Vote to uphold sanctity of all human life Print

To the editor:

For 40 years, the grim reality of abortion has hidden in the shadows of euphemisms and double-speak. As such, we can walk into the voting booth and forget the horrible damage caused by abortion: damage, first and foremost to the baby, but also damage to the mental, emotional, and spiritual health of the mom.

How important is the sanctity of each human life? St. John Paul II tells us, “truly great must be the value of human life if the Son of God has taken it up and made it the instrument of the salvation of all humanity!” (from The Gospel of Life)

If God himself has ordained human life to such a high level, should we not vote in a manner to uphold the sanctity of all human life? In the governor’s race, there is a clear difference.

Please vote pro-life. I believe Jesus would have.
