The Assault on Children in the Womb

"Madonna and Child" (detail) by Sassoferrato

An oppressive darkness has settled upon the United States of America. Forty-six years ago, on January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court of the United States “legalized” abortion on demand and this country has never recovered from the damage inflicted on our moral fiber as tens of millions of children have been sacrificed on the “altar of self” out of expediency […]
