Defend sanctity of life

The Spokesman-Review

This week marks 36 years of legalized abortion in our land. The cry of the supposed “human rights” liberals is empty and hollow when we consider the 35 million abortion/deaths who were torn and ripped apart in the womb?

The last proclamation of the outgoing president was to declare Sunday, Jan. 18, Sanctity of Human Life Day, part of which stated, “All human life is a gift from our Creator that is sacred, unique, and worthy of protection. … The most basic duty of government is to protect the life of the innocent.”

The incoming president has said he wants to usher in a new declaration of independence and that will include promoting abortion/death, along with the sodomite agenda.

Death and abominations do not lead to independence but to more of what they are. It is my hope that we could not only have a Sanctity of Life Day, but it would be the way of life, for every day in our land.

It is good to heed the words of Thomas Jefferson: “Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; (and) that His justice cannot sleep forever.”
