42 mHz

Every 24 seconds, another American child is brutally murdered in the sanctity of his mother's womb. In this country of ours that declares all men are created equal, we still deny the most basic inalienable rights to the weakest among us.

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
