Roe vs. Wade didn't end abortion argument

Micaiah Bilger, education director of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation, discusses why the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Roe vs. Wade didn't end the argument over abortion.

Abortion advocates claim that Roe is settled case law, but after more than four decades, abortion remains one of the most contentious issues in our society.

Why? If abortion is simply a medical procedure to remove a blob of tissue, it should not be controversial. If abortion is just a medical procedure, why do many people characterize it as a difficult decision, a necessary evil?

Most Americans are troubled by abortion because they recognize that abortion is something much more than a medical procedure. Abortion destroys a human life.
