Sanctity of Human Life

Today marks the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court decisions of Roe vs. Wade and Doe vs. Bolton which made abortion legal during any point in pregnancy and for any reason. Since the legalization of abortion over 55 million unborn children have died. According to National Right to Life, each year abortion takes the lives of 1.2 million unborn babies. These statistics are sobering.

So, what are we doing about it? And I’m not talking about just being against abortion. Or just speaking out about abortion. If we claim to value human life – that it is sacred, valuable and precious – do our actions confirm it?

I feel like it can’t be just about the unborn child – it has to span the whole life continuum. Are we willing to partner with woman who choose to parent – supporting them emotionally, physically and financially? Are we willing to adopt children whose parents choose to make an adoption plan? Are we willing to join with families who are struggling to maintain a safe home environment for their children? Are we willing to come along side those who are struggling with addiction? Those who are homeless? Those who feel like there’s not a reason to live? Are we willing to provide care for the elderly and treat them with dignity?

If we value the life of the unborn child we have to value their life outside the womb. What actions are we willing to take?

    We just returned home from the funeral home;
    For whom? My great neice’s baby a week before
    he was due. When I looked at that precious little
    fellow in that tiny casket, and held the parents close
    to my heart, I wondered how others could abort such as this.
    Maybe if young people and others experienced this they’d have second thoughts. This little family would love to have their son to play with his big brother. GOD knows HIS plan, not us, but we do need to furnish more love and concern for these unborn precious little ones.

    Wow! Very thought provoking and challenging. We must also consider those who are enslaved through trafficing.
