ANALYSIS/OPINION:

There is a battle raging across this nation on the issue of amnesty for illegal immigrants, and it is a hot topic. Amnesty can be defined as “the act of an authority by which pardon is granted to a large group of individuals.” Most illegal immigrants entering this country are seeking a better life, and it is amazing how a borderline can make the difference between a life of despair and a life of hope.

The amnesty question is an issue with which our nation must deal, hopefully in an effective and humane way, and I pray this debate will solidify the notion in the minds of all that every human life is a priceless gift.

There is another large group of human beings seeking amnesty to live a better life, and more than 50 million of them have been denied a pardon and eliminated in this country since 1973. These “unborn immigrants” are seeking passage from the womb to the outside world, and some are even terminated after they have partially crossed the “border” into this world. Who knows with what gifts, knowledge and love these unborn citizens would have blessed this nation? Perhaps some were carrying with them to ability to one day cure some of the horrible diseases that plague our world.

Once the decision is made to deny amnesty to the unborn, these citizens do not have the ability to return to their previous homes. Rather, they are quickly destroyed. Isn’t it time we do some real, comprehensive reform and grant amnesty to the millions of unborn “citizens”?
