All lives matter

To the Journal editor:

What we have experienced over the past several months revolves primarily around the most precious gift any of us have, which is life itself. Both COVID-19 and the death of Mr. Floyd are about the loss of life; the first through a virus and the second through murder.

What we have also witnessed after Mr. Floyd’s death is the lawlessness of lootings, shootings and the destruction of businesses and property in the supposed cause of justice. I suggest that these acts of violence are partially the consequence of persistently devaluing the most innocent life of all, the unborn.

I believe the phrase “Black Lives Matter” is true. However, I recommend they amend it to “All Black Lives Matter.” Why? Because abortion is the moral equivalent to slavery when it was legal in America. Slaves were considered property of their owners and less than fully human in many respects

Such is the case today. An unborn baby is her body and she can dispose of it at the sacrificial altar of choice. You will never hear a pro-abortionist mention the unborn child. Why? Because they all know it is another person, a unique boy or girl waiting to be born.

You may have heard of the name Margret Sanger. She was the primary proponent in the abortion movement, and wanted ‘clinics’ to be established particularly in black neighborhoods so she could get rid of as many of ‘them’ as possible, and it has worked. One third, or 20 of the 60 million abortions are innocent unborn black children.

Perhaps as Americans we have forgotten that great sentence in the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Doesn’t true justice for all start in the womb? There is only one race; it’s called the human race. I assume we all appreciate our own right to life, so why do we keep promoting and allowing this injustice to the unborn? Sixty million from every creed and color couldn’t breathe because they were denied the right to take their very first breath. How sad.
