Life chain keeps growing

Letter to the editor

Editor :

Smithers Pro- Life recently hosted a Life Chain.  The Life Chain increased in attendance by 44 per cent from last year’s life chain.

Put aside just for a moment, that abortion is the brutal ending to a human life.

If we leave things alone in nature, 105 boys are born to every 100 girls.

Yet in India today, there are 112 boys born to every 100 girls.

In China, 121 boys to 100 girls, in some towns in China, 150 boys to 100 girls.

This is a huge imbalance!  What causes this imbalance is access to abortion.

Since the late 1970s, 163 million female babies have been aborted by parents seeking sons.

So much for the feminist movement empowering women!  The very movement itself is destroying its own.

This is where “choice” has led.

There are only two alternatives.

-Restrict (ban) abortion

– or accept the slaughter (brutal ending) of millions of baby girls, and the consequences that will come with this.

(Any one can read more about this on Wall Street  Journal’s website.  Title “War against girls”.)
