This year marks the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court Case that made abortion legal. I am vehemently opposed to this law. Why? Here are 5 reasons.
1. It’s claimed too many lives.
In 2011 alone, over 300,000 babies were aborted by Planned Parenthood.
2. Ninety percent of Down Syndrome babies have been aborted.

3.Russia and Italy are two countries in population crisis.
proof: http://www.rand.org/pubs/issue_papers/IP162/index2.html This is an example of countries not being able to meet the replacement rate, the principle that newborns replace those who die off.
4. A baby is a life, before and after birth.
As a Christian, one of the precepts is “Thou shalt not kill.” I cannot think of a life more important than that of an unborn child.
5. Abortion leads to depression and other psychological trauma.
Studies have linked abortion to depression and suicide.
These are just some reasons I have. In future articles, I will explore these and other reasons in more depth.
