The following quote may be attributed to Live Action Founder and President, Lila Rose regarding the announcement of Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement from the U.S. Supreme Court:
“If the next justice supports the basic human right to life for all people, we could see the horrific, immoral, and unjust 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade overturned. In Roe, seven men fabricated a false “right” for a woman to kill the child in her womb. There is no “right” to kill a human child. Roe resulted in 45 years of bloodshed, confusion, and pain, with millions of men, women, and families profoundly wounded and over 60 million children killed in the womb.
“The right to life is the foundation for all other human rights – without life, no other rights can be enjoyed. It is the job of government to secure the basic human rights of its people, especially for those that are the most vulnerable. Science is crystal clear that an individual, unique human life begins at the moment of fertilization, and morality and justice compel us to protect every human life from his or her first moment of existence.
“Justice Kennedy’s opinions in subsequent abortion cases showed that he supported Roe while neglecting to affirm the most basic human right of life. An opportunity to appoint a new justice to the court may mean restored constitutional protections for all human beings, born and unborn.”
