Letter to the Editor - Fight for Life

An Open Letter to Republicans:

For the last four years we have had a Republican Senate, House, and President. The party of "Life" has controlled our country for four years. I challenge you now to live up to that motto. Since 1993 the Infant Mortality rate in the United States had steadily declined, throughout the Clinton years. Since Republicans have gained control, that number has begun to rise again. That number represents living infants versus dead infants and it is rising. The United States ranks 40th in the world in Infant Mortality. That means 39 other countries do a better job of keeping infants alive than we do - that is a crime against innocents. So, I challenge you to truly be the party of Life and not just the "pro-Birth" party that many believe you to be.
