The Sanctity of Life He hears me when I call • Abortion/Statistics I have a Father He calls me His own • We, as Christians affirm that He'll never leave me o Human life is not an achievement but No matter where I go _______________________________. o It has measureless value, because every ___________________________, at every stage of development and every state of consciousness, is known and loved by God. o This is the source of human dignity and the basis for____________________________________. o It must therefore be asserted without exception or qualification: No one is ___________________________________whom God has created and for whom Christ died. o Human life is_____________________________and should not be terminated merely because it is difficult. • John Willke, president of the National Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati, asks the right questions: o Since when does anyone's right to live depend upon someone else wanting them? Killing the unwanted, is a monstrous evil . . . o So, should a woman have the right to choose? I have a right to free speech, but not to shout "fire" in a theater.

Suicide and Capital Punishment are related on at least two fronts. o They each involve an intentionally premature death---meaning that death is actively induced rather than allowed to naturally occur. o They are all controversial subjects---especially euthanasia (including physician-assisted suicide) and capital punishment (government-mandated execution). o Many Americans, including Protestants, hold differing views on whether or not “mercy killing” should become legal and whether the death penalty should remain so.
