Dear Editor:

Kirsten Gillibrand, U.S. senator running for president, told CBS News that laws banning or restricting abortion are against Christian faith. "If your are a person of Christian faith, one of the tenets of our faith is free will. One of the tenets of our democracy is that we have a separation of church and state, and under no circumstances are we supposed to be imposing our faith on other people."

By the way, the separation of church and state is not in our Constitution: I've read it.

Pushing her demented logic a little, we should not have imposed our faith/morality on Hitler for killing Jews, or against states that held slaves. Let's not impose the commandment against stealing on those who don't believe stealing is wrong. And who are we to imprison others for selling drugs when one is free to choose not to buy.

Gillibrand evidently has no conception of the Biblical view that children are a creation and a gift from God and that each child is absolutely unique from conception forward. Imagine the blueprint for a human being in a cell so small it would fit on the end of a finger like a grain of salt. Nothing is added after conception except nourishment. Abortion, like killing Jews and enslaving blacks and others have one thing in common: They all discount the humanity of those being harmed. Our soldiers didn't die on battlefields to secure the right to kill 60 million children, and we need to stop it.
