I’m writing in response to the passage of a invoice in Augusta permitting for abortion growth till beginning in some circumstances. Criticism and negativity about one another is the straightforward route that’s prevalent in our tradition. I believe the phrases, “My proper, my physique,” are phrases that give no place for solidarity, to openness to others and repair to them.

This individualistic idea of freedom results in the sturdy towards the weak. The unborn child is weak, defenseless and on the mercy of others reminiscent of we as soon as had been. The hazard of selling solely ourselves is that we’ll possible attain the purpose of rejecting others. Our democratic beliefs are true after we safeguard the dignity of every particular person which features a mom, a father, an unborn child and our aged.

My hope for us is that we are able to work collectively to eradicate poverty and different issues so every human life might be revered. Below God, I’m my brother’s keeper as we belong to at least one one other.
