This candidate shares an ethnicity with hundreds of thousands of Americans who, a mere 140 years ago, were regarded as disposable. Household equipment not worthy of protection under law. We now, rightly so, shudder to think of the inhumanity of that period in history. The suffering of those who could not speak for themselves.
This candidate seems to have missed the relationship.
Any valid political philosophy must have at it’s core that all members of the human race have equal dignity and protection under law. This applies to all regardless of gender, race or religious belief. It also applies regardless of age or stage of development. Embryo, fetus, pre-born are as much stages of development as toddler, teenager, middle aged and elderly. One would never vote for the right to terminate inconvenient middle-aged men. In the same spirit children resting within their mother’s womb, which should be the safest place on earth, are entitled to protection. To life. To be born.
Tomorrow when you are about to cast your vote, I implore you to remember this picture and to think of my child. The much anticipated, loved from the moment he was conceived child. Ask yourself if he is less a person than any of the other children I love. Picture a child who is not as anticipated and loved and ask yourself if he really deserves to die for the circumstances of his conception. Ask yourself if that is the kind of person you are, the kind who would place the life of a child in such low esteem. Ask yourself if you truly want to answer to God for that at the end of your life. Ask yourself. Then ask God for His Divine Assistance.
God bless you.
