Letters to the Editor

Faith and family

 I don’t want to be quick to be self-righteous, judgemental, selfish or blame anyone who dares to disagree with me. I want to hold on to the truth of God’s word - Jeremiah 1:5 - “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

In 1928, my mom and dad started their family of eight children, number eight born in 1950. I am so thankful our parents had their faith to keep them strong in some very hard times and the strength to do the hard work on a dry land farm. As a woman, our mom took her “profession” seriously, in other words not trivial. She knew to raise the eight from her womb it would take hard work and not be lazy, to feed clothe, educate. It took faith, family, friends, where pro-life still stands today. Thanks, mom Mayme.

Choose life

It saddens me so, to think there are people in the world that put their finances and careers over a human life. Abortion isn’t a convenience to end a pregnancy because it got in the way of your lifestyle. Abortion is the senseless killing of a human being. A little defenseless baby. 

If you think it’s OK to kill babies to make your life easier then why stop there? What happens when your life gets difficult when your kids are teenagers? Do you kill them to make your life easier? No, that’s ridiculous. Or how about your elderly parents? What if they can’t take care of themselves and there is no room in a care center? Do you kill them to make it easier on you? No, of course not.

There is eternity. And we have a choice where we spend it. Heaven or Hell.

I Choose Life. Heaven.
