Using common sense and a moral compass, J.D. Sharp has written a book to bring attention to the unsustainable divisions we have in our country. In ‘Abortion the True Cost to America‘, he points out the heavy costs we as a country are paying for our lack of a consensus on major issues such as abortion.
Taking a long hard look at what divides us as citizens, J D has found that a moral wrong perpetuated and tolerated is the centerpiece. Much like slavery, we have a group of people, (the unborn), being treated as if they are of lesser value than other humans. Like slavery it threatens the core of our Republic.
Hard to deal with but answerable questions have been substituted for soft unanswerable questions with a quick fix. To be more specific, the narrative on abortion has fixated on a question humans cannot answer with certainty; when does life begin? The quick fix is the abortion of the unwanted child.
The answerable question, (does life exist at abortion?), can be answered by anyone with an honest conscience. We know what’s being aborted is human and alive. What we have refused to deal with is; does a woman’s right to privacy trump her child’s right to live?
We must decide as a people with overwhelming agreement, the answer to the following question. If a human life is dependent on another human for survival; does that human have the right to terminate the dependent life?
The history of our nation’s character has always had the willingness to die for the right to live; that through life one may have liberty to pursue happiness.
