A Matter of Life and Death

By Angela Wittman Dear Friends, Have you been spending countless hours writing letters to your "pro-life" senators and congressmen asking them to vote pro-life?

Do I have your attention? Good. Now, please hear me out. I recently read the report HIV/AIDS among African Americans/AIDS in 2003 written by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) which documents cases of HIV/AIDS among African Americans. The report begins with this startling statement: The HIV/AIDS epidemic is a health crisis for African Americans. In 2001, HIV/AIDS was among the top 3 causes of death for African American men aged 25–54 years and among the top 4 causes of death for African American women aged 20–54 years. It was the number 1 cause of death for African American women aged 25–34 years[ 1 ]. The CDC then gives these statistics in the same report: According to the 2000 Census, Afric
