Sanctity of Life Newspaper Articles

Choose Life, A series of newspaper articles on the sanctity of life

by W.I. Smith, M.D.

In 1985, twelve years after the infamous Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion on demand in the United States, the editor of The Acadiana Catholic, Lafayette, Louisiana, invited Dr. W.I. Smith, M.D. to begin writing a series of columns on the sanctity of human life. These articles have been compiled in book form, hopefully in some semblance of chronological order. Written monthly at first, and bi-monthly in recent years, they reflect the ups and downs of the pro-life movement, and especially focus on all the sad ramifications of legal abortion, including physician assisted suicide, euthanasia, test-tube babies, surrogate motherhood, frozen embryos, etc. Permission is granted to anyone who would like to copy any or all of these articles without acknowledgment of authorship.
