Our May 7th blogpost, “How much is a human life worth,” generated some pushback with this response: “You hit the nail on the head when you called the fetuses “unborn humans.” Until they are born, they are not humans, but potential humans.

I sincerely believe you will enjoy these films. Let me know your favorites.Read More
