It might seem strange for this story to provoke me to write a pro-life post,
Authorities have found what they call the largest and most sophisticated tunnel running into the United States along the Mexican border.
The tunnel contained 2 tons of marijuana, stacked in bales, according to a statement issued by the Justice Department.
but that's how it hit me. When I read the story and saw the pictures, my first reaction was a deep anger. The largest and most sophisticated tunnel ever found, and what is it transporting? Drugs!
