33 years of abortion

To the Editor:

January 22 marked the 33rd anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision. It was a gloomy anniversary. What can our nation say about 33 years of abortion on demand? Is there any regret for the 45 million aborted

children? How many potential scientists, doctors, lawyers, teachers and priests were aborted? Is there any regret over the countless women injured in the abortion mills? How will most people remember this anniversary? Many planned to attend the March for Life in Washington, D.C. to let them know that legalized abortion is unacceptable in a nation founded on certain inalienable rights; LIFE, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Will the March receive any press this year? Every year the story is rarely talked about in the mainstream media, even though it is one of the biggest marches in Washington. For those who have never spoken out against

abortion, I ask that they begin to attend pro-life events and support pro-life groups such as pregnancy crisis centers... How can we continue to sleep at night with 4,000 children dying every day?

Many say that abortion is no longer a relevant issue. Even though many years have

past since Roe vs. Wade, abortion is a new tragedy because the babies who die today never died before.
