Thou shalt not kill. (Exodus 20:13 KJV)

As I walk along the beach during the summer I quite often come across large turtle tracks in the sand. Sea turtles are one of God’s beautiful creatures. They are protected by the United States Endangered Species Act of 1973. The law states that any person who knowingly harms or disturbs the turtle nests or little turtle eggs may be assessed civil penalties up to $25,000 or a criminal penalty up to $100,000 and up to one year imprisonment. Humans were created in God’s image. (Gen 1:27) The total number of human abortions in the U.S. between 1973-2011 was 54.5 million and currently one baby is aborted every 26 seconds.(1) There is no penalty for harming a defenseless baby in the mother’s womb but if a person touches a turtle egg they can be imprisoned. God have mercy on America. Since we cannot create life we have no right to take it.
