Roe v. Wade
Every January, on the anniversary of the Supreme Court's 1973 decision to legalize abortion, WORLD reviews pro-life progress and regress over the previous year.
Pregnancy resource center directors, volunteers, or mothers:
Send us your baby photos
WORLD’s annual Roe v. Wade issue often includes photos of babies. In our 2014 issue, the photo on our cover shows one of the millions of babies saved through God’s grace and the work of pregnancy resource centers, and every year that number increases. We hope to make publishing such photos an annual tradition.
How to participate in 2015: Any pregnancy resource center client's baby born in 2015 is eligible. We’ll need a signed release (download PDF) from the baby’s parent or guardian. Moms of babies whose photos are selected for inclusion in WORLD, and the centers that have helped, will receive copies of the magazine that includes the babies’ photos. Please email photos and release forms to Rob Patete (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Dec. 31.
Red zone defense
With our most-observed secular holiday, Super Bowl day, coming this year on Feb. 6, we're hearing a lot about what happens in "the red zone," the part of the football field that extends from the 20-yard line to the end zone. Meanwhile, abortion proponents are defending their own bloody red zone against a reinvigorated pro-life movement.
Abortion: A right that's wrong
Even as the abortion culture sinks itself deeper into the fabric of American life, pro-lifers are preparing to mourn the 26th anniversary of the Supreme Court's Roe vs. Wade decision, several factors continue to chip away at its acceptability. Political challenges, cultural argument, and compassionate alternatives are slowly but surely helping to form the consensus that abortion is wrong. A look back at abortion in America since the last dark Roe anniversary.
Life worth living
The January 22, 1973, Roe vs. Wade ruling has been a death sentence for 30 million-plus preborn infants in the United States. For 24 years babies have died for any reason and no reason. But in the 1990s, with the development of new genetic tests that can more safely and less expensively diagnose genetic disorders in utero, many young humans are at risk for one very specific reason: They have Down Syndrome.
