Letter: There are parents willing to adopt unwanted children

Editor,

Abortion, which means killing babies, violates the sixth of the 10 Commandments, “Thou shalt not kill.”

Abortion, though very convenient, is selfish. God creates babies before they are in the womb.

This means that babies begin with God and are conceived in the mind of God before they are conceived sexually by sperm-egg fusion. That gives us a lot to ponder and think about.

Should we be killing something that begins with God, and is in the mind of God before it it is in the womb?

Mary Baker Eddy, who discovered my religion, Christian Science, and wrote the well-known book, “Science and Health With Key to the Scriptures,” the textbook of Christian Science, writes in her chapter on “Marriage,” “God’s children, already created, will be cognized only as man finds the truth of being.”

As created by God, the baby has intelligence, the capacity to love, to be happy and to be good. It obviously has life when it appears, because it moves around in the womb.

And all life comes from God, at least that’s what Christian Scientists believe.

Is it right to kill something that has life? I don’t think so. Rather than selfishly abort the baby, why not try another option? Adoption. There are thousands of would-be parents who would practically die to adopt a baby. They cannot because there are so many babies being killed, that there are not enough babies to go around.

This is ridiculous and outrageous. These loving couples deserve to be parents, but as things are now going, they cannot, and never will, be parents.

Give the newborn baby to a loving couple who long to be parents. Don’t worry about or be afraid of possible embarrassment among relatives and friends.

What others think is truly not important. Practice a little self-sacrifice and unselfishness.

We must have compassion. Those who are pregnant due to rape, incest or who will die without an abortion, must have an abortion.
