I am a longtime Philadelphia Eagles fan. All of this hype about giving Michael Vick a second chance has convinced me that many Americans don’t have the common sense God gave a bowling ball. I don’t know of anyone who would advocate what Vick did. There is no way to justify it. It was wrong.
However, I don’t want to hear anyone bellyaching about a bunch of dogs that were illegally killed, while we make it a legal practice to kill babies: human, moving, living, breathing babies. And like it or not, that’s just what an abortion is — it’s killing a baby.
Our society’s belief has become very twisted. All of a sudden, a baby isn’t a miracle anymore; it’s a mistake. I am 17 years old. Abstinence is not a popular idea in my generation.
Donte Stallworth (wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns) killed a lady while driving drunk and earned a year in prison. Vick kills dogs and earns almost two years. The immeasurable value of human life is being disregarded by our justice system and by our government. Millions of animals can’t come close to the value of a human life. So smile: Your mom chose life!
