When a woman has a miscarriage, it is a sad event. She tells family and friends, “I lost my baby. People are kind and sympathetic. When a pregnant woman is injured in an accident and the doctors can only save her life, they say, “We saved her life, but even though we tried as hard as we could, we could not save the child.” We are saddened when we hear of such events.

We all know that when a woman is pregnant, the “thing” inside of her is a baby, a young human being. Everyone recognizes that. Even an older sibling will talk about their new baby brother or sister that is “in mommy’s tummy.”

If we deliberately end the life of that child, we can only do so by killing it. Everyone knows this, too. So why do we pretend that abortion is anything other than killing a baby?

The answer is that we don’t. Adult Americans all know that anytime a growing child is killed in the womb on purpose, we are engaged in killing children.

Tragically, our country has become the biggest killer of children that has ever existed. Fifty million American children have perished.



If their bodies were to be piled on top of one another, they would make a pile as big as a football field and as high as the Washington Monument.

Both mother and child deserve all the love, kindness and consideration that America can bestow on them.
