Ninth-grade winner, archdiocese’s pro-life essay contest - 2018

The Land of the Free

Today in America, we claim to be a free land. Yet, in 1973, our court handed down a decision that has deprived over 58 million innocent people of their most basic and fundamental freedom – the right to life. Roe v. Wade was meant to protect liberty, but it has only wreaked incredible havoc on our American freedom.

Eleventh-grade winner, archdiocese’s pro-life essay contest - 2018

When Roe v Wade was passed in 1973, many people presumably thought they were more free because of it. However, this is simply not the case. Abortion makes our country less free because it denies babies their right to life, allows doctors and mothers to commit harmful actions without legal consequences, and it goes against the true meaning of freedom.
