Last week, many pro-life leaders from around the state were invited to attend an event to discuss legislation to save babies who have been aborted, yet survived. (L to R, Judy Sofka – “Missouri Precinct Project”, Me, Zina Hackworth – “This Race Will Self Destruct”, and Bev Ehlen- “Concerned Women for America”)
Sometimes it seems like our human race will self-destruct! I can hardly believe the debates going on about how we treat the unborn and the newly-born! Some people think technology is furthering our progress because we now have the ability to see the baby on an ultrasound and know so much more about fetal development. Yet, here we are watching some states push for unthinkable and horrific treatment of our most innocent youngsters. 19 states have legitimized the right to kill the baby up until the minute before he or she is born and some after the baby is born!
People used to claim they were confused about whether it was a baby or when it had a heartbeat or when the baby felt pain. Now, we have seen the humanity of babies and it’s far past time to confront this as blatant evil. We should have been past this discussion 45 years ago!
Shockingly, 19 states now allow infanticide. Even if a mom doesn’t want to raise her baby, there is no medical reason to kill the baby. Attempts at late-term abortions have resulted in premature births. When this happens, the doctor should be prosecuted for malpractice having caused a deliberate premature birth at enormous medical and physical cost. There is no reasonthe baby should have to suffer or die just because the mother doesn’t want to raise him or her. It is never acceptable to kill people we don’t like!
