"Heartbeat" :60

SFX: Faint heartbeat under and throughout

ANNCR: Hear that? It's the heartbeat of an infant in the womb at six months

His heart's beating at about 140 beats per minute. If he were born right now, his chances of survival would be greater than 50%.

But even today, his mother could choose to have an abortion.

The law says it's her choice.

Each year, more than 18,000 babies who are already in the 5th month of pregnancy are aborted. And it's legal.

Roe vs. Wade says you can choose to have an abortion for virtually any reason, at any time, right up through the 9th month.

It's been over 30 years since Roe vs. Wade, and now one in every four pregnancies ends in abortion.

SFX: Heartbeat stops.
