Gloucester Daily Times Debate on Abortion (56), October 19, 1986

Our Tax Dollars Finance Murderers

In Nicaragua today both capital punishment and abortion are against the law. In a country that has experienced so much war, devastation and poverty, the Nicaraguan people affirm the value of human life, which they struggle to protect from the moment of conception.

The laws of Nicaragua view the death of an unborn child at the hands of an abortionist, and the death of an adult at the hands of a contra terrorist, as equally criminal.

In the United States of America, we have a lot to learn. Our tax dollars finance the contras that murder women and  children in Nicaragua while our tax dollars pay for abortions, financing murders of unborn children in this country. Our politicians denounce the Sandinista government as “undemocratic,” but how many Americans voted to spend tax dollars on slaughtering the innocent?
