The following comes from a Nov. 26 story on Live Action News.
Abortionist Curtis Boyd, who has been committing abortions since before they were legalized in 1973, was featured Friday by UK-based publication The Guardian in a piece on American abortionists.
The tone of the piece is one of shock and dismay that America has grown more pro-life, rather than more accepting of the tenets of Roe v. Wade, since 1973. To drive this point home, the piece includes this startling infographic from the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute displaying the radical pro-life shift in opinion as evidenced by legislative restrictions on abortion.
For The Guardian and for abortionists like Boyd America’s lack of acceptance for abortion on-demand is inconceivable. When Boyd began his first legal abortion business after Roe v. Wade, he says he never imagined that, over 40 years later, abortion would remain a medical industry separated from the rest of medicine – much less one that is opposed by most Americans:
We thought [by now] it would be available in every family practice, that there would be no resistance. Every medical school would be teaching it… We wake up and think, “My God what has happened?”…

Roe v Wade in 1973 did not “legalize” abortion. Abortion was legal in a number of states before Roe. Generally speaking, what Roe v Wade did was to invalidate legal restrictions on abortion on supposed federal constitutional grounds.
so what is your point, Lee Aruthur? Abortion is now legal in all states and federal jurisdictions because of the decision in Roe V Wade. To say Roe “legalized” abortion is a shorthand, but it is not inaccurate. Or, do you dispute that the Supreme Court, per Marbury v. Madison, decides what the law IS. Do you dispute Marbury? This case was decided in 1803, by a court that included the very founders of our Republic, and others that were appointed directly by them. Do you doubt that Marbury v Madison is binding law upon the US?
My point is exactly what I said. And it is exactly legally correct. The statement that Roe “legalized” abortion may be shorthand, as you say, but like shorthand statements about the law often are, it is legally inaccurate. You are wrong about that. The article did not say in what jurisdiction this individual performed abortions, but depending on which jurisdiction it was, he may not have been performing them illegally. That’s one reason for my statement. Another is, many people are under the false legal impression that overturning Roe will end abortion, and that is inaccurate for the reason I stated. The states would remain free to permit abortion on their own, just like they were before Roe. Of course Marbury is the law. In Roe, the Court said that abortion may not be restricted (to the extent the opinion said that). That is binding. Abortion may not be restricted in a way prohibited by Roe, so long as Roe is the law. Nothing I said cut against that. Really – what is YOUR point? My point should not take well developed legal reasoning skills to understand. For myself, I’ve been a lawyer for over 30 years. I’m trying to help people out here.
Roe v Wade (US Supreme Court decision) overturned several States laws that prohibited abortion – the murder of innocent human beings for the convenience of others.
Roe v Wade violated/violates the civil rights (right to live) of approx. 54 MILLION innocent American citizens since 1973.
Science has already proven that the Supreme Court was wrong – and unborn babies are not a blob of tissue, but are human beings, and can feel pain prior to 10 weeks.

If the pro-life movement keeps on growing it is because of the devoted prayers and works of many holy Catholic people. They pray the rosary and bible. I once heard that when we pray the rosary, we give our Lady a bouquet of roses. Our Lady is with us, she is present, consoling us as we beg God for His mercy to spare innocent souls, who may have the fate of being aborted.
If this rotten world still goes on, its because of God’s mercy and the prayers of many who are most pleasing to God.
Hope all America will become pro-life, pro-Traditional Marriage and Family, and pro-Chastity if not married! A child at conception, is a big responsibility! NEVER a selfish, sinful “choice,” for the child’s mother, to decide whether to KILL her beautiful baby, created by the Divine Hands of Almighty God! Sex is a big marital responsibility, and it belongs only between one man, and one woman, validly married! No birth control– SELF-CONTROL!! The married couple begins their conjugal life, on their Honeymoon! Their sacred Marriage Vows, before God– are permanent, and forever! All traditional Christian Wedding Vows (all denominations) require that the Bride and Groom shall accept all children, that God may send to them! Sex means: PARENTHOOD!! Big responsibility, and family and children are truly the greatest joys of life!! Make a happy home and a happy family, and all worship God daily, together!
Unfortunately, Abp Blasé Cupich, newly appointed to the Chicago Diocese via the recommendation of Cardinal Donald Wuerl – does not allow his Priests to pray the Rosary outside of abortion clinics to save lives.
(Cupich has made ILLEGAL immigration his priority.)
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the Marches for Life –
March for Life – Washington DC – Jan. 22, 2015
Walk for Life – San Francisco – Jan. 24, 2015
If you are unable to attend, EWTN covers these events.
The biased secular media does not give these marches the coverage they deserve.
Let us call abortion what it is – the murder of innocent human beings for the convenience of others.
These innocents feel pain with the burning of chemicals or dismemberment.
Science has proven this.
Mothers with MURDER in their hearts usually committed sexual mortal sins in the first place.
ABSTINENCE / CONTINENCE. We are not animals and can control our carnal desires.
