An objection to outlawing abortion has been how will we afford to bring up all those babies that will be on the welfare system. Fifty seven percent of abortion patients have some college or graduated. I guess I have been stereotyping people thinking you have to be dumb or poor to have an abortion even after I read and write that abortion usually happens for convenience. When I think it is time to let someone else worry about the political side of abortion and should concentrate on the moral issue I read this and have to figure if abortion were not legal there would be a different mind set. Many would still not be thinking of the moral issue but knowing what they are doing to give life to a baby and the only option would be to raise a child or let adoptive parents have the privilege.

Matthew 5:9 PEACE MAKERS Whatever you think and believe about what is happenir you to pray for peace. Pray with members of your Pray alone. Pray with other members of your family. "Lord, instruments of your peace," should be our constant cry. I suggest that you pray the following: Eternal God, who brought forth all worlds from the being and nurtured creation to splendor in the cradle of We lift before you a world burdened with the power to itself and to return to you the breathless dust of a silenced God, in your mercy, show us the way of justice and the defense of what cannot be defended, we offer death a victory. ; God, in your gentleness, wean us from the enemy within that we may have grace and courage to prepare for diligence than any who labor to prepare for war.
