On the 49th Anniversary of the Legalization of Abortion, January 22, 1973:

Former President Lyndon B. Johnson died of a heart attack on January 22, 1973 – the same day as the infamous Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion violence against preborn children. Here’s the historic broadcast from NBC News that day. Do you think the media has become more biased since 1973? WATCH

Prayer for the Legal Protection of the Unborn
Lord, awaken us to a commitment to justice,
to the sanctity of marriage and the family,
to the dignity of each individual human life,
and to the truth that human rights begin
when human lives begin and not one moment later.
Lord, we rejoice today that we are citizens of your kingdom;
May that make us all the more committed to being
faithful citizens here on earth.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
From “Election Prayer for Life” Priests for Life
