After Roe, there’s no time to party
Making Sense by Michael Reagan
It’s been a fabulous week for conservatives, Republicans and millions of ordinary Americans.
I cheered all of the Supreme Court’s recent blockbusters – for moral, political and personal reasons.
I’m 100 percent pro-life. I believe adults should be free to own and carry guns. I believe there should be more prayer in schools, not less.
And I don’t want unelected federal bureaucrats writing laws about the environment or anything else that Congress should be writing.
But the Court’s 5-4 decision last week to overrule Roe v. Wade and send the “regulating” of abortion back to the states, where it always belonged, was doubly pleasing to me.
This week when I spoke about abortion and adoption to a group of teenagers at a Young Americans Foundation event, I repeated something I’ve written and spoken about many times before.
First, I asked the young conservatives to imagine what the world would be like if the person sitting next to them had never been born.
Then I told them the story of Sarah Jean Maysfield, whose family could not afford to have a child and literally left her on the doorstep of a neighbor.
I told them how that neighbor took her in, legally adopted her and changed her name to Sarah Jean Faulks.
