Rhode Island Lost a Good Man

Last Tuesday the world lost pro-life advocate Christopher F. Young of Rhode Island in a sudden vehicle accident. Rhode Island was lucky to have this man as an advocate for all unborn children. May God bless his widow and young daughter in the days ahead.

The world needs more men like Mr. Young to stand up and speak for unborn children, and not lawmakers who are only looking to promote their own agendas.

Christopher F. Young, 51, of Narragansett, died just hours after urging state lawmakers to pass heartbeat legislation to protect unborn babies.

On Wednesday, his wife, Kara, said he appeared to have had a heart attack while driving home from the state capital. Stress concerning this issue for him was great.

“It was a medical event that happened while he was driving on the highway (most likely a heart attack), when we were coming home after we all testified in favor of the fetal heartbeat bill at the Rhode Island State House,” Kara Young wrote on Facebook.

Mr. Young’s last act in life was to urge lawmakers to protect unborn babies from abortion.

On Tuesday, right before the fatal crash that claimed his life, Young asked the state House Judiciary Committee to pass a resolution “recognizing the fetus as a human life upon the existence of a heartbeat,” the report states.

“When will we realize we will suffer a judgment
these babies to be tortured, allowing these babies to be murdered, denying the humanity of these babies?” Young told lawmakers. “God will judge you much more harshly if you do not let the entire House and Senate vote.”

His wife said she believes his passion took a toll on his health.
