It is still considered a perfectly legitimate practice in America (even one taxpayers are expected to subsidize!) to slaughter unborn babies for money. These prenatal hit men are allowed to roam free, killing over a million innocents every year.
Ever since this country was founded eleven score and thirteen years ago, we have seen a slow but steady progression towards equality of all our human family. It is for this reason that I hold that we will eventually reach this goal, and there are even advances being made today.
I know it's cliché, but I'd like to end with a quote.
"I am aware, that many object to the severity of my language; but is there not cause for severity? I will be as harsh as truth, and as uncompromising as justice. On this subject, I do not wish to think, or speak, or write, with moderation. No! no! Tell a man whose house is on fire, to give a moderate alarm; tell him to moderately rescue his wife from the hand of the ravisher; tell the mother to gradually extricate her babe from the fire into which it has fallen; -- but urge me not to use moderation in a cause like the present. I am in earnest -- I will not equivocate -- I will not excuse -- I will not retreat a single inch -- AND I WILL BE HEARD. The apathy of the people is enough to make every statue leap from its pedestal, and to hasten the resurrection of the dead."
~William Lloyd Garrison
