Now, stop war against the unborn

Forget that the Supreme Court's decisions of June 26 pave the way for the law of the land eventually, through legal maneuverings in 37 states, to be that any two persons, regardless of each one's gender, may marry. This presents an opportune time to address a truly legitimate and the greatest legally sanctioned denial of rights in this country's history. The embarrassing and tragic fact is that for more than 40 years, defenseless and innocent unborn human beings up to full-term have been denied with impunity the right to be born and live. Many have been killed through a procedure akin to a cruel, pain-inducing bloody assault, leaving them dismembered and labeled as "biohazardous waste." The time has come to grant full civil rights to all human beings in this country, born and unborn. Until that happens, we can take no pride in the freedoms we enjoy. Forty percent of unintended pregnancies end in abortion. Twenty-two percent of all pregnancies are aborted. That works out to more than 56 million deaths in nearly 40.5 years. This monstrous war against the unborn must stop. Now.
