Open forum: Why do officials pass laws that support the culture of death?

It is stated in the Constitution of the United States of America “We hold these Truths to be self-evident that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Government officials are elected through the grace of God and should be required to govern and pass laws in keeping with God’s laws. So why do officials pass laws that support the culture of death? Are they in agreement with: Friedrich Nietzsche, Ayn Rand, Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, Margaret Sanger, and Jack Kevorkian? These people did not believe in God but that the will is absolute, pleasure is paramount, aversion to suffering.

With absolutely zero respect for the lives of the most vulnerable it diminishes the value of life to the extent that countless others are murdered. Legislators push gun legislation but support the culture of death. They fail at their jobs and let the courts pass laws such as Roe v. Wade. I hold our legislators liable for the gun violence in this country due to their total disrespect for human life. With each abortion there is one dead and one severely wounded. Population growth in this country is now below sustainable levels for the country. Over 65 million babies murdered is totally unacceptable. Yet we criticize other countries about human rights.

First it was the babies and now they have started to treat the elderly the same way with assisted suicide being done in several states.

Scrap House Bill 2495 and Senate Bill 1942. These bills violate everything the founders of this great nation believed in. Abortionist logic is that two wrongs make a right.
