Respecting Human Life in MesaMesa Police and firefighters unfortunately reflect the problem of today's society when it comes to dealing with the subject of abortion.
Instead they mimic a society that turns its back on a national problem affecting the lives of over a million women and children every year.
The incident involved five Mesa police officers and four members of the Mesa fire department. a woman had a miscarriage in a Mesa motel. When law enforcement and paramedics arrived at the scene, she was taken to a nearly hospital for further care and treatment. According to the East Valley Tribune and other news accounts, the paramedics refused to take the body of the unborn child with them. Police called for instructions and someone told them to get rid of it.
Arizona Right to Life came out with a statement calling of a greater sensitivity when dealing with the remains of unborn human life and offering to provide training and classes to inform Mesa personnel as to the medical, legal and moral components of respecting unborn human life.
It is important that those in authority remember that their role is to respect the lives of all persons. It is just as important to convey this understanding to all employed in the public trust. Arizona Right to Life stands committed to assisting those in authority to understand this important reality. It is an important reflection on the character of a society how it deals with the mortal remains of its members. It also teaches the next generation how important each person truly is to ua all. This is an opportunity that should not be wasted.
