A brilliant letter to the editor from a young man named Maaike Rosendal, published in the Lethbridge Herald.

I tell ya, the future of the pro-life movement is lookin’ up, with so many young and talented activists!

Don’t lives trump feelings?

It is sad that some children saw the abortion images Aug. 17 at the Farmers Market in downtown Lethbridge. It is much worse, however, that hundreds of Canadian children undergo the injustice we showed.

Abortion is legal during all nine months of pregnancy and violently decapitates, dismembers and disembowels a human child.

As explained in the Aug. 18 article (“Abortion protest draws criticism”), our project does not directly target children but those who are old enough to have abortions. Yet, it is impossible to reach teenagers and adults where no children will ever be present. Thus, when it comes to choosing between born children’s feelings and preborn children’s lives, don’t lives trump feelings?

Adults sometimes use children as an excuse for why the pictures shouldn’t be shown, but often they don’t want to see them. One mother’s response was different. Rather than being upset about having to explain abortion to her children, she said, “It concerns me a whole lot more that they live in a society that okays (this).”

Children have functioning consciences. Do we? If we care so much about children, shouldn’t we care about the 100,000 Canadian children who die through abortion every year?

When abortion is hidden, abortion is tolerated. We refuse to be part of the cover-up that enables the brutal killing of children and leaves men and women with a lifetime of regret.

Our final question is this: if the images of what is chosen are too horrific to look at, why do we allow and contribute to such a “choice” in the first place?

  1. The Nazi’s passed over 400 laws legalizing their holocaust. At the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials they said,” we did not do anything wrong, we did not break our law.” Technically they were right just as Western Civilization would be right today. The Nazi’s were indicted because the majority of the West had not yet converted from Christianity in government, law,and education to the new religion of Politically Correct Relativism with it’s blasphemy laws enforced by government and court decree. The Police take people to jail in the West today who disagree with this New Western Religion. When will our citizens realize that this new religion of Politically Correct Relativism try’s to make reason out of non-reason, hence the title of the sanctity of life film.” Eclipse of Reason”?
