Quandary?

acd9ef55-8d39-426c-97f7-fae62497abeaAll this flag waving 

and baby saving 

has got me asking a question:

How can you love an embryo 

But not a 3-year-old 

That got torn from his mother? 

 

How can a mass of cells

Be more urgent to protect

Than children in massive cells; 

Suffering, dying from neglect? 

 

Oh, I know; when the heart beats-

That’s where life begins 

But, I’m confused. 

Those children sleeping in aluminum sheets;

They have beating hearts too. 

 

No cause can be higher: 

We read Psalm 139.

Protect them in the womb!  

But they are all God’s knitting. 

Don’t we also rescue them from their chain-link tomb
