LETTER: Abortion toll worse than that of WWII
To the Editor:
Sixty six years ago, during the Second World War in Europe, six million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians and 1,900 Catholic priests were murdered, raped, burned, starved and humiliated by Russian and German authorities. The people looked the other way. As incomprehensible as that was, today we are intentionally murdering our babies every day.
There have been more than 50 million babies' lives snuffed out by abortion in the last 40 years since Roe v. Wade went into effect. Could this be one of the underlying reasons that the United States, as well as the rest of the world, is losing its morality? The March For Life was conducted in many U.S. cities Jan. 22 by dedicated people who desire to save the lives of these precious babies.
Previously, most media have not attended or ignored reporting this public outcry, so much of the public does not know the truth and seriousness of abortions. We are shocked when children are killed by other means but lethargic to abortions. They say the mother has the right to choose, but doesn't the baby the same right? Babies are helpless; aren't we supposed to protect our children as we are now trying to protect them from being gunned down? May each of us examine our conscience and work to protect our babies.
