Pennsylvanian's For Human Life:|
Thank you for visiting the Pennsylvanians for Human Life - Greater Harrisburg Regional Chapter (PHL) HomePage. Our goal is to foster respect for human life from conception to natural death.
History teaches us that mankind is capable of horrible deeds, often hidden under the guise of some justifiable purpose. The Holocaust perpetrated by the Nazi's during World War II is one instance of a horrible atrocity justified to the people by lies and misrepresentations. Reverend Martin Niemoller, a Lutheran Pastor, was quoted regarding this time in Germany:
"We preferred to keep quiet. We are most certainly not without guilt; and I ask myself over and over again what would have happened if 14,000 evangelical ministers all over Germany had defended the truth with their very lives in the year 1933 or 1934, when their must have been a possibility? I can imagine that we should have saved 30 to 40 million lives, for this is the price we now have to pay."
Today we have abortion on demand, hidden under the guise of "freedom of choice". Also, there are places where euthanasia is commonplace, often without the consent of the individual or family. Even in the USA, where the right to life is protected by our Constitution, we hear of stories of "assisted suicide" almost daily. Just as history has harshly treated the Nazi's for their misdeeds, so will we all one day look back upon this time of "abortion on demand" and "assisted suicide" and treat the agents of death with disdain. The question is not if, but when.
When the history is written for our time, where will you have been? Like Reverend Niemoller, will we regret the lives we could have saved?
