“I am fearfully and wonderfully made”
Approximately 42 million abortions are performed each year worldwide (115,000 per day). 1.37 million abortions are performed each year in America (3,700 per day). Somebody thinks abortion is O.K.!
1% of all abortions occur because of rape or incest; 6% of abortions occur because of potential health problems regarding either the mother or child, and 93% of all abortions occur for social reasons (i.e. the child is unwanted or inconvenient). Somebody thinks abortion is O.K.!
Approximately 53 million babies have been aborted in the U.S. since the January 22, 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. There have been more babies killed in 38 years than soldiers killed in all the American wars in the past 235 yrs. of this nations' history. In more populated areas like Washington D.C., 1 out of 2 pregnancies ends in abortion. Somebody thinks abortion is O.K.!
Often animal rights activists are exonerated and "pro-life" advocates are considered troublemakers. If you save a whale you are honored, if you try to save an unborn life you are ridiculed. If an airplane crashes and 10 people die, it is national news, but when 1.37 million babies are killed in one year it goes unmentioned. Somebody thinks abortion is O.K.!
A Gallup Poll, conducted May 7-10, 2009 finds 51% of Americans calling themselves "pro-life" on the issue of abortion and 42% "pro-choice." This is the first time a majority of U.S. adults have identified themselves as pro-life since Gallup began asking this question in 1995.Unfortunately, our nation is following the lead of the 42%! A part of that 42% is in the White House! Somebody thinks abortion is O.K.!
"It is uncertain when human life begins; that's a religious question than cannot be answered by science.”
"The fetus is just a part of the pregnant women's body, like her tonsils or appendix.”
"The unborn is an embryo or a fetus - just a simple blob of tissue, a product of conception - not a baby. Abortion is terminating a pregnancy, not killing a child."
"The fetus may be alive, but so are eggs and sperm. The fetus is a potential human being, not an actual one; it's like a blueprint not a house, an acorn not an oak tree.”
"The unborn isn't a person, with meaningful life. It's only inches in size, and can't even think; it's less advanced than an animal.”
"A fetus isn't a person until quickening or viability.“
"Obviously life begins at birth. That's why we celebrate birthdays, not conception days, and why we don't have funerals following miscarriages.”
"No one can really know that human life begins before birth."
