“Our cause is noble; it is the cause of mankind!” – George Washington
I guarantee you – were he alive today, the visionary George Washington would be striving with us to end abortion. In fact he’d probably be on the board of Live Action. The following are five of the key reasons why I believe our Nation’s first President would stand with us.
Abortion kills the most innocent.
What could be more innocent than a pre-born human baby? We breathe in and turn our heads from the television in horror and dismay as we hear about the tragic fate of little Caylee Anthony. We mourn the senseless killing of young students at the hands of a gun-wielding maniac at Virginia Tech. The younger the victim, the greater the churning in our stomachs – the feeling of the hopelessness of humanity as a whole. I once watched The Exorcist – and I don’t recommend it – but the thing about the film that struck me most was the innocence, cuteness and happiness of the twelve-year-old girl before she became possessed. The first half of the film is designed to portray to the audience a healthy well-loved girl, blissfully unaware of any of the troubles of the World. The subsequent transformation from delightful to evil only more thoroughly disturbs and sickens us. The same scenario is true of the killing of a pre-born child through abortion. Murderers and rapists are rightly sentenced to imprisonment – but woe betide the fate of the man who murders or abuses a little child. The judge may be lax, but very often fellow inmates will not be so gracious; even their damaged consciences recognize the extreme degree of callous and calculated evil that such men would carry out against a little child.
The abuse or murder of any human is a great injustice, however it is clear that the younger or smaller the victim, the more reprehensible the crime.
