For the Silent Voices: The implications of personhood

The other implication of babies personhood being true in this current culture is that we are living in sin. And this is especially true of the Church. Think of the silence of the Christian Church during Nazi Germany. This was a terrible thing. That the church could have been basically silent during this period is some that I think we cast judgement on them for.

Babies are murdered everyday. At one time we as a race could say that we spent more of our time killing those who at least had the possibly of defending themselves, however wretched those killings might have been.
