PLANO, Texas — Dr. Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, issues the following statement on the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Jan. 22:

“It has been said that the ultimate measure of a society is how it treats its weakest members. If America were judged today by this measure, we would get a resounding failing grade. For 46 years we have allowed abortion to depreciate the value of human life in our nation to the point where terminating a pregnancy — and consequently a human being — takes no longer than a trip to the dentist. The fact that over 61 million babies have been aborted since Roe v. Wade should make us realize we have lost our moral compass. I pray America once again remembers the true value of human life: inherently worthy and infinitely precious in the eyes of the Creator.”
