Monday, July 31, 2006 | “…the life of a fertilized human cell…” The key word in the first sentence of the article is the word ‘life’. Most people know that life begins with conception, and ‘a fertilized human cell’ is a human being, a baby in creation, and not just a human cell. They are innocent and helpless and should be protected from being destroyed before they have a chance to leave their mothers’ wombs. I don’t see the connection between soldiers who are trained to fight and kill and protect their country with an innocent, unborn child who should be protected. Everyone honors a soldier who gives his life for his country, but in this mixed up world, innocent unborn babies are destroyed and, yes, tossed out as so much garbage. They should have graves and markers, but if a woman is so selfish and unfeeling as to have her child destroyed, why would she want to face the fact that she destroyed what she was supposed to protect. She would want to believe it isn’t worth burying? If she acknowledged it was worth burying, then she’d have to also face the fact of it being her child and not some worthless cell to be disposed of.
