Letter: Scripture forbids abortion

Scripture forbids abortion

To the Editor:

While watching TV tonight, my ire was raised, and I was driven to jot down this letter.

In the (b)light of recent events and the statements of the governors of New York and Virginia, where are those great “moralists” who proclaim the “immorality” of physical impediments to stop the entry of illegal aliens into this country?

Those two governors and their followers are proposing infanticide, pure and simple, in their phony arguments about “women’s rights.”

Those “would-be-salons” are pushing for abortion up to and during a pregnant woman’s dilation. We have, as a society, indeed fallen to the utmost point of morality and are being mired in the “culture of the death.” At the moment of birth, children are to be sacrificed to greed and selfishness.

Clearly, abortion is wrong. I am reminded of the Psalms of David, including Psalm 12:1.

“How long, O Lord, will you utterly forget me?”

Also, Psalm 57.

“From the mother’s womb, the wicked have departed from their birth those that speak likes have gone astray.”

Also, Psalm 92.

“… Rise up, you who judge the earth. Render to the proud what they deserve. How long shall the wicked, O Lord, how long shall the wicked glory … How long shall they babble, speak haughtily, they who are evildoers? They trample your people, O Lord, and afflict their inheritance.”

Also, Psalm 72 is well worth reading again.
