Time Capsule 2000: The Sanctity Of Life

I recently came across a copy of a letter I wrote nearly
twenty years ago to a local newspaper in which I voiced
my concern about the persistent devaluation of human life.

What I wrote about then has sadly become a
reflection of the times we are living in today.


To The Editor:

   In response to the recent letter,  "Pro-Life Politicians" as a woman, wife, mother, and independent voter,
I will always vote in favor of protecting unborn human life.
   There is something terribly wrong when the Supreme Court of the United States declares that a ban against partial-birth abortion is unconstitutional. Could there be more to this alarming response from the nation's highest court than meets the public's eye?
   Human cloning use to be mere science-fiction fantasy.  It is now reality.  Suppose that during a partial-birth procedure, pieces of the infant's brain tissue are being extracted and sold to the highest bidder for experimental scientific research. Perhaps viable organs are also harvested and sold for unlawful medical testing.  It might explain why this horrific procedure, although concluded to be, "never medically necessary to protect a woman's health" by the Physicians Ad-Hoc Coalition for Truth (PHAFT), as well as former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, is being so strongly and inexplicably advocated in this country.
   Has our society become so besotted with economic prosperity and living beyond our means that we have willingly traded our compassion for compromise regarding the sanctity of life?
   I believe that the time is now for strong pro-life leadership. We need a president who is not afraid to stand up for the rights of the unborn future citizens of America.  After eight disgusting years of pro-abortion policy from the Clinton-Gore Administration, our nation has turned into a vast killing field. The abortion mills are running at full speed and the baby killers of America are getting richer.
   There is a wise old saying which states, "Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it."  During the Second World War, babies arriving at the notorious Auschwitz death camp were ripped from their mothers' arms and put to death immediately, deemed "unfit to live" by their Nazi murderers.
The infamous Dr. Josef Mengele, known as the evil "Angel of Death" performed hideously unspeakable "experiments" on innocent people, including helpless infants.
   Is this where we are heading, America?  Can anyone besides myself see the strikingly familiar parallels between then and now?

"You shall not commit murder."
Exodus 20:13

"As you know not what is the way of the wind,
or how the spirit comes to the bones in the womb
of a pregnant woman, even so you know not
the work of God, Who does all."
Ecclesiastes 11:5

Baby Mine

Baby mine, don't you cry
Baby mine, dry your eyes
Rest your head close to my heart
Never to part
Baby of mine

Little one when you play
Pay no heed to what they say
Let your eyes sparkle and shine
Never a tear
Baby of mine

If they knew all about you
They'd end up loving you too
All those same people who scold you
What they'd give just for the right to hold you

From your head down to your toes
You're not much, goodness knows
But you're so precious to me
Sweet as can be
Baby of mine

"...therefore, you shall choose life in order that you may live."

 “Listen closely, I have set before you today
 life and prosperity (good), and death and adversity (evil); 
 in that I command you today
 to love the Lord your God,
 to walk [that is, to live each and every day]
 in His ways and to keep His commandments
 and His statutes and His judgments (precepts),
 so that you will live and multiply,
 and that the Lord your God will bless you
 in the land which you are entering to possess.  
 But if your heart turns away
 and you will not hear and obey
 but are drawn away and worship other gods and serve them,   
I declare to you today that you will certainly perish.
 You will not live long in the land 
which you cross the Jordan to enter and possess. 
  I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you today,
 that I have set before you life and death,
 the blessing and the curse; 
therefore, you shall choose life in order that you may live,
 you and your descendants,  by loving the Lord your God,
 by obeying His voice, and by holding closely to Him;
 for He is your life [your good life, 
your abundant life, your fulfillment]
 and the length of your days, that you may live in the land
 which the Lord promised (swore) to give to your fathers, 
to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”
Deuteronomy 30:15-20

  America The Choice Is Yours
Choose Life
