Young Americans – pro-life; judges – not so much

I am the pro-life generationJudges who are overturning pro-life laws are doing so in a clash with the future of America.

Federal Judge Myron Thompson, who often sides with the Planned Parenthood philosophy, has overturned two laws passed by the Alabama legislature, ruling them unconstitutional. One prohibited dismemberment abortions, which has been upheld by other courts. The second law barred abortion clinics from locating within 2,000 feet of K-8 schools – similar to routinely held laws forcing adult entertainment and liquor stores away from children.

While Deborah Love of Eagle Forum of Alabama says the problem goes beyond liberal judges, she says it also reveals an ongoing consequence of the landmark Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision of 1973.

"In addition to its impact on human rights for all Americans," she explains, "what Roe v. Wade did was impact states' rights around the country and our American system of federalism."

Love also argues that liberal judges aren't looking to the future and the changing landscape of views held by young people. She points out that as perceptions of Americans 30 years of age or younger rapidly shift, the belief that abortion is a violent human rights offense is growing more common.

The pro-life advocate says America is understanding that life is precious and should not be terminated in the womb.

In light of the court ruling, Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall vows to appeal.
