Notable Quotable: “Abortion Will Remain the Law of the Land and Human Dignity Will Remain In Balance Until There Is An Affirmation of the Fact That Every Single Human Being Is Made In God’s Image” – Al Mohler


“Those of us who believe that every single unborn child has a right to be born cannot resign from the effort to protect those lives.

“The greatest advances made by the pro-life movement have been made among the young, the generation that has known the death toll from Roe v. Wade all their lives. More evidence that the abortion issue will not simply go away.

“Nevertheless, Roe v. Wade remains the law of the land and abortion on demand remains a constant. Since Roe more than 55 million unborn Americans have been aborted, and the nation is more concerned about economics than the sanctity of human life. We have much ground to recover, but the only foundation for a recovery of human dignity is an affirmation of the fact that every single human being is made in God’s image and is of sacred worth from the moment of fertilization until natural death.

“Until that truth is affirmed, we will see abortion remain the law of the land and human dignity will hang in the balance.”

(Albert Mohler, “Forty Years After Roe, Human Dignity Hangs in the Balance”,
