Baby in womb is precious life
I received an email from Students for Life of America reminding me that “Sunday will mark the 39th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton Supreme Court decisions which legalized abortion. ... It also will begin the 40th full year of legal abortion.”
The pro-life march on Washington is attended by hundreds of thousands, though underreported by the media. It is very important that we keep telling women and men that a baby in the womb is precious life and should not be killed for someone’s convenience or profit.
After many years of reflection and asking God, I think I have gained some wisdom. It is “in your face” type of reasoning. We have the wrong victim! The woman is not the victim! The baby aborted is the victim! When a woman seeks an abortion, it is for her own self interests, and in the end, it is the woman who makes the decision to hire an abortionist.
The heart of the matter is the woman’s heart. When all is said and done, with sex education, contraception, and showing all the facts about abortion, the woman still must change her heart before she can see the truth.
King’s vision not to silence schools
I would like to express my distaste and dissatisfaction with the school system that we have in this country.
It is shameful to witness every year the apathy and lack of interest on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, where children are forced to stay home. Shouldn’t we encourage schools to be in session so that kids see the importance of this man’s vision? Shouldn’t we learn about the struggle for civil rights that our parents and grandparents experienced?
Though this subject should be taught throughout the year, it is imperative that we celebrate this day with our fellow classmates and teachers.
If young African-Americans in the ’50s and ’60s were forced to drink from a separate fountain, sit behind whites and be brutally attacked with no penalty, are children today not mature enough to examine and discuss what happened to these children during the civil rights struggle?
Martin Luther King Jr. preached, “Our lives begin to end the day we decide to become silent about things that matter.”
It is disheartening to witness that on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, all the classrooms in America have indeed become silent.
