Abortion - #2551 - Congress May Take Up Pro-Life Measures - Citizen Link (2) And Down Will Come Baby - Family Research Council

There are times in the pro-life movement when words are just inadequate. Yesterday, when the Guttmacher Institute announced a spike in U.S. abortions, reporters hurried to file their stories. And while most of them managed to communicate the data--almost none conveyed the loss. Instead of reflecting on the 1,212,350 unique members of society that America will never know, the headlines all minimized the tragedy that is "choice."
