Pearl Buck has been quoted as saying, “... the test of a civilization is the way that it cares for its helpless members.”
In our society, none are more helpless than unborn babies, and yet none are more threatened than unborn babies. In spite of that, abortion continues to be legal and the slaughter of unborn babies continues. Abortion is now even funded by our federal tax dollars.
As we mourn the Jan. 22, 1973 legalization of abortion in our nation, may each of us do what we can to support pro-life candidates, life-saving pregnancy centers, the Center for Arizona Policy and Care Net. We should also each be grateful that our parents allowed us to live.
In the time it has taken to read this letter, two more unborn babies in the United States have lost that opportunity.
