Letter: Confirmation class reaffirms abortion beliefApril 23, 2014
To the editor:
As young Catholics about to receive the sacrament of Confirmation at Holy Family Parish, we stand firm in our belief that abortion is murder. We believe that at the moment of conception, God creates a human soul, and we understand that each person is created in the image and likeness of God. No one has the right to terminate a life, and a life in any situation is sacred.
Abortion is a holocaust that has now continued into the 21st century. The babies whose lives have ended are people who perhaps could have been our friends. God has a plan for each of us, and too many have died — aborted souls who were never given the chance to live out God’s plan for them. They are victims who had many qualities to share with a world they never were allowed to enter.
It is our prayer that the slaying of innocent babies will someday stop in our country as well as the rest of the world. How can our cruel society be considered a civilized one? Abortion is barbaric and totally inhumane.
We are sophomores at Jasper High School and feel that we need to speak up about the horrible continuation of abortion. Soon we will be confirmed fully into the Catholic faith, and it is our desire to live our faith to the fullest.
