Thoughts for life I I The Laci Peterson case has to be a dilemma for the pro-abortion people who don't believe a baby is a baby until he is totally out of the womb. Even at nine months and the head is not yet out they endorse the right to kill him. The public would surely rally against them if they were to speak now as they believed and say there was only one murder. I just saw a cartoon that showed a girl at an abortion clinic. The counselor is saying "life begins at birth". The girl says "you mean the thing in me isn't alive?" Counselor - "that's right". Girl - "then why do I need an abortion' ?" Women deserve better than abortion. I Prairie Five menu • Reservations may be made by calling the Senior Center.
