Make a difference

Forty-one years ago, on Jan. 22, 1973, seven members of the U.S. Supreme Court decided to throw out the abortion laws of every state of the union. Seven men in dark robes decided that the right to life was no longer inalienable, but dependent solely on a woman’s choice, a mother’s decision. A generation of Americans have had approximately onefourth of their brothers and sisters destroyed before birth because of two U.S. Supreme Court decisions, Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton. More than 56 million children have faced the cruel tools of an abortionist and every day women who need real help go through the doors of a clinic and come out, never to be the same again.

Advances in technology, including new three-dimensional ultrasounds, have shown us who we are losing at a rate of approximately 3,300 a day. The entity in a mother’s womb is more than a mere “clump of cells.” This living, developing organism is in fact a human being who deserves the same basic rights and respect as the rest of us.

Life is something that is too precious for which not to fight. That is why I’ll be working to protect the unborn and help women in unplanned pregnancies. You can help also by joining your local Right to Life group for the Mini-March for Life and Memorial Service on Sunday, Jan. 19. The Mini-March will begin at 1:30 p.m. Park at the St. Joseph Catholic Church in Sandusky, go inside to get a sign and we will walk to the county courthouse and back. Then we will hold a memorial service at 2:30 p.m. to pray for those lost to abortion and pray for an end to the horrible practice of abortion. You can make a difference.
