Roe v. Wade Overturned!

Nope, not yet, but it will be.

Why the cheap trick to get you to check this article? Because that is the headline I am looking forward to seeing in the near future, and through our efforts it will happen.

We will end abortion in this country. We will end it by marching together in the Monthly Call for Life.

In the past, millions have taken up the march when they wanted to speak out against injustices.
> Vietnam - I may not agree with the marchers, but at least many stood up in non-violent protest for what they believed in
> Revolutionary war
> Tiananmen square
> Civil Rights

From the

"WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness-That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation no such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

As many of us Pro Lifers have stated over the years, there it is in black & white, we have the "right" to Life.

"Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government,"

Our government has become destructive of these ends. Through Roe v. Wade over 40 million Americans have been killed in the last 32 years.

I'm not advocating the overthrow of our government since that would obviously be too complicated. I'm saying we should hold our elected representatives accountable for what we want them to do.

> If we want them to end abortion, they should end abortion if that is one of the things we are electing them for
> If we want them to protect our borders they should do that
> If we want them to establish laws protecting our children from predators they should do that

Tiananmen square From Wikipedia

Too often I hear how people won't vote because "why bother, the person is not going to do what is promised in the speeches anyway".

You don't walk away from or not get involved in politics for that reason, you strengthen your resolve to take those to task who are elected when they don't do what they say they will do.

So many say that the voice of the people comes through in the vote. I disagree, the vote is only the first step. After that, we have to pay attention to the person we voted for to make sure he/she is doing what was promised, and if not, we express our disapproval.

Concerning the issue of abortion, it is time to hold our politicians to task. Ninety percent of Republicans and Ten percent of Democrats say they are Pro Life so let's challenge them to put their money where their mouth is. If our government wanted to stop the horror of killing unborn people they could have done so many years ago, but since there is no consistent, focused public outcry, they think we want to just make it "safe and rare".

If we want change we have to demand it, not ask for it!

Annual March for Life in Washington D.C.

America, spread the word that it is time to end abortion. Tell everyone you know who really wants abortion to stop to get involved in the Pro Life movement and the Monthly Call for Life.

Talk is cheap if it isn't directed at those who can change the laws. I can be a big mouth all I want with my friends, but to consistently call my elected officials and challenge them to do the right thing takes determination. I need to have that determination. I won't stop abortion if all I do is talk to my friends or those who disagree with me. The people who will change these laws work for us in government.

We the people can encourage them to do the right thing through our voices in the Monthly Call for Life.

Be a part of Life, help people live, let your voice be heard every month until abortion is made illegal as it should be.
