March for life.

I was able to get outside for a few minutes to grab lunch and head down to the Mall to watch the March. It looked like there were more walkers and fewer protesters than in previous years. At the same time, new data shows there are more abortions and fewer live births than in previous years. I guess there’s no need to protest when you’re strategy is working.

One very pregnant woman carried this sign. For those who don’t remember, Article 1, Section 2 of our Constitution includes the “Three-Fifths Clause” under which black slaves were counted as 3/5 of a person for purposes of apportioning representatives and taxes. Some argue that the Three-Fifths Clause was a necessary compromise. It also proved to be a convenient distraction from the larger question of personhood that has yet to be resolved. The Compromise was eventually amended by the blood of 600,000 Americans 14th Amendment, which itself was amended by the blood of 50 million Americans Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade.

Earlier this month I read that in New York City sixty percent {three-fifths} of all black babies were aborted in 2009 because the law does not consider them persons at all.

Maybe it’s time for a new strategy.
