As Dr. Jane Orient, a physician in private practice, and also the Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons writes: "The bills passed by the House and the Senate eliminate a vast array of choices that many Americans prefer, such as low-cost insurance. But the most precious choice they destroy is the right to choose life: the right to choose not to support abortion in any way. Not financially, with taxes or premiums. And not by providing hands, facilities, referrals, prescriptions, or permission to perform or enable this "procedure."

Democrats are pushing us in a perverse direction. They want to deny our personal freedoms while expanding our capability to murder our unborn children.

When Barack Obama read his Roe v. Wade declaration last January, his approval ratings stood at 70 percent. Today they are barely 50 percent. A new CNN poll shows 48 percent saying that Obama's first year was a failure, 47 percent saying it was a success.

Obama is presiding over a deeply divided nation. As Lincoln said, "A House divided against itself cannot stand."

Americans have choices to make.

On this week of the March for Life, let's recall the words of Deuteronomy: ".....I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live."
