Jan 26, 2014 No Comments ›› John Eidsmoe

After four decades of studying, lecturing, debating and writing on this subject, I am prepared to say that Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision by which the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the duly-enacted laws of nearly all of the 50 states and mandated abortion on demand as a national policy, is wrong. It is ...
