Protecting the weak

On the 35th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade opinion that effectively legalized abortion as birth control – resulting in the deaths of at least 50 million unborn children to date – Richard Land, president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, has this to say:

We must be vigilant to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves and to offer the Gospel of Jesus and ministries of mercy to women in need. We pray that one day soon Roe will be overturned and that ultimately every unborn child in America will be protected legally and welcomed expectantly.

Update 3:40 pm: President George Bush speaks to March for Life participants at the White House, saying in part:

Building a culture of life requires more than law; it requires changing hearts. And as we reach out to others and find common ground, we can see the glimmerings of a new America on a far shore. This America is rooted in our belief that in a civilized society, the strong protect the weak. This America is nurtured by people like you, who speak up for the weak and the innocent. This America is the destiny of a people whose founding document speaks of the right to life that is a gift of our Creator, not a grant of the state.
