We can sympathize with the unborn child
California Catholic Daily ^ | June 26, 2007

Steve Cook of San Jose, like most California pro-life advocates, is not surprised when he and his anti-abortion posters attract verbal abuse. After all, "pro-choicers" on the Left Coast have a reputation for intolerance. But after over 25 years of marching, picketing, and speaking out for the unborn, what really hurts, he says, is people screaming, "Traitor!" "Shame!"

This is because Steve represents a group that the Left never expected to find on the anti-abortion side: the Pro-Life Alliance of Gays and Lesbians.

I was amazed at people who said that infants are ‘not necessarily' human beings.

I'm amazed at that, too.

It’s wordplay again. They’re not animal beings, or insects, or plants. It doesn’t really matter what they call it (him/her) it doesn’t change the fact that it’s life. This is whats finally sinking in and the pro-choicers are just running scared because they can’t think of another name to call preborn human beings that will make them less human.
The gays/lesbians have a different agenda apparantley, to preserve their lifestyle. I guess they think there is acceptance in numbers. I have to tolerate it but I will never accept it.

2 years ago I found the information (USAToday) and was stunned.

roughly 1m abortions each year...
roughly 4m live births per year...

which brought me to an obvious stat that I had never considered:

20% of all US pregnancies are aborted ... 1 in 5

it is more dangerous to be a baby in an American womb then letting a toddler wander the streets of Iraq. Or letting kids ride bikes without helmets. Or riding in a car without seatbelts. Or...
