In November 1870 pro-life feminist Sarah Norton harshly decried the “Tragedy — Social and Domestic” of infanticide and “the fast increasing crime of fœticide,” or abortion. Except for her flowery Victorian language you would think she was describing the situation today.
"[C]hild-murder is an easy and every-day affair…. [C]hild murderers practice their profession without let or hinderance, and open infant butcheries unquestioned, establishing themselves with an impunity that is not allowed to the slaughterers of cattle…. Scores of persons advertise their willingness to commit this form of murder, and with unblushing effrontery announce their names and residences in the daily papers. No one seems to be shocked by the fact…. [C]irculars are distributed broadcast, recommending certain pills and potions for the very purpose, and by these means the names of these slayers of infants, and the methods by which they practice their life-destroying trade, have become “familiar in our mouths as household words.
…Is there no remedy for all this ante-natal child murder? …Perhaps there will come a time when… an unmarried mother will not be despised because of her motherhood… and when the right of the unborn to be born will not be denied or interfered with."
Because of people like you who sacrifice for mothers and their unborn and born children THAT DAY IS COMING.
