We have selected some which we think are particularly informative, have beautiful inspirational graphics, offer interesting viewpoints, or which for some other reason are thought-worthy. We have, of course, no control over their content or method of presentation. Our selection cannot possibly substitute for your thought-filled consideration of the material in each site.

AbortionTV (www.AbortionTV.com) Neat, well organized. Their definition of pro-choice: "We think the victim (baby) should choose whether to live or die.

With this essay, I hope to encourage our pro-life side. I also hope to change some who are straddling the fence on this issue. I am a CPA from Houston. In January, my pastor spoke a few words about abortion on Sanctity of Life Sunday. This inspired me write this essay. I actually wrote it during my lunch hours over the next month and a half.
