Read it and Weep...Please pray for the end of Abortion. Even our "CINO" schools don't care about the unborn. Look at Georgetown or Boston College.
The SHOCKING truth: 1.72 BILLION abortions worldwide.
Dear LifeNews.com Readers,
Thank you very much for the strong level of support you showed LifeNews this past week. Because of your donations and financial support, we are now 39% of the way to our $50,000 goal for our April fundraising campaign.
But with 13 days out of the month so far, we're just behind the pace we need to be to finish the month at our goal.
Please take five minutes TODAY to help LifeNews continue to provide pro-life news, opinion and information to millions of readers each and every month by making a donation online.
I want to give you an additional reason to support LifeNews, and help you understand one of the ways in which your financial support will help us.
While most LifeNews.com readers are Americans, the largest growing percentage of our readership consists of people who live across the globe and are fighting abortion battles large and small in their own countries.
Although the United States has seen 57 million abortions since 1973 when Roe v. Wade ushered in an era of abortion on demand, abortion on a worldwide scale is even more of a travesty. Did you know that more than 1.72 billion abortions have taken place worldwide over the last 40 years? There have been 336 million abortions in China alone.
Recognizing the need to fight pro-life battles across the globe, LifeNews is pushing hard, with your support, to reach new readers on an international level. We definitely need your support to make this possible!
To further the goal of protecting unborn children internationally, LifeNews has stepped up its coverage of international pro-life issues. To help us accomplish this, we've brought on board a new writer who understands firsthand the ways in which the abortion industry is pushing abortions globally.
Cora Sherlock is the Deputy Chairperson of the Pro Life Campaign, a lobby group which has been working for over 30 years to keep Ireland abortion-free. She will be blogging on a range of pro-life issues at LifeNews, to help keep our readers informed about her group's efforts to keep legalized abortion out of Ireland.
"I am honored and delighted to be joining the team at LifeNews, which does such a wonderful job of delivering pro-life news in a timely and professional way," she says.
Sherlock adds: "The pro-life cause in Ireland suffered a huge setback in 2013 when the Government ignored all the peer reviewed medical evidence and introduced a law allowing abortion up to birth for women with suicidal ideation. While we are dismayed that Ireland is no longer abortion free, the pro-life battle here is far from lost. We are determined to have this unjust and inhumane law repealed before it becomes embedded."
"I look forward to reporting on this ongoing battle for readers of LifeNews as the pro-life movement in Ireland intensifies its efforts to overturn the new law," she concludes.
That 1.72 billion abortion number is absolutely staggering. It continues to grow day by day and LifeNews is determined to do everything possible to help our pro-life friends around the world.
Will you stand with us to stop this worldwide abortion travesty? Please take a few minutes now to go to our online donation page and make a donation to support LifeNews.
Thank you and may God bless you and your family.
Sincerely for Life,
Steven Ertelt, Editor
