The unborn are the only class of people in the United States who are denied their unalienable right to life. Abortion is not about women’s health care; it is not about reproductive rights. Abortion is a violation of the civil rights of more than one million human persons every year. The Pro-Life Freedom Rides connect the civil rights movement of the 1960s to the civil rights movement for the unborn today.
