Bishop Hying’s full tweet reads, “If unborn children could speak, wouldn’t they say, ‘Let me be born. Let me walk, learn, dance and sing. Let me love God, pray, and make my contribution to the world. Let me fall in love, and know truth, beauty and goodness.’ Wouldn’t they say all of these things? Wouldn’t they?”

Another user wrote, “😢 They would! And how our world has been deprived–deprived ourselves of the many great works of art, music, discoveries, beauty, truth, goodness God intended for us in the souls of lives extinguished?”
This user added, “Yes, Your Excellency, they would! Made in the Image and Likeness of God, their precious lives are sacred from the first moment of existence. Thank you for defending the sanctity of every human life!”
