Letter: Roe v. Wade’s fall prompts joy along with reflection


The end of World War II was a bittersweet moment for many Americans. The joy over the cessation of hostilities was mixed with the sorrow for those who had fallen. So it is for me as I look back on the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision of 1973 and its overturn on Friday.

With joy I realize that many American babies will be allowed to live now; but it is with sorrow that I contemplate the tens of millions of innocent victims who had to suffer and die because of the egregious and clearly wrongful decision that brought about their deaths.

Now, 49 years on, respect for life has been shamefully degraded, as reflected in the mass killings which are now part of our landscape. Can Americans ever retrieve those values again? I wonder.
