Abortion advocates… know perfectly well that abortion is the taking of a human life. There is no doubt on that question. And that’s the big divide, and those are the two cultures competing for you. And you have to choose. It would be lovely if you didn’t have to choose, but you do. You have to choose whether you are going to take the stand that, no matter how serious the problems, no matter how burdensome, no matter how problematic, we will not take innocent human life to solve problems. The other side says, ‘Yeah we may not like [abortion]. We wish it wouldn’t happen. But, under some circumstances, we take human life to solve problems.’ That’s the Culture of Life and the Culture of Death. And you live in a country where 4,000 innocent human lives are being killed by abortion every day. So merely by doing nothing, you are, in fact, sort of taking a side. You’re saying ‘Oh, I wish that weren’t happening. I don’t like it. I wouldn’t have an abortion myself. But isn’t it too bad – four thousand innocent human lives are snuffed out every day in my country.’

Ruth Pakaluk, from a talk given in 1997 (via abolishabortion)
