"Abortion is advocated only by persons who have themselves been born."
On January 22, 1973 the United States Supreme Court ruled that a woman’s desire to terminate an unwanted pregnancy was protected by the Constitution. Since this landmark decision (Roe v. Wade), over 50 million abortions have been performed in the United States.

However, despite the fact that abortion is legal, it remains one of its most divisive ethical and political issues of our time. The passions run deep on this debate and the opposing camps are entrenched in a battle that appears to be without end. Both sides see this as a moral question.

Opponents of abortion see it as a horrible evil in which the most innocent in society are victims. As such they deserve the protection of legislator and jurist alike.
This page of our website examines the abortion controversy and presents a case in favor of LIFE. The articles we have included demonstrate that the pro-choice position is actually no choice at all. Furthermore, these articles expose those positions as among the most disingenuous on the political landscape today. In reality, few causes have relied more on ignorance to buttress their point than those employed by abortion rights groups. Whether it is the poling data they employ to show “wide spread” support of their position, or the scientific arguments they use when defining their terms, organizations like Planned Parenthood and the National Organization of Women reek with dishonesty when waging their war for “reproductive rights.” The fact is that both polling data and medical opinion forcefully argue against abortion as opposed to embracing it.
Finally, this section of our site presents the position of scripture on this issue–for indeed the God of the Bible has a very strong opinion regarding it. God’s word is not silent here, nor will be His judgement.
