Taking another human’s life is murder

To the editor:

The decision from the Supreme Court on June 24 to nullify the ruling of Roe v Wade, was a huge victory! The Supreme Court’s decision in 1973 was not Constitutional. The judicial branch cannot pass laws; Congress does.

Pregnancy is not an illness or a women’s choice issue, it is a right-to-life issue. If we believe in science, as we were instructed to do during COVID, then we know that life begins at conception, when the sperm fertilizes the egg. That new life is created in the image and likeness of God. As a citizen of the United States, we have been given unalienable rights through the Constitution of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

The Sixth Amendment of the Constitution confirms the accused shall be afforded a trial by jury. The Eighth Amendment states no cruel and unusual punishment shall be inflicted. In abortion, the innocent baby, is not afforded any of it’s rights. No trial, no jury and is sent straight to the death chamber.

It was imperative the Supreme Court reverse this evil and unthinkable crime on humanity, after almost 50 years and nearly 64,000,000 lives lost to abortion. Taking another human’s life is murder. Period.

In May, the mother of three young children who were found dead at their Los Angeles home was charged with murder. Also, in Red Wing, Minnesota, a woman was charged with murder for leaving her newborn son to die beside a lake nearly 20 years ago and abandoned another infant in the Minnesota River years earlier. We reap what they sow.

We are living in a no-respect-for-life society. After the riots of 2020, with businesses, police cars, precincts, and churches set on fire, school and street killings, including police officers in Democrat-governed states, and police were told to stand down. Cries of “defund the police” filled the air. Is it any wonder the crime rate has risen 40% since Joe Biden took office?

Since the Supreme Court’s decision, our prayers are being answered! Even Biden spoke out and gave credit to Trump for placing three pro-life judges on the Supreme Court: Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett.

The struggle for faith, family and freedom in our country will continue, because Satan does not give up easily. Parents should be held responsible for educating their children, along with our Christian communities, including our church leaders, in teaching God’s commandments. We must conquer the force of evil and regain good morals and strong family values. With hope, prayer and trust in God, there will be no more killing of our innocent babies.
