First and up front: I am pro-life. While I personally think the recent vote in our state went a little far in its stance, that in itself does not confuse me. Here is what I do not understand:
Our governor has stated, and I quote, " . . .this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians' deeply held belief that every life is a sacred gift from God." Her words were echoed over and over by those supporting the current legislation.
So, if this is the true feeling of the majority of Alabamians, that all life is sacred, why does Alabama list among the top 10 states in the nation in penal executions?
Yet "every life is a sacred gift from God?” No wonder I am confused.
