Abortion: Birth Control or Legal Murder?
Approximately 1.6 million murders are committed legally each year. With the

their offices waiting for their next patient--the accomplice to the murder. This
is the murder of an innocent child by a procedure known as abortion. Abortion
stops the beating of an innocent child's heart. People must no longer ignore the
scientific evidence that life begins at the moment of conception. People can no

therefore it is wrong to murder the innocent child in the womb. At a US Senate
Judiciary Subcommittee meeting, most scientists said that life begins at
conception or implantation of the embryo. No scientist at the meeting claimed
that life begins at birth (Factbot). Professor Hymie Gordon of the May...
