God made life regardless of the circumstances

This Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (HB4588) is a compromise. This bill states that it is all right to murder an unborn child up to 20 weeks during their growing process in the womb. However, after 20 weeks it is going to be a bit of a crime if a doctor decides to kill an unborn child for whatever reason.

Since when is it determined there is no pain when there is life? Life begins at conception and therefore it is murder to kill that life at any point in the pregnancy, regardless of what the government dictates.

I personally do not support, as I am sure many others do not support, the killing of an unborn child, as God created that life regardless of the circumstances in which the child was conceived.

We have become a much more tolerant society over the years as to what is morally right or morally wrong. What happened to the absolutes?

How can any doctor vow an oath to preserve life and yet be willing to kill a life on demand?

This whole issue of glossing over the murder of an unborn child and calling it abortion has robbed our society of many valuable lives. We want our own way and not God’s way. We are an insensitive people when it comes to the value of a human life and are willing to compromise God’s Word.

When are those who claim to be Christians going to start standing up and making their voices heard for what we say we believe?
