Pro-abortion position is untenable

Pro-abortion position is untenable

“Life begins at birth.”

Sounds pretty ridiculous, doesn’t it? We all recognize the absurdity of that comment. And yet, 40 years have passed since the Supreme Court infected our nation with its Roe vs. Wade decision, and the “right” to extinguish life within the womb remains the law of the land.

When does the life begin? Ask any expectant mom feeling the gentle kick of anticipation from her developing baby. Ask the ultrasound technician marveling at the strong, steady beating of the baby’s heart in utero. Ask yourself as you page through an embryology text and witness the astounding photographs documenting the miracle of human life from the very moment of conception.

There has been much in the news lately about the tragic killings in Connecticut but few are willing to nudge our slumbering collective conscience regarding the killing of our unborn brothers and sisters done under the guise of “reproductive rights.” All human beings have the God-given inalienable right to life from the moment of conception until natural death. No Supreme Court has the right to tell us otherwise.

Respect life. Protect life. Let your voice be heard. America, we are better than this!
