Your view: Don’t turn a blind eye to abortion

January 2nd, 2018 8:03 pm

I was born in 1939.

Naturally I do not recall any memories of WWII. I can remember, in my very young years, however, questioning, wondering and unable to understand how the Germans and all others near the crematoriums and horrible death camps did not know — did not respond — that more than 6 million humans were tortured, starved and killed.

“They did not know” I was told. Even at 6 that did not make sense. Then I learned the truth: They did not see because they did not wish to.

But today at 78, I am confronted with the same problem. More than 6o million totally innocent, totally unable to defend themselves little babies in our country have been killed since Roe v. Wade as they mature in their mother’s wombs.

Do we convince ourselves they do not suffer? Dr. Bernard Nathanson performed more than 6,000 abortions until he watched in a simple test a child suffering as it was dismembered and sucked from its mothers womb. The remainder of his life was spent trying to make us see.

There is truly no difference between a child in the womb and a human of any age. It is only a matter of maturation.

We know that now, but pretend we do not.

This year take the time to watch the March for Life on TV. You will see more loving, more gentle, more God-fearing people than you will never see – in the cold and by the thousands – from all over the country and the globe.
