To the Editor:
The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only legitimate object of good government. (Thomas Jefferson, in a letter to the Republican citizens of Washington, Maryland, 1809.)
For a number of years, Representative Tim Moore has sponsored and co-sponsored legislation in the Kentucky House of Representatives that would, as far as possible, prevent the destruction of pre-born children by abortion. He has been a stalwart proponent for the right to life, and an eloquent spokesman for the safety of the elderly, children born with disabilities, and others that live on the margins of society. Representative Moore has always considered it his duty as a legislator, to promote the care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, regardless of race, ethnicity, born and pre-born. As a leader in the pro-life movement for 41 years, I have never met a more hardworking, conscientious, honest, and non-partisan legislator when supporting laws that are in the best interest of all Kentuckians.
In many instances, modern technology has outpaced the application of morality in the modern world. Because of the precision of modern technology, ninety-three percent of pre-born children diagnosed with Down syndrome are aborted. Assisted suicide has been enacted into law in two states in America. Euthanasia is a clear and present danger for the elderly and sick. Over one million abortions are performed in America each year.
So called same-sex marriage has been a very hot political issue in many states and will most likely be debated in the General Assembly of Kentucky sometime in the future. That it is a burning moral issue which cannot be ignored. Representative Tim Moore will work tirelessly for his constituents in the 18th district. He will support the traditional application of the law, on all issues that touch on the dignity and sacredness of human life and marriage. Please vote for Tim Moore.
