In Their Own Words

I received a card in the mail today from a group that calls itself Mississippians for Healthy Families based out of Jackson, MS. This card contains several reasons from the perspective of this group, as to why people should vote against Initiative 26.

While I could spend a lot of time debunking their reasons not to protect human life on a government level, I would like to focus on just one statement that these folks put in their own literature, it says:

“Sadly, not everyone is ready to be a parent - Initiative 26 would mean more children growing up without the love or support they need.”

I had to read that again to make sure that’s what this group really said. In this one statement:

1. They call an expectant mother a parent. Being a parent means that you have a child. They know and admit that it is children who are killed by abortion.
2. They say that more what? Children would grow up without the love or support they need.

Abortion kills children. Little boys and little girls. The only difference between them and the boys and girls who blow out a single candle on a birthday cake is that their lives are snuffed out before they get to have a birthday.

So the answer to making sure that children grow up with all of the love and support they need is to kill the ones that are unwanted by their parents? Really? Excuse me, but somebody failed to talk about the people on waiting lists for years just to be able to adopt a little boy or girl. There is no such thing as an unwanted child.

Don’t be fooled by these hypocrites. They know that abortion kills children. If you are in favor of recognizing life as life, and truly believe that our Constitution guarantees Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, then please, vote yes for Initiative 26 on November 8.
