Unlike many "rights' now claimed, the right to life was one of the specifically enumerated ideals of our founding fathers. Sadly, it is also one of our rights most under attack. I believe it is the duty of government to protect its citizens, and especially the most vulnerable among us. This includes the unborn, the elderly and those with special needs. We are created by God and our laws should reflect the purposeful protection of life.
The issues surrounding abortion are highly emotional. We should strive to help anyone who is in the difficult situation of an unwanted pregnancy. Having volunteered at Birthright, a Christian pregnancy counseling center, I have seen the difficulties and sometimes desperation, women face when becoming pregnant. I have also seen that with prayer, guidance and a helping hand, miracles happen in the lives of those who choose life.
