Americans have been told for decades that abortion is a safe, simple procedure which removes a “blob of tissue” or a “clump of cells” from a woman's uterus. But these “facts” are not true. Abortion is neither safe nor simple. It does not simply remove a “blob of tissue” from the uterus. Abortion takes the life of a living human being. Medical science has proven that life begins at the time of conception. Conception is defined as when the sperm cell enters, or fertilizes, the egg. This is the moment that a new human life begins. To take a new human life is murderwhether inside or outside the womb. Check out these facts:
• Since 1973, 50 MILLION American babies have been legally killed on American soil by their fellow Americans.
• In the year 2000, more children died from abortion than Americans died in the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, World Wars I and II, the Korean, Vietnam and Gulf Wars combined.
• There were over 3,600 abortions per day in the year 2000, 151 per hour, one every 24 seconds.
• In the year 2000, for every 1,000 live births, there were 306 abortions.
• On September 11, 2001, 2,985 Americans lost their lives (44 in Pennsylvania, 189 at the Pentagon and 2,752 in the World Trade Center Towers) in the terrorist attacks on American soil by radical Muslim extremists. Compare that with 3,600 Americans killed every day, in their mother's womb, in the year 2000. There is a 9/11 EVERYDAY in America!

For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. Psalm 139:13-16 KJV
Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee . . . Jeremiah 1:5a KJV
Did not he that made me in the womb make him? and did not one fashion us in the womb? Job 31:15
Thou shalt not kill. —Exodus 20:13
Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked. —Psalm 82:3-4
If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain; If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works? —Proverbs 24:11-12
