Pro-lifers are not enemies of the state

A recent letter states that pro-lifers’ defense of human life in the womb is based on “two key assumptions – both unproven and improvable. One is the existence of a loving God. The other is the notion that, since we are presumably created in this God’s image, humans are special, unique, sacred.” Yet he gives no evidence that these beliefs are unproven and improvable.

Here are two of the many credible books that give proof that the two assumptions listed above are reasonable: “Abortion: Questions and Answers” by John C. Willke, M.D., and Barbara H. Willke, R.N., and “Dangers to the Faith: Recognizing Catholicism’s 21st Century Opponents” by Al Kresta.

Am I, a Catholic pro-lifer who has been peaceably involved for many years in helping mothers who freely choose to give birth to the human life in their womb, and offer them any help that they need to do so, an enemy of the state?
