Vote your (pro-life) conscience!
By Matt C. Abbott

    ...Roe v. Wade was based on the premise — indeed, on the philosophy — that the woman stands alone. Abortion isolates the woman from all other human beings in the world. Under Roe, no one, not parents or boyfriend or husband, and much less a stranger, has any claim on the woman and her baby. In the philosophy of Roe there are no inherent human relationships. As Sr. Mary of Albany once told me — we are related to one another only if we choose to be.

    — From the book Abandoned: The Untold Story of the Abortion Wars, by Monica Migliorino Miller

For whatever it's worth, I highly recommend not donating to CRS or CCHD.
