Help pregnant women to choose life

Mark 12:31
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

First, Virginia abortion facts –  More than 56 million children have been killed in the womb in the United States of America since Roe v Wade was decided to deny the right to life.  This is more than the number of people who died due to World War II.

Abortion rescues

   Secondly, when a sidewalk advocate is outside an abortion clinic on average between 1 and 5 women out of 20 will take a packet.  If there is no advocate standing, none of these women will get life saving details to help them choose a better option than abortion.

Abortion losses

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.”

Women’s Safety and Health Violations

Each abortion clinic averages 10 or more deaths by abortion in a week.  Some do this in a single day.

Since regulations were implemented less than 5 years ago, Virginia Women’s Wellness clinic in Virginia Beach has been cited for multiple health violations.  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.
