40 Years of the Culture of Death: A Pastoral Letter on the Occasion of the Anniversary of ‘Roe v. Wade’
By Archbishop Samuel Aquila
This pastoral letter was written for the anniversary of Roe v. Wade in January.

Cardinal Sean O’Malley is certainly right to call for fasting and prayer . . . as we [recently observed] the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.
On January 16, in preparation for the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, the Pew Research Foundation issued the results of a 1,502 person survey dealing with abortion and the attitudes of those surveyed.
The definitions of the terms used in a discussion can and do change the outcome. The political maxim, “He who frames the issue wins the debate” applies in many situations including how the public views what abortion is and why it is either legitimate or illicit.
The news out of Nebraska this week is both sobering and shocking. Pro-life Americans hear that the abortion industry is dwindling, but Dr. Leroy Carhart, infamous abortionist in the U.S. Supreme Court partial-birth abortion case Gonzales vs. Carhart, would take issue with that apparent false claim.
