To the Editor:

[Some] very recent statistics reveal that in the United States 51 percent hold the pro-life position, while 46 percent the pro-choice position; 23 percent believe abortion should never be an option, while 22 percent favor abortion for any and all reasons.

Can it be that the pro-life message is finally prevailing?

Yes.

With advanced technologies, such as ultrasound imaging and with fetal development education, we are starting to see "hope and change we can believe in."

Please come and join us Oct. 4 from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m., rain or shine, on the New Milford Village Green for the 19th annual Life Chain.

We will supply signs that read "abortion kills children," "abortion hurts women," and "adoption--the loving option," and more.

We will pray that with God's help, we will be able to save some babies and their mothers.

As our president says, "yes we can."
