Robert George reflects on Roe v. Wade
Catholic World News - January 22, 2013
In an interview with Catholic World Report, Robert George, professor of jurisprudence at Princeton University, reflects on Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that struck down state laws protecting the lives of unborn children.
“People, including abortion’s supporters, have been forced to confront the truth about the humanity of the child in the womb,” he said. “It is simply no longer possible to pretend not to know ‘when life begins’ or whether abortion takes the life of a human being. The facts of human embryogenesis and early intrauterine development are not only clear, but reasonably well known. And sonography has given all of us a window into the beautiful life of the child in the womb. That, I believe, is why a majority of Americans now identify themselves as pro-life--for the first time since Roe v. Wade was handed down.”
