An Encouraging Sign

By Matthew Milhon

TIME magazine has taken up abortion as the subject matter of its first cover story for the New Year, and the headline might surprise you. "40 Years Ago, Abortion-Rights Activists Won An Epic Victory With Roe V. Wade: They've Been Losing Ever Since."

Even with the 40th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade approaching the Pro-Life movement has not slowed down and has gained enough ground for TIME, and their 20 million American subscribers, to take notice. The author describes how, despite the legality of abortion, it is becoming increasingly difficult to access. As a result of legislation that requires abortionists and their clinics to carry licenses and have admitting privileges at local hospitals, clinics in Michigan, Alabama and a number of other states are opting to close their doors rather than comply with state law; Alabama is a particularly encouraging win as they have only one clinic to begin with. These legislative victories, coupled with a feminism that is beginning to break away from the pro-abortion lock-step mindset, have lead TIME to call out the pro-choice movement as lame horse. I don't know about you but I am particularly encouraged to see these signs of victory in a publication like TIME, it proves to the rest of the world that the Pro-Life movement is more than a bunch of old misogynists. It proves that Love will win.
