All life is sacred
To the editor:
On March 31, 2005, Terri Schindler Schiavo died in Florida by court order of dehydration and starvation 13 agonizing days after her gastric feeding tube was removed.
This was the day after my 70th birthday and is still one of the saddest days of my life as I was there, in all, some five months over three years to desperately try with hundreds of others from around the country and the world to save her life. She was the unwitting “poster child” of the euthanasia movement and agenda all too commonplace today.
Euthanasia, like assisted suicide and abortion, including “contraception” which ends the life of the developing baby before implantation, is murder, plain and simple. It is today's eugenics, holocaust, genocide.
A point I wish to make is how sacred all life is from the first moment of life at conception until natural death no matter.
God only in his abiding love is giver and taker of life according to His will and purpose. We must abide in love and protect them, the most innocent and vulnerable. Choose life!
