If the possibility of suffering is the foundation upon which is built the philosophy of so-called "merciful" abortion and euthanasia, then not one of us is safe from those wielding that bloody sword. Even those wielding it must one day face another wielding it in their direction. Cherry Bieber

February 1997 - Quote from Mother Teresa at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington attended by the President and the First Lady - "What is taking place in America is a war against the child. And if we accept that the mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?"



KJV Psalm 94:16-23 "Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity? Unless the Lord had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence. When I said, 'My foot slippeth;' Thy mercy, O Lord, held me up. In the multitude of my thoughts within me Thy comforts delight my soul. Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with Thee, which frameth mischief by a law? They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood. But the Lord is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge. And He shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the Lord our God shall cut them off."

"We do not stand any taller nor is there any work we do that is any greater than when we stand strong for the unborn child." Alabama State Senator Greg Reed

Why?

Below is something my husband posted last night with regard to Osama's death.  As I read some of the news articles and viewed the cheering crowds, I felt that my husband's statement definitely should be posted here, as my blog is about the sanctity of human life.  I remember reading, "A Tale of Two Cities," and being sickened by the way people "entertained" themselves with hangings, beheadings, and other such things.  All human life is created by God and, therefore, we should always be grieved at the loss of all human life, even when it is necessitated, such as in the case of mass murderers, etc.  I know in my heart that the death of a mass murderer means no more death at his hands and this is a good thing, but I still do not want to be seen yelling and rejoicing over it.  It seems to me that when we behave in such a manner, even at the death of brutal, cruel people; we only become just like them. 

In the above, I am drawn to the subjects of abortion and euthanasia, as I believe these practices make for very hardened hearts, such as those we have witnessed at so-called "pro-choice" rallies.  If we continue to rejoice over a woman's right to have her unborn child murdered and the practice of euthanasia, the value of all human life is increasingly at risk.  I again assert that conception and old age are the "bookends" of humanity with all the rest somewhere between them.  Take away value for these two, and all value for the rest will fade away.  This done, there is nothing to convince a mass murderer that his activities are evil.

My husband asks:

 Why do we look like them? I have no problem with the necessity of taking Osama's life but was sickened by the picture in the paper of a huge crowd celebrating. It was the same feeling I had watching film footage of Arab nations celebrating after the destruction of the twin towers. Justice ... can it be served without wallowing in the gutter? I'm as guilty of a vengeful heart as the next guy but this reminds of children sticking their tongues out at each other after inflicting their childish insults and injury. Is it not possible to rise above? God help us ... is there anyone else out there that sees this as wrong? Why do we look like them?

That is an excellent question that your husband asked.

I have one other question: When did so many people switch to being pro-capital punishment? I'm OK with it, but it seems like a ton of middle ground and even Liberal people switched overnight.
