>[ProLife.org.ph] A Call to Defend Consistent Ethic of Life

>> A CALL TO DEFEND THE CONSISTENT ETHIC OF LIFE
>
>
> Respect for life must apply in all human activities, whether it be in
> sports, sexual encounters, or one's profession. For instance, we cannot
> claim to be champions of life if we enjoy watching and cheering two human
> beings hurt each other deliberately, drawing first blood, as in boxing.
>
> The picture of the hostage-taker slumped over the window of a tour bus
> with his bloodied torso hanging out is a testimony to the culture of death
> reigning over so many aspects of our lives. Guns have only one purpose,
> and that is, to kill. Why a dismissed policeman should be allowed to
> possess a high-powered rifle is an issue that lawmakers should address as
> they deliberate on a proposed bill calling for stricter measures for the
> carrying of firearms. More deaths have resulted from rage and hubris
> rather than the need to protect oneself from assault. The bill is
> entitled, "Citizen Protection Act."
>
> Likewise, we cannot claim to be humane by condemning the torture of a
> prisoner at the hands of a law enforcer if we advocate, in the same
> breath, the murder of countless defenseless and voiceless human beings
> through abortion because they are inconvenient. Doctors who perform
> abortions on the one hand, and deliver healthy babies on the other hand,
> may feel conflicted in their professional psyche. We all are part of the
> web of life. When we begin to devalue the life of one member of the human
> race, we escalate into the cheapening of the rest of human life. Again,
> our lawmakers must ponder this "domino effect" when they deliberate on a
> bill entitled, "Protection of the Unborn Child Act 2010."
>
> The culture of death destroys humanity. When one no longer knows the
> meaning of life, despair sets in. And despair is the ingredient that spurs
> people to take their lives relentlessly. Therefore, PRO-LIFE PHILIPPINES
> FOUNDATION pledges its utmost support for both legislations which are
> consistent with the promotion and defense of the culture of life.
