The protection of human life should be of great concern to all of us.
We generally tend to nurture life, defend life, prolong life, heal life, and do whatever we can to make life good.
But unfortunately, some of us seek to end life prematurely through abortion.
So a majority of the members of the Tennessee House of Representatives this week passed a law, by a vote of 72 to 24, to discourage abortion, by requiring any doctors who perform abortions to have hospital admitting privileges in the county where an abortion is performed or in an adjacent county.
Opponents charged the House of Representatives bill is intended to make it harder to have an abortion. Obviously that is the goal.
The state Senate has not yet acted.
Human life is very precious. It is very unfortunate that the issue of purposely ending human life is even debated in our state Legislature.
