America right now is dealing with two deadly diseases that target people on the margins of life.
The first one — COVID-19 — is in the headlines every day. It has consumed our attention for 18 months since it probably leaked from a Chinese communist lab in Wuhan.
The second — abortion on demand — is a disease of the heart. And sadly, it rarely makes headlines. We have been dealing with this since 1973 when the Supreme Court claimed it found a right to kill the unborn in the Constitution of the United States.
So far, over 600,000 Americans have died of COVID. A disproportionate number of them were elderly people and those with pre-existing conditions.
So far, abortion on demand in America has taken the lives of over 63 million unborn children.
On this very day, 500 people will sadly die of COVID; but abortion will claim a much larger toll of several thousand of our most defenseless children.
Thankfully, COVID does not kill 99 percent of people who contract it. But 99.9 percent of abortion victims die. It’s rare indeed for an unborn child to miraculously escape death from the abortionist’s knife.

We’re spending billions of dollars to fight COVID and to overcome the damage it’s doing to our society.
At the same time, we’re spending billions of dollars to subsidize abortion while pro-abortion politicians try to compel everybody to participate in the slaughter.
While we disagree on strategy, most of us understand the importance of fighting COVID. And — with God’s help — we’re well on our way to defeating it. Today, the new Delta strain of COVID appears to have already peaked in the “hot spots” of the last couple of weeks.
I pray that we will defeat abortion soon and that all of our children will someday be welcomed into the world and protected under the law.
But we remain deeply divided over whether the destruction of nearly a million unborn children a year is something to be stopped or celebrated.
American Values will continue to do everything we can to save our innocent unborn children.
