Can we be honest about discrimination against skin-color and pre-natal status?

Both abortion and slavery are based on the false claim of ownership of another human life. Much of the disrespect for human life in America that was once based on skin color has now shifted to be based on pre-natal status. Whether based on skin-color or pre-natal status, disrespect for human life is morally wrong.

Current events are demonstrating that when our society is so cold that we can deny the humanity of a child in the womb, we have the capacity to disrespect the humanity of anyone. Human life is too incredibly amazing to be disrespected in the womb or anywhere else!

The womb is no longer a safe place for human life. When life is devalued in the womb it’s devalued everywhere. Legal or illegal, the killing of an unborn baby is cruel.

Legislation can’t change a hardened heart, but the radical act of kindly speaking truth while humbly loving your enemies can. America needs a heart change!

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
