"The abortion lobby, for a very long time, has tried to silo abortion by characterizing it as just a religious issue, just a theological difference of opinion. When what we're really talking about is violence, lethal violence, against a flesh-and-blood human being. And you don't have to be religious to recognize that."
So said Secular Pro-Life president Kelsey Hazzard during a recent interview on a Denver-based Catholic radio show. The interview covered the secular case for life and related topics, especially Colorado's upcoming referendum (Proposition 115) against late-term abortions. If recent events have you down about the presidential election, you certainly are not alone; don't forget about referenda and down-ballot races!
