Endangered Species

Fact - A landowner in the lower 48 states can receive from one to five years in jail and/or a $20,000 to $100,000 fine for harming a single American bald eagle, any of it's eggs, or even altering it's habitat.

But are the ones who would send you to jail for destroying the eagle's egg, the same ones who ironically say the destruction of the human fetus is just fine and within your legal rights?

Shouldn't the human "egg" have legal rights and protection also, just like the eagle and it's eggs? To take away a human's choice to live, but protect and save the eagle's life is hypocritical, isn't it?

Many will argue, saying you can't compare the two because the human race is not an endanged species....
or is it? Have we become so hardened as to not give any value to human life, especially in it's earliest and most vulnerable stages?

God never promised us a rose garden. He knows we will be faced with difficult times in our life. But He did promise to give us strength to get through these trials and tribulations....and we will be the stronger for it.
