Help pregnant women to choose life
The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” One way to obey this is to help pregnant women choose life.
Fast facts on abortion in Virginia
According to a report from 2013 in the Daily Press:
“Each year in Virginia, for approximately every four live births, there’s one induced termination of pregnancy, or abortion. In 2011, for example, there were 102,525 live births and 23,635 induced terminations, according to the state’s Division of Vital Statistics.
That’s a significant reduction from a few years ago. State records show that while the birth rate declined steadily between 2007 and 2011 (the most recent year with complete statistics available) for a drop of more than 5 percent, the abortion rate in Virginia fell by 18 percent during that same period.”
Each abortion clinic averages 10 or more deaths by abortion in a week. Some do this in a single day.
Virginia Women’s Wellness clinic in Virginia Beach has been cited for multiple health violations since regulations were implemented less than 5 years ago. According to the Virginian Pilot in 2014 the Virginia Department of Health found:
“The March inspection report said that 18 of the clinic’s 44 patients in January experienced complications. Fifteen returned to the clinic with a complaint ‘related to an incomplete termination of their pregnancy,’ the report said. Eleven chose to receive a second dosing of the medication, and four opted for a surgical procedure.”
If you care about preserving lives in America, you should take a look at this reasonable analysis of the gun control and anti-abortion control arguments, which both seem to come from a libertarian perspective on opposite political far sides.
