A few weeks ago we observed Right To Life Sunday, addressing the issue of abortion, which is an industry supported by our taxpayer dollars.

Because our legislators have involved us in funding this activity, we need to know exactly what we are doing.

Science tells us that when a human sperm fertilizes a human egg, the result is another human being, programmed with DNA from both parents, unique to that new person. What else could it be? Even Dr. Seuss says a person's a person, no matter how small.

The rallying cry of pro-choice people is that a woman has a right to do what she pleases with her own body. Except the child she carries within her womb is not her own body. It is a separate person living and growing within her, to be entrusted and protected by her. After she gives birth, none of her body parts are missing.

According to our legal system, if someone kills a pregnant woman and the baby she is carrying dies too, the perpetrator is charged with two murders.

Since the date of the ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States, called Roe versus Wade, until the recent day designated Right To Life Sunday, there have been 61,628,524 legal abortions — more people killed than in all the wars fought in our country, both foreign and domestic.

Another argument presented by abortionists is a person has a right to privacy. Murder, no matter where it is committed, is still punishable by prison or death.

What should we do about this ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States? Does our Constitution really say we have this “right”? And if it does, where does it say that? Show me.
