Life begins at conception. “A person is a person no matter how small” is an axiom. The denial of this fact is the biggest lie that the pro-abortion, anti-life crowd promulgates. Many times the blatant refusal to accept this scientific fact gives anti-lifers the right to ignore or cover-up the consequences of their selfishness and immorality.
There is a varied group of pro-lifers that is holding a 40 day vigil at the local abortion referral facility that began September 28th. These peaceful volunteers stand up for the unborn. Why are they doing this? They do so because unborn lives matter, just as all lives matter. According to the Judeo-Christian Bible the Creator knew each of us and formed us even before we were in our mother’s womb…
40 Days for Life is a national and international undertaking held twice a year, each spring and fall. 2016 was the first year that this campaign has come to North Central Ohio/Mansfield. The three main components of this and of every 270 other locations that are occurring across America are: Prayer and Fasting, Community Outreach and a Peaceful Vigil. The peaceful vigil is carried out daily between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. at the local abortion-referring facility. People hold signs, pray, encourage each other and the surrounding community with the purpose of bringing an end to the abortion atrocity.
“Abortion is healthcare,” vehemently cry the anti-lifers. Far from it! They claim that the fictitious so-called “reproductive rights” take precedence over the right to life of the person growing in the mother’s womb.” This, too, is a lie, a denial of the humanity of the child, a gross violation of the civil rights, dignity and personhood of the child.
The 40 Days for Life campaign ends on Sunday, November 6 and there is still time for pro-life supporters and pro-life activist to join the peaceful vigil. Visit the Mansfield, Ohio location on https://40daysforlife.com/ for more information.
It is critical that every registered voter consider carefully the life issue when voting this year in the November 8th General Election. The party platforms give a major clue as to who will support life and who will continue the intolerable expansion of the death culture which has been occurring in recent years.
