Letter to the editor: Most innocent among us are worth protecting

By JENIFER HUNTER | Norwalk

People both young and old are told that the most innocent humans among us are disposable, not worth protecting and able to be killed at will. Then we scratch our heads and wonder why violence is so rampant and there are so many in society with little regard for life. 

Abortion is labeled as a woman’s right to decide about her own body when it’s actually not her body. From conception, it is a totally new human being with its own DNA. At just five weeks of development, the heart begins to beat and the circulatory system begins to form. Six weeks, the nose, mouth and ears start to take shape; jump to eight weeks, there are breathing tubes, lung forming, and the baby starts moving around. Twelve weeks pass, and tiny fingers and toes can open and close and their mouth will begin to make sucking motions. That’s just in the first trimester. A true miracle in the making. 

Abortion is labeled as part of reproductive health, yet it doesn’t reproduce and certainly isn’t healthy for the baby and can have long-term detrimental effects both emotionally and physically for the woman. It’s called Planned Parenthood (the largest provider of abortions in the U.S.), but with 60 million legal abortions reported in the U.S. alone since 1973, planning doesn’t seem to be working well. 

The overturning of Roe v. Wade took abortion laws from the federal government and put it into the hands of the states. It did not put an end to abortion. There are now seven states where abortion can be performed at up to 15–20 weeks of a baby’s development; four states, 24 weeks; 15 states, up to viability (the potential of a baby surviving birth when supported by up-to-date medicine); and seven states where abortion has NO LIMIT!

Adoption in the U.S. can cost from $8,000 to $45,000. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says that reports from the Child Welfare Information Gateway lists the average cost as being between $20,000 and $45,000. 

Are not tiny, innocent, helpless humans more important than potholes, electric vehicles, government-funded, gender-altering surgeries and teaching our boys that they aren’t males and our girls that they aren’t females?

God heard the blood of Able cry out from the ground; imagine what the blood of over 60 million sounds like. We ask God to bless America, and He has greatly. We also should be repenting and asking for His great forgiveness and mercy. Please help to consider life.
