“The death of one man is a tragedy, the death of millions is a statistic.” Joseph Stalin
The juggernaut communist leader can aptly be described as a moral monster by historians for his despotic and brutal regime that killed 43 million people. Stalin had an acute awareness of human behavior as it faced mind-numbing amounts of casualties. Humans become desensitized by compartmentalized data. The overwhelming numbers suppress our emotions and personal connections to the real lives lost.
Therefore, to prevent the conscience of our culture from growing distant and emotionally unmoved by the tragic deaths of nearly 62 million people that have been aborted since the catastrophic decision in Roe v. Wade, the pro-life movement gathers across the country to march for life. This past Wednesday in Trenton, we gathered with many pro-life activists and legislators at the NJ Rally for Life organized by our pro-life partner, NJ Right to Life.
The civil rights leader, Martin Luther King Jr., also remembered this week, has said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
In NJ, preborn children and at-risk women lack safety and security under state law. Women are not protected by informed consent laws when faced with the difficult and dangerous decision of abortion. Children in the womb are not afforded equal rights of protection even when viable during the late stages of pregnancy. Governor Murphy has stated publicly his intention of perpetrating further injustice against the unborn, despite NJ already having abortion laws like those in North Korea and China.
Family Policy Alliance of New Jersey® will continue working with our pro-life coalition partners across the state to end abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy through the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and guarantee medical services for children who survive an abortion through the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. Our long-term goal is to see life cherished in NJ from conception to natural death.
Friend, when there are many victims, it is easier to look the other way. Don’t allow human psychology to cripple your advocacy for the cause of life.
Women and children are not statistics.
