As for us, this is the definitive issue in every election. We will not vote for anyone who would sanction this national disgrace.

One of the most controversial subjects has been the effect of abortion laws on maternal health, particularly where abortion is prohibited in order to safeguard women’s health, motherhood and the unborn human life.

And though none of these deaths is reported on the evening news (though the same unborn child killed by a bullet would be), each aborted child is just as real and just as valuable as older children. If these unborn really are babies, then America has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the world."
