Children of a lesser God?

I was trying to explain to my daughter why some of us treasure pre-natal life but believe in capital punishment, and some treasure life after he or she is born, but neatly divide life in the womb from being afterwards.

I gave up.

I guess the simplest thing to say is that I believe all life is sacred -- and I wrote this as a way of honoring the lives of women mostly forgotten by those of us with houses and families and the graces we take for granted.

May they have the peace in death they probably didn't have in life.
