Posted in: Justice: Is It Even Worth It?
I always wonder why the plight of babies in the womb is often overlooked. It is the biggest human atrocity the world has ever known. 42 million pre-born babies are killed worldwide every year. Many of those right around us! From conception onward, these are human beings - just at a different stage in life. Human rights should start when human life starts! Please let's not forget about the unborn (pre-born)! Diaconal ministries can help by supporting Pro-life and Right to Life groups. With knowledge comes responsibility.
In our Contemporary Confession 'Our World Belongs To God' we confess:
"Life is God’s gift to us,
and we are called to foster
the well-being of all the living,
protecting from harm
the unborn and the weak,
the poor and the vulnerable."
"He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it."
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
