Value of life

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

In the past six weeks we have been deluged by news accounts of multiple murders and suicides. Fathers killing whole families, mothers killing their children, brothers killing sisters, children being tossed from bridges or purposely driven into lakes and rivers to drown.

In asking why such a surge in these killings has taken place we need only to look back 47 years to the Roe v. Wade decision which legalized abortion. It negated human life. A life is not important so get rid of it if you choose.

We are very fortunate in Spirit Lake to have Cherish House which values life over abortion. Please support such a wonderful project.
