12 亞伯  

亞伯這個名字在希伯來文的原義是虛氣,他因為兄長的忌妒被殘殺致死,埋屍在四下無人的田野,成了人世間一切無辜受害者的代表。但神鑒察萬事,終究為他申了冤。亞伯的故事同時指出,在一個被罪轄制的世界中,生命的神聖性得不到尊重,生命嬴弱,猶如虛氣。

在台灣的情形是,罪惡深重的死刑犯,有人為之奔走;卻每年千千萬萬個真正無辜的胎兒(他們乃是弱勢中的弱勢)被任意剝奪生命,無人聞問;甚至強詞奪理作他們根本不算是個人。

In Hebrew, the name Abel means “vapor”. He died under the hands of his brother whose intense jealousy drove him to kill and bury his own sibling in an unknown field. Abel’s death became the symbol of all wrongful deaths in the world. But the omnipotent God eventually avenged for his death. Abel’s story shows that in a world dominated by sins, the sanctity of life is not respected and life is fleeting as vapor.

In Taiwan, while there are people who fight arduously for the heinous death row inmates, tens of thousands of innocent fetuses are robbed of their lives each year before they have a chance to be born. These fetuses are the weakest among all victims.  No only their lives are being destroyed, some people even justify such behavior by calling them non-humans.
