Civil Rights at 50

Fifty years ago today, the Civil Rights Act was signed into law. Since then, a lot of progress has been made and, although there is still a long way to go, it is right that we pause to celebrate this achievement.

New York Times 1974 Johnson Signs Civil Rights Act

As we do so, however, let’s not forget that one group of American lost all of their civil rights on January 22, 1973. That’s the day America’s Supreme Court decided that the unborn have no civil rights – not even the basic right to live.

What we need to recognize is that the spirit of the civil rights will never be fulfilled as long as we continue down that path.

Until the time comes that civil rights exist in the womb, they will never fully exist outside of it.
