Presbyterians Pro-Life ENEWS, December 2016
by Mateen Elass
C. S. Lewis freed me from the fear of enjoying fairy tales as an adult. In a collection of essays on literature he wrote, ““When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty, I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”

Sunday, January 22, 2016 is the 44th anniversary of the United States Supreme Court Decision known as Roe v. Wade which effectively legalized abortion in all 50 of the United States wiping out state legislation that had previously protected unborn human beings in many States.

Since that time approximately 58 million unborn children have been surgically aborted in American and many more worldwide. Millions more fall prey early in pregnancy to chemical abortions and the advent of "emergency contraception." No war, disease or violence has brought such a catastrophic loss of human life as abortion.
