If I told you more people are killed by this one thing every year than we lost in the entire Viet Nam war and we could eliminate it, would you be in favor of that? Would you think we need an exit strategy? I doubt it. I think most people are fine with it and don’t really care.

That one thing is loss of life from drunk driving. For almost 50 years (roughly from 1960 to about 2010), we averaged between 40,000 and 50,000 deaths on the roadways. Nearly half of those from drunk driving.

According to the CDC, every day, almost 30 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver. This amounts to one death every 51 minutes.

The CDC also reports that a baby is aborted in this country about every 45 SECONDS. Planned Parenthood calls this Reproductive Health Care. I call it vile.

Exodus 1:17 says “But the midwives feared God, and did not do as the king of Egypt had commanded them, but let the boys live.”

You know, everyone killed in a drunk driving accident had parents, and their death wasn’t planned. The men and women who choose abortion as a convenient form of birth control don’t want to be parents and didn’t plan to get pregnant. So help me understand how they can call themselves “Planned Parenthood.” I’ve never seen a daycare option there while mom goes to work. Free lunch program? Kids can come by after school until mom or dad picks them up? Tutoring or basketball leagues? Just what part of the parenthood portfolio do they help with?

Mostly I think they are Anti–Parenthood. Come on, let the babies live.
