WASHINGTON, DC, January 26, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Of all the speeches delivered just before the 31st annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. last week, the one delivered with the most vigor and which roused the most passion was that of Rabbi Yehuda Levin.
Pulling no punches, Rabbi Levin began, “Three decades ago, in 1973, a decadent Supreme Court, in this city of Washington, D.C., issued a shameful decree-the ROE vs. WADE ruling that empowered the abortion establishment to murder and mutilate tens of millions of G-D’s children in cold blood.”
He spoke of America’s promise of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, adding, “It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this guarantee, as far as her unborn children are concerned.”
Calling for immediate action from political leaders he said, “This is no time to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to open the doors of life to all of G-D’s children. It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment and to underestimate the consequences of the continued murder of millions of unborn children.”
After a few lines mirroring the famous “I have a dream” speech of Martin Luther King, Rabbi Levin concluded, “Let us speed up the day when all of G-D’s children: White, Black, Brown, Gentile, Catholic, Protestant, and Jew alike will be able to sing the words of that old Negro spiritual: ‘Born at last! Born at last!—Thank G-D Almighty, we are born at last!’”
