATS WANT LATE TERM ABORTION AND PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION TO REMAIN LEGAL IN THE UNITED STATES!

  • Carrie Geren Scoggins

    NO, IT HAS TO BE A VICTIM-LESS CRIME IN ORDER TO QUALIFY AS A CHOICE DATE! A VICTIM-LESS CRIME IS ONE THAT ONLY AFFECTS THE PERSON COMMITTING THE SAID ACT, SO ABORTION DOES NOT QUALIFY! There is a victim in abortion, the unborn child. It quit being a choice debate at the “choice” to take birth control or not, when one becomes pregnant it is no longer a choice debate.

    • Sacfat

      Right – so if a mother goes skiing, crashes and has a mis-carriage we should charge her with MURDER!!!!

      • myintx

        If a woman with a newborn gets in an accident and her newborn dies she wont get charged with murder, but if she intentionally kills her newborn she will.

  • Carrie Geren Scoggins

    That second life form in her body is to be considered as well, as taking it’s life is not a victimless crime, therefore it does not qualify as a “choice” debate. A choice debate is one over victimless crimes, those acts only affecting the person doing the act, abortion affects another human lifeform, the unborn child. Your argument is not a legitimate one at best. The debate quit being a freedom of choice debate at making the “choice” to use birth control. Now there is another life inside her body, and so taking that life is not a choice issue, it is not a victimless crime.

      Life begins that moment that the sperm penetrates the ovum. If it were not life it would be dead. Dead cells so not continue to grow, At 9 weeks that baby has fingernails, fingerprints, a heartbeat, brain waves. It is alive. At 13 weeks it feels pain, and what a horrible death it must feel being ripped apart in it’s mother’s womb .Most of all that baby has a soul. Men and women are spiritual beings, God placed that soul in those living cells the moment they unite. “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you. Jeremiah 5:1

  • wooters

    Hello!!! Do those having sex not know where babies come from?

  • wooters

    Of course. You had the opportunity to “evolve” because someone made the decision to give you life. Prochoicers have already been born.

  • stimlin

    Actually the number is double that. There is 500,000 miscarriages every year, and as we all know a miscarriage is just Gods way of aborting the unborn fetus.

  • Ginger Jones

    There are currently almost 500,000 of God’s Children in foster care in this country. How many have you taken in, oh protector of all things child?

    • myintx

      So, if a woman has a baby and decides she doesn’t want it can she kill it because there already so many kids in foster care?

  • Sheila

    For pro-lifers, life begins at conception and ends at birth. Once they are born, it aint their problem. They are all for having their say for the unborn, for the born, they walk away w/o helping. If that weren’t true, if life were so precious, then they;d be against the death penalty. Because life is life.

  • Sacfat

    More then 10 Million orphans under the age of 10 around the world and the Pro-LIFE lobby couldn’t care LESS!!!!
    Bristol – how about using the power of your blog to help children who are actually ALIVE AND SUFFERING???
    Not a single post attempting to help orphans and abandoned children.
    Just criticisms and attacks on people who have a different political ideology then yourself.
    SHAME, girl…… you could do so much good with your celebrity awareness.

  • Sacfat

    PS – just curious, but with Un-Employment running at 8% (we know this because Momma Bear keeps reminding us)
    Then WHERE EXACTLY would these extra 55 MILLLINO fit into the picture?
    Un-Employment would be around 25% !!!!!!

    • myintx

      If abortion had been illegal since 1973 you wouldn’t have 55 Million extra people in America and the higher unemployment rate. Here are just a few reasons
      – Many immigrants would not have come to the US as they came for available jobs (that have to be offered to qualified US citizens first).
      – Many women have multiple abortions – some within months of each other. If a woman is pregnant with a child (the one she would have killed), she cant have that subsequent pregnancy and abortion.
      – Many women (and their partners) would know the law and work harder to avoid getting pregnant in a consensual relationship.
      – Some of those new people in this country would have opened up their own businesses and hired people thus keeping unemployment down.
      Steve Jobs was ADOPTED. He is responsible for the creation of lots of jobs. If he had been aborted how many more people would be unemployed?
