I am 14 years old, and I am a Christian. I would like to state my opinion on abortion.
I know that all the Republican presidential candidates have a different view of abortion, and I would like to share mine with you. I believe abortion is not right because you are destroying a life God is fashioning and forming in the womb.
Here are some Bible verses to back up the sanctity of human life.
"You (God) made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb. Thank you for making me complex. Your workmanship is marvelous -- and how well I know it.
"You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed."
I have thought a lot about the Vietnam War. You may think I am crazy, but I have a hard time with the attitude people have here and now.
Many protesters of the war got in the soldiers' faces and called them "baby killers." Why aren't people protesting today when so many more babies are killed by abortion? We had the idea that during the Vietnam War, killing babies was wrong, but now we have a different mentality. I don't see how babies now killed by abortion are any less worthy to live than the ones killed in war.
