A Quote by Ronald Butt on children, christianity, civilization, consequences, deed, humanity, life, and shame

For nearly 2,000 years of Christian civilization, taking the life of an unborn child was regarded as a vile and heinous moral offense which degraded humanity. . . . Abortions to avoid illegitimate births, or otherwise for convenience, were performed with a secrecy that was as much the mark of the shame attaching to the deed as a consequence of its illegality.

A Quote by Robert Lee Frost on deed, future, heaven, life, love, mortality, needs, play, separation, work, and yielding

But yield who will to their separation, My object in living is to unite My avocation and my vocation As my two eyes make one in sight. Only where love and need are one, And the work is play for mortal stakes, Is the deed ever really done For Heaven and the future's sakes.
