Letter: War continues on the unborn

Dear editor,

Jan. 22 marked 47 years since the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions. Those rulings nullified legal protection for unborn children nationwide.

Consequently about 650,000 unborn children have been killed here in Minnesota, nearly 10,000 last year. More than 60 million have been killed nationwide, nearly 900,000 nationwide each year. Women, men, and families have been wounded. Our culture has been stained.

Planned Parenthood's latest report shows it committed more abortions in a single year than ever before - 345,672. That's nearly 950 babies killed each day, nearly 40 lives an hour, every hour all year. Planned Parenthood set another record. This one is for your tax dollars it took - $616.8 million last year alone.

We see loss of life in wars around the world, but we do not see the loss of children in the WAR on the UNBORN. We need to pray and vote for a stop to this unnecessary killing.

When did we stop getting along, having hatred and division, loneliness and sadness? Where did it come from? "Because from the very beginning you were considered worthless!"

Judgment Day by deceased Congressman Henry Hyde:

When the time comes as it surely will, when we face that awesome moment, the Final Judgment, I've often thought, as Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen wrote, that it is a terrible moment of loneliness. You have no advocates. You are there standing alone before God, and the terror will grip your soul like nothing you can imagine. But l really think that those in the pro-life movement will not be alone. I think there will be a chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world but are heard beautifully and clearly in the next world. They will plead for everyone who has ever been in this movement. They will say to God, "Spare him/her because he/she loved us." And God will look at you and not say, "Did you succeed?" Rather, He will say, "Did you try?"
