  • Abortion debate

    Posted by JOHN DONNELLY on 11/25/2015

    Roe v. Wade legalized abortion in 1973.  Since that time there have been many court cases and laws enacted placing more restrictions on a woman who desires to have an abortion either to the delight of some or the frustration of others.  People debate when life conception, at birth, when there is detectable heartbeat????  Do you feel that abortion will remain legal in our country or will it be abolished in the next 25 years?
