Every Human Life is Valuable

logo

Each human person is unique.  Everyone has their own special qualities.  Since the beginning of time, no two people are exactly the same.  Not even identical twins!  Each of us is created in the image and likeness of God (see Genesis 1:27)

There is a lot of interest in genealogy, because people want to know where they come from.  Each of us has a mother and a father.  It is biology.  There is a need to know our biological parents, even if we are not fortunate enough to be raised by both of them.  Children have a right to know and to be raised by their mother and their father.  A forever marriage is the natural means for loving family formation.  It is unfortunate for the child when that is not the case.

As a national people, we celebrate Mother’s Day.  We recognize the value and importance of our own mother on that day.  Everyone has a mother.  Mothers are critically important to the continuation of humanity!  So we celebrate mothers.

Just as important are fathers!  So we celebrate Father’s Day.  But in recent decades, many men have abdicated their role and the duties of fatherhood.  And society is hurting because of it.  Seventy percent of the children born in Detroit are born into families with no father, even though, obviously, someone “fathered” each child.  How can we encourage these child-less fathers to accept their responsibility?

And what about the mothers who abort their children because they have been abandoned by the child’s father?  There is a lot of hidden pain for the mothers and fathers of more than 60 million babies aborted in the United States in the last 46 years.

Seeking to reduce some of the pain, I am part of a group of people circulating a petition to ban dismemberment abortion.  This is a type of late term abortion that literally tears a child limb from limb while in its mother’s womb.  These children cry and no one hears.  We seek to respond to their cries.

With 400,000 signatures, this citizen initiated legislation will go directly to the legislature in Michigan, where it was already passed last May.  But the governor promised to veto it.  So we are going directly to the people.  With enough signatures, the governor cannot veto it. 

But we need help.  We have only until December to gather these signatures.  Many churches have held drives already.  Many registered voters signed  the petition when we were at Street Fairs and Festivals during the summer.  But we need more help.  If you can help, please go to the website: MichiganValuesLife.org and request a petition.  Sign it.  Ask your family and friends to sign and mail it in.  If you want to do even more, visit the Right to Life of Michigan Resource Center, 2010 Eureka in Wyandotte.  The babies need our help.  Mothers and fathers need our help.

If we don’t appreciate human life or respect and defend innocent life, what value is our own life?  Every human life is valuable.  Prove it!  Do something!  See MichiganValuesLife.org.

Sincerely,  Deborah Bloomfield

General Session II:

Brandon Buell
Jaxon Strong: Celebrating a Precious Life from a Father’s Perspective

Brandon Buell didn’t truly recognize the purpose behind his prolife convictions until the birth of his son, Jaxon, born in 2014 with an extreme and incurable brain malformation. Before his birth, hope for Jaxon’s life was nearly impossible. Abortion was suggested frequently by medical professionals who stated Jaxon may live only a few weeks—if he were to even survive delivery—and he would be significantly limited in his abilities. Through faith, Jaxon’s parents chose life for their son. Against all odds, Jaxon is now five years old.
