Why Henderson Residents Want To See Abortion Outlawed in Their City
"Abortion is a violation of human rights and the law of God." - Anthony B.
"Every life matters. I have five adopted sons. I'm adoption motivated and have many friends who would also love to adopt a child if a mother chooses life and cannot take care of her child." - Maureen D.
"Innocent babies deserve a chance at life. Period." - Scott M.
"Against my faith." - Claude R.
"Simply put, it is a sin against God." - Michael C.
"Because it is against Gods commandments." - Jean C.
"I am a mother of two and a christian and I believe that all unborn babies have the right to live no matter what. I also believe that adoption is better than murdering the unborn." - Sonja W.
"Abortion is murder, plain and simple.
So much hurt, pain, shame, and guilt happen as a result of abortion. It destroys much more than the individual life of a child. May God show Himself powerfully through this undertaking!" - Timothy P.
"Abortion is murder of the most heinous kind. It is the murder of the innocent and defenseless. It is the violation of the human contract built into the heart of humankind to protect the children. I pray for the day we will look back at our abortion practices with the same horror land dread as we do slavery and the holocaust. We may not be able to change these atrocious laws at the national level yet, but we can at least do our part to limit the impact that our community has on ending the precious lives." - George M.
