Why the abortion issue matters now, more than ever before!
Every second you’re awake… you decide – where to go, what to eat, how you will think about certain situations, the music you listen to… Will you go to the movies or save a few bucks and watch a DVD at home? Finish that important project early or wait for that last-minute moment of inspiration? Some decisions in life matter more than others, the trick is making the right decision at the right moment and finding the strength to see it through.
No decision in history is more debated or passionately discussed than the issue of life, unintended pregnancies and abortion. In the abortion issue, there are two sides: pro-life and pro-choice. This may not be new info for you, but you may be surprised to learn that, in the US, “nearly half of the pregnancies among American women are unintended, and about four in 10 of these are terminated by abortion.”*
Statistics are one thing, but in your city and in your neighborhood, life and death decisions are being made every day. You may not have ever stopped to realize that you know someone who has, is, or will struggle with the biggest decision they will ever face as they choose between life or death for their unborn child.
When you understand that life begins at conception, the decision to abort or give birth is undoubtedly, a life or death decision. LIFEsocal is here to encourage and help people CHOOSE LIFE, because Life Is For Everyone.
