To the Editor:
January 22 will be forty years since the Roe v. Wade decision, where the Supreme Court fabricated the "right" to abortion that exists nowhere in the Constitution, throwing out laws against abortion in all fifty states.
This opened the floodgates to a slaughter which is unprecedented in human history. Fifty million unborn children have been killed since then, many times more than the Nazi Holocaust.
How can someone be so warped as to murder 20 children in Newtown Connecticut? Some have blamed violent video games (even though violent crime has gone down in the last 20 years as the video game industry has boomed) and others blame the wide availability of so-called "assault weapons."
There is one answer no one wants to look at. I do not believe you can have 50 million abortions - over three thousand babies legally killed every single day of every single year - without drastically reducing the respect for life. When we terminate life so easily, we send the message that life is not sacred.
The Rally for Life will be at 2:00 pm on January 20, 2013 at the Monroe County Courthouse square. Come and tell our community that the violence must end.
