Wow! Jeremy Moses' letter Jan. 11 is the perfect example of cultural desensitization. When is the last time you saw front page headlines that the local abortion clinic set a new record by performing more than 20 abortions in a single day? Do you think it would make prime time news 24/7 for several weeks? No? So why is a daily public heart wrenching display from pro-life advocates necessary in order for their concerns to be legitimate?
The implication seems to be that only things which produce grief, tears, introspection and/or prayer are morally identifiable. Is that really the kind of world you want to live in and promote? Should the level of grief felt or displayed determine morality? I value all life and do not feel I have authorization to judge one life as more or less valuable than another. I suspect others lack necessary authorization.
When our government legalized abortion, it began desensitizing us to unborn lives in this world. Doesn't make it right.
