Sick to the thought

Letter to the editor.

Editor:

Once again the Pro-Life sign outside Telkwa has been vandalized.

Obviously it is a hot topic — and it should be.  Any time an innocent life is killed the news lets us know, but when this innocent life is in the womb? All of a sudden its hush hush.

Guess what people, from the moment of conception the child has human DNA and everything about the child is decided.

“If a fertilized egg is not by itself a full human being it could not become one, because nothing is added to it. That is, life begins when the sperm and egg get together at conception to form a full set of DNA, without which human life would not begin and progress” — Dr. Jerome LeJuene.

There is a silent genocide going on in the world and it makes me sick.
