What political issue could possibly outweigh this human devastation of 40 million deaths through abortion? The answer, of course, is that there is none.
It is time to put away the arguments of political spin masters that only serve to justify abortion killing. We have heard a great deal this year about the need for change. But at the same time we are told that one thing cannot change namely, the abortion regime of Roe vs. Wade.
It is time that we demand real change, and real change means the end of Roe vs. Wade.

You may want to send this testimony out to the Pro-Life ping list. I teach in the MLT Department of our local community college and last week was the first week for the sophomore students in their clinical rotations. They spend Mondays on campus and today they were full of stories about the past week.
One of the students who is the mother of a toddler said that the most amazing thing that she saw was a 17 week-old fetus. The baby tragically died when the placenta ruptured. The student could not get over how well-developed the baby was - down to the tiny fingernails. She said that you could even tell that the baby was a boy. I could not resist saying that many would say that a fetus at this stage is an unviable tissue mass. At 17 weeks, it may be indeed be unviable, but it is certainly not a just a mass of tissue. We got into a conversation about how women who have abortions are not told the truth that they are killing a baby and not just eliminating a tissue mass and how they are often overcome with guilt when they find out what they have done. Not that she would have considered an abortion in the future, but she quickly said that she could NEVER have an abortion after that experience.
