Unfortunately, Barack Obama is living up to his promise to eliminate protections for the unborn. Without doubt the result will be more dead babies. Abortion is one of those tough issues that most politicians would prefer to dodge, but it is too important to sidestep. Frankly, I don’t understand how one can argue that people have a right to have sex with whomever they choose whenever they choose, and that the same people have no responsibility for the consequences of choosing to have sex, especially when that consequence is a life. With freedom must come responsibility.
Some pro-life activists are promoting “the red envelope project,” urging people to mail empty red envelopes to the White House on March 31, with the back inscribed:
This envelope represents one child who died in abortion. It is empty because that life was unable to offer anything to the world. Responsibility begins with conception.
It’s a thoughtful protest, highlighting the reality of abortion: the death of innocent life.
