January 22nd marks the 43rd anniversary of the tragic Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade. In affirming the intrinsic dignity of all human life, the American Solidarity Party observes January as Right to Life Month.
We mourn for the children lost to abortion. We stand with the mothers harmed, physically and psychologically, by abortion.
Although America is deeply divided on the question of abortion, a wide range of Americans – from religious sisters to secularists – recognize that life begins at conception, and if we are to be a decent and humane society, we must protect the weakest and most vulnerable among us.
While working and praying to overturn Roe v. Wade, ASP is also committed to addressing the wider cultural forces which drive some women to choose abortion. Thus, we support universal healthcare, expanded maternity leave, and other supports for families, including single parents. Recognizing that life must be protected at all stages, ASP embraces a consistent life ethic which also includes caring for the poor and refugees, the elderly, and the disabled.
We encourage ASP members and all people of good will to support an ethic of life, human dignity, and an end to abortion. Whether or not you attend the March for Life on January 27th, please prayerfully consider how you can offer your support of time, treasure, and talent to speak out for the voiceless and aid the vulnerable.
