I'd like to make this appeal to anyone and especially to those who claim to be a Christian of any persuasion, whether Catholic or Protestant. Before you vote for president or any candidate in November, ask yourself if you put politics ahead of your moral convictions, especially concerning the sanctity of life.
It's time to stop playing word games, as science shows that abortion is the killing of a developing human being in the womb, not the killing of a choice. The most amazing and miraculous creation in all of existence is the human being, patterned after the likeness of God Himself. All the issues we face today in our politically charged world don't mean a thing to the 56 million-plus dead babies that have been snuffed out over the past 40 some years due to reckless abortions — nor do today's issues mean anything to the potential 200 million offspring or so that might have come from those already aborted.
Maybe you think there is no impact on society, family and country by aborting so many of our countrymen for an entire generation, but I think the impact is profound and shameful.
Everything in life works around cause and effect. If I left a leaking faucet leak continuously on the second floor of my house, then the effect will eventually be the collapse of my floor or severe wood rot at the very least. Due to the effects of abortion, how many skilled and unskilled laborers, professionals or non-professionals, athletes, musicians, artists, entertainers, public servants, siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles, parents, grandparents and so forth, have we lost?
I can't even imagine the stench that the rot of abortion in today's society gives off to God. Everyone reading this letter was once 5 weeks old, 12 weeks old, then 20 weeks old and eventually born.
So when you cast your vote, ask yourself if you're willing to stand in line behind the candidate of your choice the day we meet our maker in heaven; because if you can't, then it might be time to line up behind a candidate closer to your moral convictions.
Life starts with God's sanctions and then comes politics, not the other way around.
