Statistics Cannot Be Compared



Ernestine Reza, mother of Gila County Democratic Chairman Mark Reza, defying all evidence to the contrary, proclaims that President Bush is "not pro-life" -- as if that would matter to a Democrat (Payson Roundup - 10/15/04).

This ideological blindness that cannot tell the difference between lives lost (3,000 one day at the World Trade Center) by terrorism; lives lost (1,000 Americans in a year and a half) in a war against terrorism; and lives lost (more than 4,000 per day) by "choice" in America's abortions is truly staggering.

Folks, there is a big difference between casualties of war and the deliberate, cold-blooded murder of innocent, defenseless, unborn or the "assisted" suicide of the frail elderly or disabled.

If people who actually believe in the sanctity of each human life made in the image and likeness of God don't get out and vote for the real pro-life candidates, we'll only have ourselves to blame when the Kerry juggernaut rolls across the land appointing only pro-abortion judges to the Supreme Court, protecting the barbaric partial birth abortion procedure, preventing the long-overdue overturning of Roe v. Wade, upholding every woman's "right" to kill her unborn child, creating human embryos as a crop to be harvested for their stem cells, and cloning human beings to prove we don't need God to create life anymore.

Like so many other Catholics, Kerry's conscience died a long time ago.
