Letters: What would Lincoln think?

The recent movie “Lincoln” was highly acclaimed in this year’s Oscar-considerations.

Part of its popularity was due to this being the 150th Anniversary of Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, in 1863, declaring slaves in all American states, including those in rebellion against the Union, to be valuable human beings of equal worth with all other citizens, and thus “forever free.”

The 13th Amendment, in 1865, enshrined the sanctity, moral value and equality of human life.

Yet, 150 years later, some argue for the right to reject the moral value and equality of selected human life.

Abortion unjustly kills a human being, because it is unwanted, despised, or regretted.

While most would not argue for killing a toddler, some advocate taking the life of a human embryo or fetus, gestating in a womb.

What would Lincoln think?

What does God think?
