What really struck me and the reason Dr. Mohler forwarded the link was a staggering and macabre statistic in the middle of Ms. Simmons essay:
…the nations capital has one of the highest abortion rates in the country: 265 abortions for every 100 live births.Read that again. A child conceived in Washington D.C., the capital of the land of the free and the home of the brave, is 2.5 times more likely to be aborted than be carried to term.
Abortion has already killed off a generation of Americans to the tune of tens of millions of lives lost on the bloody altar of choice and convenience. As I mentioned in a previous post, based on the reality of nearly 50,000,000 abortions in America, nearly one out of seven Americans who should be alive today are not. 50,000,000 Americans who will never buy a car, will never have a job, will never pay a single penny in taxes, will not be around to support America’s burgeoning elderly population that will rely on the younger generation to fund Social Security and Medicare. It is insane that in the midst of a budget crisis, some on the Left want to keep subsidizing with Federal tax dollars those organizations that are engaged in killing off future tax payers.
