As our constitution stands, it is illegal to take a life. Those who murder are punished.
This is designed for the protection of all members of society.
We are disgusted when we read of Nazi war criminals that murdered innocent people, and have never been brought to justice.
Even now such people are being prosecuted for their crimes, 70 years after the end of the war.
Taking a life is a very serious thing to do, and it crosses all the lines of humanity and Christian faith.
I believe life is not ours to take in any circumstance. We cannot give life to anything, and it is not incumbent on us to take anyone else’s life away.
Our society honours people who save others, especially at the risk of their own life.
