Palin on the value of life


"For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well." (Psalm 139:13-14, NKJV)

The VP pick of Sarah Palin by John McCain apparently has stirred the waters of excitement for the GOP. According to Real Clear Politics the bounce received from the GOP convention has sky rocketed the Republican ticket to a lead in the political polls. Of course the only poll that counts is the one on the day of the election.

Palin is a conservative Republican whose traditional values will resonate among conservative evangelicals. Perhaps for the first time in this election season the GOP has given hope to those give moral values a primary consideration when choosing candidates.

The fact that Palin choose to give life to her child with Downs syndrome may help highlight the value of human life to our citizens. Kirk from Pittsburg, a caller to the Rush Limbaugh radio program, shared with Rush about a campaign stop meeting with the McCain family and the Palin family. The caller, was thrilled to meet them, but even more so to know that Palin understands the unique blessing of all children regardless of their disabilities.

You see Kirk is also a parent of a Downs syndrome child. He brought his daughter Chloe to the event and when Palin spotted her she asked if she could hold her, then picked her up and gave her a hug.

Human life is always valuable because it is uniquely made in the image of God.

"But Jesus called them to Him and said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God." (Luke 18:16, NKJV)
