- We have lost over 60 million American children to abortion since it was legalized in 1973. There is no way to calculate the repercussions! Many of those who were aborted would have given life to their own children.
- Over 2 million couples are waiting to adopt a child including those of any race or those born with special needs. . . but we lose 1 million children a year to abortion.
- Some websites will say an embryo “becomes” a fetus at the 9th week of pregnancy...if there really is a differentiation between an “embryo” and a “fetus” (and I would argue there is not), why do our laws permit abortions throughout pregnancy? You know the answer: Abortion is a big business; well-funded lobbyists are working hard to keep abortion legal; some women want the “convenience” of abortion when contraceptives fail.
- A society is judged by how it treats the weak and defenseless. At 10 weeks, the tiny developing human person in the womb feels pain.
