    “Heavy media coverage” in the U.S.! WE WISH! RARE is the secular news outlet that showed a pro-life crowd larger than the couple dozen pro-abortion counterpart. Meanwhile, as you stated, hundreds of thousands of joyful people of every age gathered for the 40th year of this nightmare of genocide of the new target: the tiny, preborn human life. ROMA! Don’t repeat our deceptive practices! Don’t fear the truth! Let it be told!

    I would love to hear of the Pro Life ers spending time feeding, caring for, nuturing, giving homes to the homeless, hungry,
    abandoned, raped, human trafficked, orphaned, mentally and emotionally ill, etc, millions of children already on this planet.
    I would love to see the mega wealthy cathedrals and churches be converted into
    accommodation to the homeless families, to the poor, to the sick.

    Where are you?

    Solution is simple. If you don’t believe abortion is “moral,” don’t have an abortion. But you have no right to even try to force your religious beliefs onto the scientific convictions of others. That goes for religious leaders, politicians, and everyone else.

    It’s the same as same-sex marriage. If you don’t believe same-sex marriage is “moral,” don’t participate in any way in a same-sex marriage. The privilege of church ministers to preside at marriages, thus eliminating the need of both a civil and church marriage is just that, a privilege. It in no way gives any church leader or any church member the right to force their religious belief on anyone else.

  • An abortion is a procedure to end a pregnancy. It uses medicine or surgery to remove the embryo or fetus and placenta from the uterus. The procedure is done by a licensed health care professional. The decision to end a pregnancy is very personal. If you are thinking of having an abortion, most healthcare providers advise counseling.`.^;
