A few weeks ago, my parents and my 7-year-old sister came to hear me speak during a pro-life rally in our area. Though my little sister may not understand the details about abortion, she knows that abortion kills a baby in its mommy’s belly.
But during the rally, my sister heard something that she had never thought about before – abortion centers.
As her innocent mind processed the thought, she looked up and asked my mom, “Is that where they kill the babies?”
“Yes,” my mom answered.
“Do they kill children there, too?” my sister asked.
“No,” my mom replied. “Just babies in their mom’s bellies.”
“But they don’t kill children?” my sister asked again.
“No, it’s against the law to kill children,” my mom said.
My sister’s question came from a logical conclusion. If babies aren’t protected then children must not be either, because there is no significant difference between a baby and a child that would justify killing one and not the other.
