Item description for The Ashes That Still Remain by Thomas Koys & Frank Pavone...
Overview A compelling analysis of President Lincoln's dealing with the Dred Scott decision of the Supreme Court and the Roe V. Wade decision of our Supreme Court of today. Two U.S. legal systems; one that protected human slavery and another that protects the killing of the unborn. A new look at how history repeats itself.
Publishers Description Fr. Koys uses his Civil War knowledge and his love of the Catholic Faith to draw lessons from both to give a deeper understanding of the pro-life movement. He analyzes the Supreme Court rulings of Dred Scott and Roe v. Wade and views both as contrary to the ideals written in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. With an unerring eye on American history, Fr. Koys uncovers the tangled web of evil motives and proud attitudes that bind together the bygone proponents of slavery and the contemporary components of abortion. This book can be of great value to people that desire to gain insight into the mindset of a Supreme Court that could pass a law allowing the unborn child to be aborted.

The Civil War, the Dred Scott decision and Roe v. Wade Oct 25, 2008
There are many parallels between the abolitionist movement and the pro-life movement. This book by Reverend Thomas Koys explores the legacy of the Civil War and the slavery issue as a political matter and a moral matter. He demonstrates a convincing similarity between the Dred Scott decision and the Roe v. Wade decision. The reasoning of Justice Taney and Justice Blackmun is judicial history repeating itself, as Reverend Koys argues very convincingly.
If you are interested in U.S. history, the abolitionist movement, the civil rights movement or the pro-life movement, this book is a "must read". The ups and downs in the fight against slavery as an institutionalized evil will be inspirational for all those fighting the institutionalized evils our day. He is a very good, clear, learned writer; he is not dry or defensive in his style or tone of voice. Quite the contrary. I've read it twice and bought copies for friends.
