Mick Rich: Sees abortion as a divisive tragedy that must be stopped

The right to life is the civil rights issue of our time. We must protect the unborn and their mothers, the elderly, people with disabilities and terminal diseases, and other rejected and threatened members of society. Mick believes that life begins at conception, and that abortion harms everyone touched by it. It rips the moral fabric of our nation. We must end this divisive national tragedy as soon as possible, so that once again, America can serve as a beacon of human rights around the world.
