Abomination

  Dr. Jim Ferguson from Knoxville, TN, wrote an article for the "Knoxville Focus" a few months ago entitled "Abomination". It is an article about abortion, primarily "late term" abortion. He wrote that only 9 of the 28 people he asked about the New York law that allows abortion up to the time of birth, and that can be done by non-doctors, were aware of the law. He also mentioned that the Governor of Virginia supported ending the life of an 'infant" after delivery if the mother says so. 

At the end of the article, Dr. Ferguson wrote, 
 
"You may have heard the famous poem by the German Lutheran minister, Martin Niemoller, written during the Nazi reign of terror". 
 
First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out - 
    Because I was not a socialist. 
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out - 
    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out -
    Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me - and there was no one left to speak for me.

Dr. Ferguson continued, ''Now, I challenge you to substitute ''the unborn" for socialist, trade union­ists, or Jews. If we do not believe in the sanctity of human life then it won't matter whether we build Trump's wall, balance the budget, or cure cancer. We will have turned a blind eye to injustice and are already gangrenous and rotting away from the inside."
