No right to kill the unborn


To the Editor:

We human beings seem to have forgotten that God is God! We also have forgotten that his Ten Commandments were not mere suggestions but his “commands.” The fifth Commandment states, “Though shalt not kill,” which means that innocent babies in the womb to the elderly and infirm and all people in between should be protected.

No one has the right to kill babies in the womb — not surgically nor by abortion, including pills dispersed personally or through telemedicine. Not only do the babies die, some mothers die as well. No earthly being, whether he or she is a doctor, a lawyer, a politician or judge in a courtroom can change God’s laws!

One day we will each stand before God to answer for our actions here on earth.
