Guilty as Charged

If you were accused of being pro-life would there be enough evidence to convict you?  If you were accused of being indifferent as thousands of babies are killed every day in your country, would there be enough evidence to convict you? These are interesting questions and food for thought.  The actions we choose not to take and the words we choose not to speak often have a greater impact on the world than our conscious words and deeds.  Saying or doing nothing as our society allows its innocent children to be killed in the womb implies endorsement of the practice.  Knowing that organizations like Planned Parenthood are preying on innocent, defenseless children, and failing to protect the weakest among us, is tantamount to participating in the slaughter.

These are my opinions and mine alone, and anyone disagreeing with me is free to do so, since an undeniable tenet of being alive is the ability to exercise your free will.  The free will we all treasure is one thing a baby in the womb cannot express.  It necessarily depends entirely on others for its very existence, and will continue to do so for years after its birth; if it is allowed to be born.  When we allow an unborn child, a fellow human being, to be killed for a fee, we set into motion a series of consequences that will follow us for eternity.  When we deny that an unborn child is a living human being we deny an undeniable truth.

If we look inward, we can see the truth.  We can see a world where every human being is allowed to express their God-given right to life.  We can visualize a world that no longer kills its unborn children and a world where Planned Parenthood is a concept, not an organization that kills hundreds of thousands of children every year.  I can see a world like this in my lifetime and look forward to my grandsons growing up in such a world.  If we can imagine it we can create it.  Imagine a world where every human being serves a sentence of life.

I plead guilty as charged to anyone accusing me of being pro-life.  I will serve any sentence imposed upon me for my beliefs and will not question any evidence used against me.  I will not appeal my conviction nor will I recant my testimony on behalf of the world’s children.  I’ve gotten a lot of things wrong in my life; as a matter of fact the only thing I’m absolutely sure I’ve gotten right is my stance on the side of life.  If there are consequences attached to my beliefs, so be it.  Once again, I plead guilty as charged.
