To the editor:
Tuesday marks the 40th year since Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that tragically legalized abortion of unborn children. Since then, more than 50 million lives have been lost to abortion. And, both women and men have suffered the consequences of aborting their own children.
Recently, Planned Parenthood released its annual report. According to the report, in one year Planned Parenthood performed 333,964 abortions (about 1 every 94 seconds), and, according to lifenews.com: "Those abortions were estimated to have generated $150 million dollars for the 'nonprofit' organization." And, in that one year, Planned Parenthood received more than $542 million in taxpayer money.
Take a stand against taxpayer funding of organizations that perform abortions. Take a stand against the culture of death, a culture where life is no longer valued. Life is a gift ... take a stand for life.
