The Two Questions That Remain

Tom Sharman, our old friend who runs Tesco Studios where I recorded all those years of "Vital Signs" radio programs, recently wrote the Omaha World Herald the following "Public Pulse" letter. I don't know if the staunchly pro-abortion newspaper will print it or not but certainly Tom's level-headed approach makes a very effective apologetic for the sacredness of human life.

Writes Tom, "After 35 years of Roe v. Wade, the same two questions remain that have always been there. 1) When does life begin? and 2) Once life has begun, does it matter?

As regards the 1st question, to establish it at any other time than conception is really very arbitrary as even a full-term birth baby cannot survive on its own. Concerning the 2nd question, since we are each made in our Creator's image, it matters to Him and therefore should to us.

These two questions will never go away."

The accompanying photo shows Tom (at far right) with Patrice Kabore and myself at a Vital Signs Ministries event following our trip to Burkina Faso to make the documentary film, Come to the Light. The traditional costumes Tom and I are wearing were gifts from Colonel Saye Zerbo. Nice huh?
