The expression "sanctity of human life" has a deep meaning and must be in the forefront of our morals, our beliefs, our humanity.
It is hard to know where to start. We now have a society that permits the murder of unborn children.
Your readers ought to be aware that since time started English law has recognised the property rights of an unborn child that included right to titles, wealth and position.
We now have a situation where unborn children who have property rights can be murdered. Perhaps I can't say murder in a legal sense, but only in a moral sense.
The degradation of human life is an uncontrollable slippery dip.
In the last century we have witnessed unthinkable crimes inflicted on humans from Armenia, Kurdistan, the Gypsies and the Jews and others.
In each case the value of the lives of the victims was buried in the criminal minds of their tormentors who did not want to recognise the "sanctity of life".
Heaven help us, we even had a correspondent, Geoff Field from Gundagai, compare the amalgamation of Cootamundra and Gundagai shires (I offer no view on that merger) to the loss of over 90 human souls in the Great Flood of Gundagai.
That's where we are slipping to - comparing deaths of over 90 human souls to some political event.
I am implore readers to search their souls, search their hearts and their conscience.
We, but not me, have slipped to allow the slaughter of the unborn and now the move is to do the same with the sick and infirm.
Is "slaughter" too harsh a word? I say no it is not.
Readers must never forget that in the early days of Nazi rule the sick, the infirmed and mentally ill were gassed and their families were told they died "of natural causes".

The Morrison-Joyce government has finally revealed its emissions reduction "plan" to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
Of note, the modelling highlights how the government continues to back the fossil fuel industries - with the gas industry expected to grow by 13 per cent out to 2050, and with the coal sector projected to still be operating at around 50 per cent of its current capacity in 2050.
This stance goes against growing international commitments to phase out the use of coal and to achieve global net zero emissions by 2050.
Worse still, the plan has not considered transitioning Australia's economy in a world rapidly moving to clean energy technologies, or how Australia may be able to take advantage of growing global demand for zero emissions products like renewable hydrogen and green metals.
Australia is going to miss out if we bullishly go against the global market trends.
We, the regular Australians, can however make a difference.
This federal election, we need to be smart about who we vote for; to vote for a safe and prosperous future by voting for the politicians who will support the transition to the clean energy future.
