We are speaking out on behalf of thousands of leaders and millions of evangelicals in the pro-life community. Not since the infamous Roe vs. Wade (1973) has a more serious threat to U.S. pregnant women and their unborn children existed – that of mercury and other heavy metal toxins emitted by coal combustion.
Approximately one in every six babies in the U.S. are born with harmful mercury levels in their blood.
As Christians, we are called by our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ, to protect those who are knit in their mothers’ womb, love our neighbors and do unto others as we would have them do unto us. We are thereby called to protect our most vulnerable populations, especially unborn children.
