Our prayer for world peace is in truth a prayer for the recognition of the Sanctity of Human Life – Born and Preborn.
Dr. Jerome Lejeune said it:
“If big Russian learns it is okay to kill little Russian, and big American learns it is okay to kill little American, then you are not going to tell big Russian it is not okay to kill big American, and you are not going to tell big American it is not okay to kill big Russian.”
He added that nuclear war would not be far away.
Dr. Lejeune was to the world of genetics as Einstein was to the world of physics.
Einstein had this to say about the need for world peace in 1947:
“In the shadow of the atomic bomb it has become apparent that all men are brothers. If we recognize this as truth and act upon this recognition, mankind may go forward to a higher plane of human development. If the angry passions of a nationalistic world engulf us further, we are doomed.”
Einstein is reported to have later commented that he did not know how World War III would be fought, but he knew how the fourth World War would be fought – with sticks and stones.
These two men, Albert Einstein and Jerome Lejeune, 40 years apart in their pronouncements, were showing us two sides of the coin of peace.
The first side of the coin is recognizing that all men are brothers.
The other side of the coin is recognizing that preborn children are equal brothers with all men.
It becomes apparent that to protect our own adult lives, we must first protect the lives of preborn children. Stopping the holocaust of preborn children is the first step to preventing the holocaust of a thermonuclear war.
It is said in truth that a child shall lead them. The younger generation is about to lead us, beginning with an assembly that Students for Life have planned at the Lincoln Memorial in June (the first anniversary of the Dobb’s decision).
Dr. Martin Luther King delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. What dream do Students for Life have for preborn children in our nation and throughout the world?
Yours very sincerely and respectfully,
R. Martin Palmer
P.S. We all remember President Trump’s words in his last State of the Union speech to Congress:
“Let us work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life. And let us reaffirm a fundamental truth: all children – born and unborn – are made in the Holy Image of God.”
Curiously, President Trump recently said on the campaign trail for the 2024 election, “I am the only candidate who can prevent World War III”.
