To the editor:
On Jan. 25, I watched between 500,000 and 650,000 (mostly young) people (estimates cited by many witnesses - no official estimate) silently March for Life in the nation's capitol to protest legal abortion (killing) of more than 55 million babies since the flawed Supreme Court decision 40 years ago. Ironically, only one television network covered the largest civil rights issue in America today - EWTN, a Catholic network! The rest of the mainstream networks were deliberately silent - no coverage of an event protesting an abominable holocaust, as they know how shameful we have been to turn our backs on the innocents.
How corrupt and far from God we have become! We are sickened when an unborn baby dies when his mother is murdered or even furious when someone abuses an animal. But make killing your unborn child legal, and suddenly it's open season on babies in the womb. Make something legal, and our consciences disappear! How sad - most animals would protect their babies with their lives. Years ago a mother and/or her doctor would have made every effort to at least save the unborn baby.
Do women really not know what it means to be pregnant? Pregnant = having a child or other offspring developing in the body, with child or young, as a woman or female mammal. Clearly the woman finds out with a simple test that she is now pregnant, i.e., WITH CHILD. Her choice is to keep or to kill her child developing in her body. She will have to LIVE with her decision the rest of her life. It is not her body, it is a NEW LIFE at the moment of fertilization; it is not her right to kill her developing baby in her womb - she is made to have children, not to kill them.
Yes, it is her choice, but really the only right choice is to have her baby. Unfortunately, those who do abortions, like Planned Parenthood, do not provide the woman help with this right choice - life. For those of us involved in the pro-life movement, we must get this information to the pregnant women before they make the mistake of a life(time). Stay tuned for my next letter, which will provide this life-saving info.
Save our children,
