The Week’s Two Big Stories

This is very confusing to me!   Both stories deserve our attention and to me. .  . horror! But the first, of the killing of Cecil the beautiful lion has received  most of the attentioin on social media yesterday while there has been little mention of the Planned Parenthood video where fetal body parts are being sold after partial birth abortions.

I would love to hear from any of you my dear readers how you think these stories are possible in the year 2015! I am neither  confrontational nor  argumentative or I try not to be.  For me, it is very clear.  I love animals and though I think hunting for food is perfectly fine I  can’t imagine killing for sport.  And though the second Planned Parenthood video is a result of abortion , it is more about dignity, I think.  Abortion is legal.  Selling body parts of a mass of tissue for either experimentation or surgery is not.  The language has changed from mass of tissue to body parts which indicates humanity. For me, it sounds like the work of Josef Mengele in the Second World War.

Your thoughts?

    I am much more concerned about the Planned Parenthood issues, but I find myself disturbingly hesitant to say so. I tend to be non-confrontational even about things I feel strongly about. Thanks for the post. I appreciate you and your perspectives!

    Thanks so much Sarah. I know exactly how you feel. I feel exactly the same way. Sometimes, I can gather myself to speak about something , ignoring the possible negative reaction of others. I try to be firm but non-confrontational, of others. Thanks so much for your transparency, your kind words, and encouragement!
