"Murder is against God’s law and man’s law." - Christin M.
"Because I believe that God is the only person, with the exception of self defense, who has the right to take life. He is the one who gives life and He is the ONLY one who should take it away. I have also experienced first hand the affects of abortion and have seen how it affects the family as a whole. Abortion just doesn't effect the child and the person having one, it effects ALL of us." - Kimberly H.
"It is murder." - Rebecca T.
"Thou shall not kill." - Steve C.
"God created every life from conception to natural death. No one has that right to take any life (except in defense of ones country or self) but especially the defenseless. It may be a woman's body but the little soul within her has his/her right to be born according to God's perfection." - Dianna W.
