    Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel, in speaking of the terrorists in the
    bombings in Boston stated, “These people target others who have done nothing
    wrong. All they proved  was that they can kill innocent people”. .When we
    think of the holocaust we remember the horrible loss of over 6 million human
    beings. A scientific justification that dehumanized these people led to the
    killings. Today other innocent people are being killed, not by bombs or in
    concentration camps, but by abortion—over 50 million unborn babies since
    1973. Today “scientific” arguments that claim the unborn baby is merely
    subhuman tissue is used to justify abortion. Like toddler and adolescent,
    the terms embryo and fetus do not refer to nonhumans but to humans at
    various stages of development. The comparison of babies’ rights and mothers’
    rights is unequal. What is at stake in abortion is the mother’s lifestyle as
    opposed to the baby’s life. The Bible does, in fact, prohibit the killing of
    innocent people (Exodus 20:13) and considers the unborn to be human beings
    worthy of protection (21-25). Children are a blessing and a gift from the
    Lord (Psalm 127:3-5). May we do all we can to provide this protection.
