Today is the tragic anniversary of the legalization of murder of unborn babies. Since Roe v Wade was decided by the Supreme Court in 1973, 55 million children have been slaughtered in the womb.
The right to life is the civil rights issue of our time. How many more lives will be destroyed before we finally right this terrible wrong?
O GOD, merciful and compassionate, who art ever ready to hear the prayers of those who put their trust in thee; Graciously hearken to us who call upon thee, and grant us thy help to stop the slaughter of unborn babies created in thy image; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (adapted from the 1928 Book of Common Prayer)

So we need to tell them.
The following links powerfully tell people about abortion:
These incredible videos tell by showing:
And here are some of my attempts to tell:

- Slavery and Abortion: Moral Relatives
- Now Choose Life, So You and Your Children May Live
Are you a proponent for life? Will you cry out for an end of the legalized killing of the most vulnerable among us?
