Memorial Day

Here are interesting statistics from our local paper today.

Kenneth Kogut of Concord writes a letter to the editor referring to the 1,191,000 US soldiers who gave their lives in all of our wars and are remembered this Memorial Day.

But there is a monument in the Concord-Walnut Creek area which reads:

“In memory of the Women and Children Killed by Legal Abortion in the United States since Abortion was Legalized in 1973”:

56,000 in Concord
2,7000,000 in the Bay Area
13,000,000 in the California
56,000,000 in the United States.

If you were born during or after 1973, you should be especially pleased with this memorial, because your name isn’t on it.
