Know the Truth, Be Educated, Be Informed:

 You’ve heard of Roe v. Wade but do know about Doe v. Bolton?  Doe v. Bolton was both passed at the same time in 1973 as Roe v. Wade and together means that abortion is legal, on demand throughtout all 9 months of pregnancy.   

Why should Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton be overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court? To return this important issue to the American people, to those who are trouble by abortion and this extreme policy.   Fetal surgies, 4D Ultrasounds, dismemberment abortion and fetal tissue sales have shown the humanity of the unborn in ways that were previously unknown.  Our present abortion policy is so drastic and extreme and people are ready to discuss this gruesome killing of unborn children and how the unborn child fits into our human family.  Many women turn to abortion because they were unaware of free pregnancy help.  In MI, we have over 100 pregnancy help centers that care for women and families and they can call 1-800-57-WOMAN to find help as well.  Legal abortion has led to making abortion so easy and acceptable that our repeat abortion rate is now more than 50% with some woman having two, three or more abortions.  As long as abortion is legal, it sends the message that abortion is right and moral. We need to provide LIFE-AFFIRMING solutions to the problems that push a woman toward abortions.
