TITLE: An Act of Duty
By Ramona Cook


Oh yes, it is mentioned fairly often but never really discussed about Little Alien Beings that are being killed every day within the borders of our Nation.

It is a lucrative business, but that is not the best service this business performs.

Of course, with the diminishing food resources that we have in this Nation it is a necessary undertaking to kill the alien beings.

It is reported that at the least 4000 per day are being extinguished.

We do not know how the little aliens feel about it because they cannot talk. But one thing is certain, they deserve to die.

While we do not know what harm they intend to us, we also do not know if they might be bringing us knowledge of cures for some of our great diseases, and that would destroy our multi-billion dollar medical business.

What we do know is that they are intruders and that they must die.

If they showed themselves friendly we would receive them as such; if only we could know they would not harm us.

But since we cannot be certain that they carry no weapons of war-fare, it is not a thing we chose to do that we should outlaw the killing of these short blobs.

Then of course is the added defunding of a rich income resource for our Nation and for some of our finest doctors, if we should stop the Killing Factories. Oh indeed, we are wise people.

Think what would happen if we allowed them live among us; they’d grow up to look like me and you! I guess our mother’s did not love us.

It is wonderful that we grow wiser as we progress, don’t you agree?

I'm sorry....What? very good writing but I think Ive missed a step..

The article is written in the sardonic form.

The subject is unpopular especially if you agree with abortion. Then too, it is distasteful if you disapprove of abortion.

Abortion is the subject.

As a writer I will not do the political two step around around touchy subjects.

Sorry you did not get the point. Thanks for the positive comment.

My sincerest apologies, I did not realize what this was about and that is due only to my ignorance. It is a very good article and now I understand it completely. Please forgive, and God BLess

Lynn, No need for apologies. Ocassionally we write things that are clear to us but not to others.

Sarcasim is not a frequently used form of communication and I don't know why I felt to use it in this case; maybe because the word "abortion" creates such a wall of resistence on both sides of the subject.

I appreciate your kindess and gentleness to comment again. But I took no offence. Blessings.
