We are each empowered to choose: Do so wisely

There is little or no gray area in life. We muddy the waters with moral relativism and our profound collection of human "knowledge" ["'Hack' abortion foes, meet Thomas Aquinas," Feb. 1].

I prefer to evaluate known quantities. I know that a child who is not murdered has the possibility of a bright future.

I know that a mother who carries her child to term has the possibility of watching her child grow and impact the world in a positive manner. We are each empowered to choose.

My prayer is that we become more aware of our choices. Good or evil, create or destroy. Let's improve on what has happened in the past, look toward our future, evaluate the possibilities, and choose the one we will work toward.
