Life and Death

President Obama, faced with widespread protest against his strong support for abortion, said in his speech at Notre Dame University’s graduation exercise, “In short, we must find a way to live together as one human family.”

Abortion, however, is death, not life.

Abortion is the murder of a human being, too often just as a matter of convenience for a life style of sexual promiscuity.

Abortion kills the traditional family social unit.  It is not just coincidental that our staggeringly high rates of illegitimate births first became so at the time of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision. 

Abortion kills personal responsibility.  The availability of abortion has led far too many young men to father a large number of children with different women and then abandon mothers and children.
