The Truth About Abortion

Chuck Baldwin writes:

"Today marks the 37th anniversary of the infamous US Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision, which, in effect, legalized abortion-on-demand nationwide. The aftermath of this tragic ruling is the deaths of over 40 million (a very conservative number) innocent unborn babies. It is no hyperbole to say abortion is America's holocaust. Think of it, every American citizen today, 37 years old or younger, has never known a country that respected and protected innocent human life in the womb. Put it another way: when Hitler's Third Reich was at its zenith, the abortion rate was 40%. In 2003 (the last year that I checked), the abortion rate of the county in which I live was 39%. And I live in the heart of the so-called "Bible Belt." In fact, statistically speaking, the most dangerous place to be in America is not in an automobile without wearing a seat belt, or in a commercial airliner with a potential terrorist on board. Statistically speaking, the most dangerous place to be is in the womb of one's mother."

I don't care for the part at the end about how we could all either be pro-choice or Ron Paul supporters, but the first part is pretty good. Abortion is surely our greatest national sin.

Kevin DeYoung has a nice post up today listing all the recent victories for life, state by state.

Unfortunately, until our greatest national sin becomes our greatest national issue, there will be no progress.

Good Article. I think
what he is saying about being Pro Choice or Ron Paul supporters is concerning Paul's stance on abortion and supporting a bill like the Santity of Life act which defines life at conception.
Stephens is right our nation does not even see this as much of an issue. In no small way because Politicans have pretty much ignored it. Yeah they campaing anti abortion, but once elected do little about it on the whole. That's our fault for continuing to re-elect people who don't follow through, or even attempt to! :)
