On Monday, January 21, 2013, we celebrated the life and accomplishments of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King dedicated his life to God and to the belief we are all created equal. He promoted through love, and peaceful demonstration, the understanding a person of any race should be judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. The world owes a debt of gratitude for all he did to help usher in a new era of equality in America. It is in this same spirit of equality, the same belief we were all created equal, in that I hope and pray that one we as a society will recognize the tragedy unfolding before us on a daily basis - the death of the innocent unborn child. Tens of millions of unborn lives have been snuffed out in the last 40 years and this practice has no part in a civil society. Please join me in an effort to end this barbaric practice. We have all been created equal and deserve equal protection under the law.
