The value of a human life is one of the things that distinquishes our country from many others in the world. Abortion does not value the life of a tiny, helpless baby. Women in favor of abortion say that they should have a say in what is done to their body. Who will speak for the babies inside of the womb about what will be done to their bodies?

Advocates of groups such as Planned Parenthood state that this facility provides healthcare that they would not have had otherwise. Consider this: What if there was a school that was accredited, had dedicated teachers, and provided first class resources, but committed unlawful acts in one wing of the building. Would it still be a wonderful school? This is true of health facilities who on one hand provide helpful services to women, but complete abortions. How about having organizations that help low income women with healthcare and that have professionals that counsel young women in how not to become pragnant or how to deal with an unwanted pregnancy without abortion (financial help available, adoption, etc.). 

Citizens, men and women, today need to be responsible for their actions and mindful of how their actions effect themselves and others. Democracy without value for human life will cease to exist.
