Dead babies are Dick Lamm’s legacy — unless he repents

Dear Editor,

Your November 1, 2013 special insert coverage of Dick Lamm’s 40th Reunion was an interesting retrospective but was sadly lacking one important detail from his legacy, which all the celebrating of his life and accomplishments can not erase.

The former Governor’s bill, which brought liberalized child killing to America in 1967, has led to the deaths of over 50 million innocent human beings who were never able to enjoy their beautiful country, see a breathtaking sunset, smell a rose or enjoy a glass of wine at a celebration.

Precious children made in God’s image and likeness who had souls, were denied the God-given, inalienable right to life, which America’s birth certificate, The Declaration of Independence, delineated.

Every year in Colorado alone, a Pepsi Center full of children are killed and flushed into the sewers or incinerated, like so much trash.

That is the sad legacy that will go with Dick Lamm into eternity, unless he repents for the horrific legislation he passed 46 years ago, which I pray he does.

Human rights do not come from the government, for then they wouldn’t be rights; nor from the majority (consider America and slaves, Germany and Jews); nor from the delivery doctor or hospital. For rights come from our Creator, at that moment we are created, as Jeremiah 1:5 quotes God, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.”

The Declaration of Independence affirms what those who believe in God have always known.“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life…” We have human rights because we are made in our Creator’s image and likeness, which is why parents, unlike animals, have a moral obligation to protect and love our children, born and unborn. 

We have the right to due process as affirmed by God when He said, “Thou shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.” And we have the right to own private property as affirmed by God when He said, “Thou shall not steal.”

And we have the right to life as affirmed by God when He said, “Thou shall not murder.”  — AmericanRTL.org/the-Bible-and-abortion
