On God’s Existence

“Men are not flattered by being shown that there has been a difference of purpose between the Almighty and them. To deny it, however, in this case, is to deny that there is a God governing the world.” -Abraham Lincoln, March 15, 1865.

God is the Source of America’s Blessings

“No human counsel hath devised, nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things [blessings]. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy.” -Abraham Lincoln, October 3, 1863

“[T]here’s one individual who’s not being considered at all. That’s the one who is being aborted. And I’ve noticed that everybody that is for abortion has already been born.” -Ronald Reagan, September 21, 1980.

No Longer Can Abortion Advocates Deny Reality.

RonaldReagan_abortionreality

“No longer can advocates of abortion deny reality: Abortion is not merely a matter between a woman and her doctor. For when they say that, surely they are forgetting the unborn child whose very life hangs in the balance.” -Ronald Reagan, September 11, 1985.

The Policy of Abortion On Demand Will Be Reversed.
