Sad anniversaries

Today is the anniversary of two illegal abortion deaths, but I'll not give the details today, because to their families, they were only missing. One woman's fate was known only to her abortionist and his accomplices. The other's fate was known to her abortionist, his accomplice, and her boyfriend, who had arranged the abortion. The boyfriend was an accomplice not only in the fatal abortion, but in the attempt to cover up what had happened.

I know this is a dismal topic for Christmas Eve, but that's reality. On the eve of the celebration of Jesus's birth, we must remember that abortion was still devastating families, and will continue to devastate families until we learn to universally regard children as a blessing, not as a punishment.
