Your View: Taking a stand

JOPLIN, Mo. — Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2013, marked the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

That Supreme Court ruling makes it legal to kill, destroy, abort a living fetus that had done nothing except be an unwanted interruption to a selfish lifestyle.

To date, 55 million of these precious unborn have been aborted. There is more attention in America given to endangered species of wildlife than to human life. Sad commentary for a country that decries human rights violations in China, Iraq, Iran and other countries. It’s hypocritical and insane and stupid.

If the job environment were in a positive status, how much could these 55 million aborted lives contribute to the economy? The liberal media and liberals in Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Supreme Court have intentionally created this havoc on purpose to destroy this great nation. Sen. Claire McCaskill, you are included in this devastation because you have unswervingly supported President Obama. This includes support of the homosexual lifestyle, which nullifies reproductive abilities.

Pastors and churches, it’s time you stepped out from behind the wall of silence and became radically vocal against these issues. Either you are against abortion and homosexuality or you support them.

I stand against them by writing this letter.
