To the editor:
Mr. Speck, in response to your letter to the editor on March 28, I would just like to say that I share your concern for animals who are abused by irresponsible people.
Some of these animals meet an unnecessary and untimely death.
I myself have a 14-year-old dog. I'm not ashamed to say that I love her and will dearly miss her when she passes.
Having said this, I must say, however, I am infinitely far more concerned about living human beings, living babies created in the image and likeness of an almighty and loving God, who are removed from the safe and secure environment of their mother's womb and are murdered for the sake of convenience and the love of money.
In your tearjerking letter you repeatedly and eloquently lament that the dog of which you speak never had a chance. I beg to differ with you. At least he had the chance to run.
Little babies of which I speak that are murdered by abortion, "otherwise thought of by many of us as murder incorporated," in this our American Holocaust, don't even have that chance. These precious little souls, created in the image and likeness of an almighty and loving God are the ones who truly never had a chance.
Psalm 139:13-16, Verse 13: "... for Thou didst form my inward parts; Thou didst weave me in my mother's womb. (14) I will give thanks to Thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; wonderful are Thy works, and my soul knows it very well. (15) My frame was not hidden from Thee, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth. (16) Thine eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Thy Book they were all written, the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them."
