Life, Liberty and MLK Jr.
There were a few noteworthy occasions from this past legislative week that should be highlighted in this week’s column. The first one, of course, was the observance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday and his work as a leader in civil rights for all Americans. The Monday holiday resulted in a shortened legislative week. More on Dr. King’s legacy in a moment.
A second noteworthy occasion from this past week – and in my opinion, a black mark in the history of our country – was the 40th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe vs. Wade decision. What a sad irony it is, that in the same week we celebrate one man’s triumph over injustice, we also commemorate a court decision that has resulted in the unjust death of 55 million Americans.
Visiting the Capitol this week was a lady by the name of Juda Myers with a very important story to tell. You see, Ms. Myers was conceived by gang rape. And while this may be a very uncomfortable story to hear, it is one with lessons that should be heeded. I know that there are many reading this article who disagree with my position on rights for the unborn, but I would still implore you to visit Ms. Myer’s website (www.choices4life.org ) and listen to her testimony.
