To the editor:
The degradation of a nation happens when a majority of the population becomes comfortable and uncaring about the atrocities, which have invaded our country, including legal abortion. Most people have accepted abortion as the norm of everyday life. We must become more compassionate toward the unborn but we have become unsympathetic toward their demise. People seem more interested about who won the football game on Sunday afternoon than the above-mentioned statement.
Since Jan. 22, 1973, 60 million babies have lost their privilege to live because of a decision by the Supreme Court to legalize abortion. Open your Bible to these passages: Proverbs 6:16-17, Jeremiah 1:4-5.
I agree that abortion is necessary if the mother’s life is in danger. This would be between her and her physician, not some second-rate doctor at an abortion clinic.
Wouldn’t it be great if our elected officials in Washington D.C. would take action and rescind legal abortion and replace it with an adoption policy? Let’s turn the abortion clinics into adoption agencies. It would be possible if all of us, especially Christians, teamed up and voted for pro-life candidates. Most Republicans and a few Democrat candidates are for a pro-life agenda.
There are thousands of couples who are unable to have children of their own. They would do anything to hold a newborn baby in their arms. This can be possible if we all take action and vote for pro-life candidates. Let’s give these precious, beautiful children a chance at life.
