The widespread practice of abortion is a plague causing more deaths of innocent babies than any plague of the past. The so-called Freedom of Choice Act, if passed, will not bring about freedom. Rather, it will put pregnant women of any age in bondage. They will be given the "right" to kill innocent babies and the "right" to suffer themselves the pain of a serious medical procedure accompanied by guilt, depression, sorrow and possible future infertility, under the guise of sexual freedom.
Even minors can "choose" to place themselves in that agonizing situation without their parent's knowledge. This could result in serious negative health issues for these girls. Can those clamoring for abortion rights be that lacking in concern for our daughters and their unborn children?
Hospitals and medical practitioners who conscientiously object to abortions will be in bondage as well, being open to lawsuits for refusing to perform abortions. State legislatures will be in bondage, losing their right to create or enforce laws that would restrict abortions in any way.
I urge all of us who believe in God to take a stand against the passage of the Freedom of Choice Act for abortion.
