LETTER: Vote to stand up for sanctity of lifeRecently I viewed a documentary on television which showed Germany after World War II.

To the Editor:
Recently I viewed a documentary on television which showed Germany after World War II. The German villagers were made to tour the concentration camps and see what had been happening in their country. They saw the barracks, the ovens, etc., and the piles of emaciated bodies of the Jewish people.
When they were on their way into the camps, they were laughing and visiting like they were on a holiday.
On their way out, they were weeping and appeared broken by what they had seen and realized had been happening in their country. It truly was a holocaust.
The haunting question has always been, “Why did the citizens allow such a horrendous thing to go on?”
I couldn’t help but wonder what Americans would think and do if they could see the more than 53 million babies that we have allowed to be aborted (killed) in America, stacked in piles that we could see: some just starting to develop; some torn in pieces and their heads crushed so they could be removed from their mother’s wombs; some late term babies who were burned to death with a saline solution inside the womb; and, before partial-birth abortion was finally banned, thousands of babies that were pulled from the womb except for their head and a scissor jabbed into the base of the skull and their brains suctioned out.
Imagine it. Picture it in your mind. Stacks of mutilated unborn babies. It is America’s holocaust.
It is the most important issue in our country and the elections and until we do something about the shedding of innocent blood and stopping abortion in our country, none of the other issues will matter.
Think about it when you vote because we are all responsible for what the people do that we vote for when we know their stand on an issue. The Republican platform stands for life. More than 53 million Americans have lost their lives through abortion and it’s time to stop this holocaust. Vote for life and stand up for the unborn.
