"Abortion is murder, and all life should be valued and protected." - Michael W.
"We should not be murdering innocent children. They should have the right to live their lives and not be murdered. It is crime to commit murder why are they exempt. I believe they are God's gift." - Marty R.
"The best way to answer this is to tell my story. I graduated college believing that it was really a woman’s choice because we really didn’t know when life began. Well fast forward 2 years as my wife and I are expecting our first. We were at the doctor’s office for the very first ultrasound. As we both heard that little heart beating my wife looked up at me and said, “Still not sure when life begins?” It was then I knew that the only choice is life. Life begins at conception and life is precious." - Mark R.
"Every child is a gift from the Lord. We should cherish the unborn just as much as the born!" - Stephanie F.
"Abortion is murder....a holocaust...the slaughter of the Innocents. We must protect our unborn. God knows our names before we are formed." - Rick H.
"It goes against the Word of God." - Will S.
