During his confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, the new U.S. Attorney-General, William P. Barr, said that Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion on demand, was “wrongly decided” and should be rescinded.  The Roe v. Wade judgment opened the way to the mass killing of unborn children.

Mr. Barr, 41, who succeeds Dick Thornburgh as the nations’ top law enforcer, asserted that his views were consistent with the position taken by the Justice Department since 1983.

Restraint on abortion is a legitimate political goal, the Attorney-General stated, but until Roe v. Wade is overruled, society’s role in this is foreclosed.
