elderly patientA city mayor, inspired by his wife’s aid for the elderly, led an effort to defend and uphold life.

Rod Mann, mayor of Highland, Utah, got the idea of a city council resolution from his wife, who volunteers at a center that helps the elderly and severely disabled people.

From her own experience helping the helpless, he tells OneNewsNow, came the idea of a resolution that states all life is worthy and sacred.

The resolution, which passed unanimously, reads in part:

We declare all human life, regardless of age or circumstances to be protected by the laws of society, and we support legislation on state and national levels that protect human life from its earliest stages and we oppose lessening existing restrictions on abortion and euthanasia.

The resolution also recognizes the legal and moral rights of health care provides who object to participating in abortions and euthanasia.

The city of Riverton and Utah County have also passed resolutions against abortion and for declaring their city off limits for abortion.

Similar measures have been passed by city and county governments in Texas, New Mexico and New York.
