Abortion Clinicscomment (0)

As a longtime receiver of The Alabama Baptist, I read and like the articles and pictures that appear each week.
In reading the recent front page about the lesser number of abortion clinics in Alabama (Sept. 19 issue, “Birmingham abortion clinic closes as part of national trend, leaves 5 clinics in state”) I am pleased to read there are fewer such clinics. Kudos for Alabama.
When I noticed the factoid in the upper right hand photo saying “more than 50 million abortions have been performed since abortion was legalized in 1973,” I thought, “Wow!”
When you realize the population of the United States as of Sept. 18 is about 316,707,000 people, we have successfully eliminated about 15.6 percent of our population.
When you think about 50 million people not alive, that means that many people will never vote, have families, work and contribute to our country, and pay taxes to help finance our country.
I realize there are some good reasons for abortions such as to save a mother’s life, incest and rape, but I guess most are abortions of convenience.
The world still condemns Nazi Germany for eliminating over six million Jews throughout Europe. I have visited the Holocaust Museum in Washington and came away sickened at what went on during WWII by the Nazis.
I wonder if in the future someone will build a museum dedicated to the loss of America’s 50 million babies?
Just because an abortion is [legal], it doesn’t make it right.
I applaud the people in the photo on the right-hand part of the first page wanting an end to abortion.
Perhaps one day God-inspired national leaders will repeal this terrible law so our country can return to Christian principles. And let’s have Alabama be the national front runner for closing abortion clinics.
