Abortion is the practice of killing the weakest and most defenseless of the race. Yet, tragically, it has been ingrained in American culture. Since the Supreme Court handed down the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, some 40 million abortions have been committed in this nation. i This is almost a third of the number of live babies born during the same time. ii If you go to a high school graduation ceremony this year, consider that one third of the graduating class is missing. They were deprived of the right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness written about by our founding Fathers in the Declaration of Independence. We are shocked when we read about the human sacrifices of ancient cultures. Yet, the unborn children are routinely sacrificed on the twin altars of feminist ideology and convenience. We are shocked by the horrors of the German holocaust where six million Jews lost their lives. Yet in the American holocaust, over six times that number of innocent babies have been killed. Why has this happened in the world's “enlightened” time? What can we do to stop this evil?
Multitudes of people in the society have come to believe that they benefit from abortion. They have been convinced by endless propaganda that the practice of unrestricted abortion is good and that it must be protected at all costs. This extreme view comes from the radical feminists who argue foolishly that women should be free to choose to kill their unborn babies. They fail to see that if a choice needs to be made, it should be made before the conception of a child. After conception, it is too late. A child who is an individual has been created. One of the most important principles of traditional Western civilization is that one individual should not kill another for convenience. iii The feminists have cast this principle aside by allowing women to kill their unborn babies. There is no real difference between killing a child before or after it is born.
