AFA: tens of thousands more will be saved by courageous, dedicated, and hard-working men and women
The American Family Association (AFA, www.afa.net) is rejoicing at the news that more than 10,000 babies have been saved from abortion in Texas since state enacted The Heartbeat Act (SB8). The law bans abortion after the baby’s heartbeat is detected, and the Biden Administration has sued to have the law declared invalid.
There are as many as 3,000 abortions a day in America, and more than 62 million have been aborted since the infamous Roe v. Wade ruling in 1973. Several pro-life proponents have compared that verdict by the Supreme Court to the 1857 ruling Dred Scott v. Sandford that maintained the legality of chattel slavery in the southern part of the United States.
“Before slavery was finally abolished, abolitionists transported tens of thousands of slaves to freedom via the Underground Railroad,” said AFA Executive Vice President Ed Vitagliano. “In the same way, as pro-lifers await the day when the scourge of abortion is finally ended, the lives of thousands of unborn children have been safeguarded by courageous, dedicated, and hard-working men and women. Those who understand the sanctity of human life must never stop fighting for each and every precious baby. Laws like the ones in Texas, Mississippi, and elsewhere may not end all abortions, but we rejoice in the lives that are saved.”
