Letter To The Editor

Planned Parenthood released its annual report.

The report states that its healthcare workers performed 321,384 abortions in the United States last fiscal year. That is the equivalent of 36 unborn babies killed every hour.

Did you know that last year, Planned Parenthood also received $543.7 million from our federal, state and local taxes? Over $400 million comes from federal taxes alone.

We can be thankful that our Ohio legislature is doing its best to keep all state/local tax money from funding abortions.

In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court opened our nation to the legal opportunity to kill one’s unborn baby. According to Gallup Polls, since 1994, 57.58% of Americans have stated that abortion should be illegal in all or almost all cases.

This year’s Gallup Polls edition, conducted in May, reflected the same finding. If the majority of Americans think abortion should be illegal in all or almost all cases, why do we allow it to remain legal? And why do we allow our tax money to fund it?

Let us get to action, Americans! Let us call our United States senators and representatives and admonish them to stop the use of our tax money for abortion.

And let us support our Crisis Pregnancy Centers, and adoption/foster care agencies, so that there are ample opportunities for babies to be born and cared for.

Lastly, let us reconcile with the Lord God Almighty and ask His help to end legal aborting in our nation.

We need to stop downgrading God’s holy Bible to malleable traditions or irrelevant cultural practices.

Let us recognize God’s holy Bible as what God says it is, “All scripture is God’s breath...”
