God made you or he didn't.
If he did, your little human life is, and has been, touched by the divine. If this is true, it would be true of all humans, not only some. And so--again, if it is true--each human life is precious, of infinite value, worthy of great respect.
Someone sent me a link to a commentary by Peggy Noonan which started with this quote. It was written in regards to Terri Schaivo. I couldn't help but be reminded that many of the people who are so adamant about saving her life and who would agree whole-heartedly with the above quote in this context also support the death penalty. Can someone please help me out here? I'm serious. Is each human life precious and of infinite value - or is that just true until we mere mortals decide it isn't?
