The Precious Gift of Life
A high school student named MariaFernanda Gomez approached me via e-mail asking for permission to use one of my graphics that I had posted in honor of Ask Them What They Mean by “Choice” Day.
I told her that I stole the graphics myself, and as far as I knew they were free and clear to use. The Facebook group I found them in encourages reposting.
She never ended up using the graphics, however she did write an amazing article that I think is worth calling attention to. It’s awesome to see that there is at least one young high school student with an appreciation for the great gift that life is, and abhors the cavalier attitude that abortion advocates display toward life.
In the United States, more than 40 million unborn babies have been killed in the 29 years since abortion was legalized, and more than 1.3 million are killed each year, according to statistics from several recognized national institutes [the Alan Guttmacher Institute, Centers for Disease Control, National Right to Life Committeee, and Central Illinois Right to Life].
It would take more than 13 thousand September 9, 2011 terrorist attacks to kill as many people as abortion has killed since Roe vs. Wade. It is a tragedy that must end if we seek to foster a culture for our children that will value life, as it is – a gift from God.
