Recently, I was asked to work on a project about abortion. I hadn’t really put too much thought or attention to this subject before. Nor had I considered the methods of abortion, the impact of this practice throughout the world, the effects it has on a mother or the pain the fetus feels. Never could I imagine that a business would exist to broker in the collecting and selling of fetal parts. The more I studied the more disgusted I became. Without a doubt I am Pro-Life. My heart aches for those little babies that aren’t even given a chance at life.
More than 150 years ago, the good people who helped their fellow men in bondage escape slavery, would be prosecuted if caught. Around 70 years ago in Europe, the good people who helped Jews escape capture from the Nazi regime and almost certain death in concentration camps, would, if caught, be prosecuted and likely sent to a concentration camp themselves. The law in both these circumstances protected the oppressors and punished those who fought that oppression
We are right in the middle of the Presidential primaries. The American people have a lot of decisions to make. We have to decide what issues are the most important to us. Trying to find a candidate who totally aligns with all of our views is hard. We may have to give up a few to keep the more important ones. And there is no shortage of issues facing Americans. Unemployment rates, the economy, foreign affairs, health care, abortion, human rights, Planned Parenthood, religious liberties, the second amendment, illegal immigration, ISIS, and the list goes on and on. All of these are important issues that affect the lives of American’s every day. However, some of the issues that we face do not directly affect us. In fact some don’t affect us at all.
