35th Anniversay of Roe v. Wade

Some thoughts to consider on this sad day:

"The purpose of marriage is not to have pleasure and to be idle but to procreate and bring up children, to support a household. Those who have no love for children are swine, stocks, and logs unworthy of being called men or women; for they despise the blessings of God, the Creator and Author of marriage." - Martin Luther

"The most merciful thing a large family can do to one of its infant members is to kill it." - Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood.

"I remain amazed that abortion could even become a political issue in a country with pretensions to being civilized. It is as if we were to debate the merits of legalizing cannibalism, with the liberal side chanting the slogan "Keep government out of the kitchen!"
There is no danger that the other side will ever be persuaded that it is wrong: there is, however, the very real danger that we will become discouraged, worn down, and inured to an evil that should always horrify and sicken us. The erosion of our consciences is surely part of the destructiveness of this abominable "procedure." - Joe Sobran

We joined others from our church family at the capital today for the pro-life rally and silent march. May God keep us from being "discouraged, worn down, and inured" until this evil is gone from our land.
