Roe vs. Wade

I really appreciated this article by Kevin DeYoung on the eve of the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade. Especially helpful was his overview of the history of abortion and killing of infants from the ancient world, and how the spread of the gospel stopped its general acceptance about 1500+ years ago.

Here is his first paragraph:
Tomorrow is the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court ruling that made up out of judicial thin air a constitutional right to abortion on demand. Some view the ruling as a giant step forward, but it was really a quantum leap back–back about two millennia.
Read the rest here.
