To the Editor:

When I was married to my first husband, he did not want any more children. We had three at the time. I became pregnant again with the fourth child.

It was the year they passed the law that it was legal, in 1973, to kill babies. He said I had better get an abortion.

I was so young at the time, and he was extremely violent. There were no advocates at the time, when families were threatened, to go to for safety.

I begged him to “let me have this baby,” and if he did I would get my tubes tied. I did, and I am so grateful I had the baby.

Today, it is no big deal to murder babies. It also includes selling baby parts to various agencies after a torturous murder. They also call a baby fetus a glob of tissue.

God created baby human beings between one man and one woman. It starts at conception. So, why do we think we have the right to murder God’s creation?

In Yahweh’s (God’s) Holy Word, Isaiah 44:2 says, “I am your Creator. You were in my care before you were born, and I know the plans I have for your life.”
