To the Editor:
Since the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in America, about 42 million killings of the unborn have taken place. It is interesting that Norma McCorvey, the "Roe," is campaigning to halt legalized abortion.
Human life begins at conception, and the unborn child is a living human being. Abortion constitutes the unjustified, unexcused taking of the life of the unborn child, who is the blameless victim. The Holy Bible states this truth in a number of places. Psalms 139:13,14, reads, "For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well."
The formation of human nature takes place at conception. We read in Jeremiah 1:5, "Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations."
Luke l:44 says, "For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy."
God says, "Thou shalt not kill." Exodus 20:13. However, the good news is that God's offer of forgiveness to the one who performs the abortion, and the woman who permits the abortion. "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
The sooner legal abortion ends in America, the better off America will be.
