What is the measure of one's worthiness?

The horrific images and videos of children being torn from their mothers’ arms at the Texas border probably still are fresh in your mind. I never will forget. As the outcry rose to an uproar, the news media informed us that there were approximately 1,500 of those terrible incidents. That number grew as the days went by.

The number 1,500 stuck in my mind because, according information found on CNN, that is approximately the number of preborns being ripped from their mothers wombs every day in America. We aren’t flooded with pictures of those faces. We don’t have to cover our ears against those cries. They perish nearly unnoticed. Almost all of the children of undocumented immigrants, thankfully, will be returned to their parents. Not one of those aborted will see the light of day.

What is the measure of one’s worthiness of being treated decently or being allowed to live or even to be born?

Aided by the mainstream media, it is the Democrat political machine, the Planned Parenthood abortion industry and those who support them who are responsible for the continuation of the slaughter of the innocents. We, as a nation, can do better.
