Letter: Responding to “pro-life” letters

Posted

To the editor:

In regards to the "Pro-Life" opinions of Barbara and Donald from recent editions of the Times-Gazette, I suppose you've never known someone who has been sexually assaulted and forced to have the child of their rapist. I suppose you've never known a young couple who have had condoms not work/break. I suppose you are both financially able to support an unexpected child, unlike so many young couples in America today. I suppose you'd rather have your controlling little fingers all over the life choices of every woman in America. This isn't an issue of "left" vs "right". It's an age-old issue of people wanting to control others. The Old Testament God would love it.

If you want your money to go towards helping women heal and getting them away from controlling members of our society, go contact your local senator and urge them to vote YES on Bill S-2549 and contact your local representative and urge them to vote YES on bill H-7500.
