After World War II, German citizens living around Nazi extermination camps were required to visit the facilities to witness the artrocities they had permitted to occur. Though it was technically “legal” to kill Jews and other political prisoners, the citizens were blamed for not breaking the law in deference to a higher moral code.
This is the way we feel about the slaughter of 25 million unborn children. Some of them are being burned to death by a salt solution only days before a normal delivery would have occurred. This is a moral outrage that transcends the law which sanitizes the killings. We are law-abiding people and do not advocate violence or obscene and disrespectful behavior, but to be sure, we will follow that higher moral code nonviolently, to rescue innocent, defenseless babies. And someday, the moral issues involved here will be as clear to the world as the Nazi holocaust is today.
