The public becomes horrified for select issues. On June 23 we learned that in the 1950s, the Chalifaux couple sold their four children. Should we be outraged or grateful? Although those siblings did not have the benefit of living together, they were allowed to live.
Thankfully the parents did not drive them into a lake or strangle them with an electrical cord. They probably were not placed in cages and treated like dogs or burnt with cigarettes or a curling wand.
Did anyone stop to consider the 56 million babies slaughtered within their mothers’ wombs over the last 40 years? These were innocent children! Has abortion become as commonplace in the United States as getting a cup of coffee?
Although it is unnatural to sell your children, it is far better to give them life.
Let’s stop this war on children.
