No price on a life

Dear Editor:

How much is your life worth?

Most of us would say that there is no price tag that we could put on our lives. Our lives are extremely precious – priceless, in fact. Yet we, as a nation, have had the audacity to say that some peoples’ lives are expendable – of no value or worth.

Jan. 22, 2014 marked the 41st anniversary of the infamous Supreme Court decision, Roe vs Wade, which made abortion legal through all nine months of pregnancy. But we do not stop with killing just the inconvenient preborn children, we have added to their unfortunate number the elderly and the handicapped.

The number of deaths will only grow now that our government insists that we subsidize abortions through the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), which also limits care to the handicapped and elderly by deciding which needed procedures will be covered and which will not.

We have had 41 years to get this straightened out. We have not done it. Now we may well be paying for this lapse of action with our lives.

Even at this late hour, we are not helpless. We can contact our congressmen and ask them to protect all human life from conception to natural death. We can ask them to repeal Obamacare. We can work and pray for an end to abortion and an increase in the respect for all human life. We can help those around us who are in need and vulnerable. We CAN bring about a change that values each human life, but only if we act.

Either all of our lives are precious, or none of them are. I, for one, vote for all.

Mary Jean Wessel,

Chairperson of Right to Life of Southeastern Indiana
