Draunfels Crisis Pregnancy Center emphasizing the need for continued and upscaled support of the local program and ones like it across the nation Im encouraged though and Ill tell you he said The other world view has finally and completely run out of gas After 30 years of broken promises we find ourselves in an age where one out of four babies are bom to single mothers I get kidded about growing up in the 50s and am told that that was my decade I get kidded about growing up with Ozzie and Harriet a lot but I tell them Ill defend Ozzie and Harriet if youll defend Bevis and Butthead Im bullish on America God is not through with this he said Thomas spoke out on abortion and todays morality but also linked them together Abortion is not the cause of he said It is the result of it There is a great social movement going on rightnow to overturn Roe v he said ItisrmyobseivationthatgreatmQvements take time such as the movement to free slaves and4ateffor women to gain the right to vote I dont know where we are right now on the grand scale of things But well get there in Thomas criticized proabortion activists the abortion industry and the federal govern ment for not providing information to women considering abortion He cited federal man dates requiring certain information and docu mentation for vehicle purchases and bank loans and noted that no mandate is in place requiring that information be provided to women considering abortion Thomas said he once challenged a former director of NOW National Organization of promising to never again address the subject of abortion if she would support the idea of supplying women who are consider ing abortion with information on abortion and show them a picture of what they are about to Why cant we give he said There is truth in labeling There is certain information required to be on a sales sticker on a car to inform potential buyers about the vehicle they are considering to buy Why cant we provide women with information about abortion They arent being given a choice at I saw an ad in the New York Times the other day supporting he contin ued Did you know the price of that ad was around That was for one ad on one day Where do you think theyre getting their money Do you think theyre having gather ings like this across the nation There are no testimonies from women saying how won derful abortion is They
