Stand up for the unborn


I recently read an article about the U.S. birth rate that has dropped for the second year in a row and the 2009 birth rate set the lowest level in a century. The experts think it may be because of the recession or it may be because of a decline in immigration to the United States.

Have they never heard of abortion?

Abortion kills approximately 4,000 babies in the womb each day. Can’t they do the math and see how this decreases the population?

We must not sit back and let innocent babies be killed. We are Americans! Whatever happened to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all?


Since when do we have the right to play God? To choose which baby lives or dies? We do not have that right. We must not sit back and let innocent babies be killed.

Please do not be indifferent to the plight of the unborn. We have lived with the crime of abortion way too long. Stand up for life.
