Prayers for the family and friends of those killed and injured in the shooting at the Colorado Springs planned parenthood. May God grant them peace and comfort during this difficult time.
As horrible and evil as the act of abortion is, the taking of lives in never justified. Abortion will never be stopped through violence. We must continue to work though the political process to elect individuals who will work to pass legislation to protect the rights of the unborn.
Although it is a slow process, we must stay vigilant in our effort to change the political landscape. States must continue to pass legislation to protect the unborn and we must all work to ensure that women are provided with the help and assistance needed to carry their babies to term.
This will not be quick and will not be easy. But we must not lose hope.
Science has progressed in the last 40 years to the point where only the most ardent supporters of abortion refuse to concede that the procedure is taking the life of innocent human life . Medical technology has progressed to where babies born premature can live. Sonograms and fetal monitoring shows that babies are alive and experience pain while be murdered in the name of choice.
We must all remember that most, if not all, of the people committing these acts of violence at abortion clinics are suffering from mental illness. Within 24 hours of these senseless deaths in Colorado Springs, the Governor of Colorado was calling it domestic terrorism, the Mayor was inferring that it was because of abortion and the Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains was using to promote their organization. The Planned Parenthood statement stated that ‘Extremists Creating a Poisonous Environment That Feeds Domestic Terrorism in This Country” even before all the facts were know and they even know if Planned Parenthood was the intended target.
The rhetoric needs to be toned down. The abortion industry and their supporters must resist the effort to politicize these acts of violence and further fan the flames in this highly emotional national debate.
