A Time to Mourn

This is an unborn baby at 24 weeks gestation. In today's America, his life would be at risk if his mother decided a baby was inconvenient for her.

Legally, he's not a "person." I'm not sure what the courts think is sucking his thumb--a puppy, a kitten, a turtle? Certainly not a person.

Well over 40 million babies like this one, and younger, have died since the Roe v. Wade decision was handed down on this date in 1973. Four times as many as Hitler killed in the Holocaust. It is beyond a tragedy what our country has done.

This is a day for mourning. And prayer.

I have two college friends who had triplets at 25.5 weeks. One had a genetic problem and died shortly after birth, but the other two are doing extremely well.

Those who would abort babies don't want to think that about them as human beings, but it doesn't change the facts.
