Letter to the Editor

Sad, impressed

Wednesday, April 7, 2010

Dear Editor,

I was both saddened and impressed by Bob Thayer's satirical response (April 2-4) to my conservative response to his liberal (and I guess we could say hurtful) attack on a local conservative woman who dared to characterize the White House with words like Nazism and Communism. Impressed by his ability to use satire and also the fact that he did not harass me on the telephone as did the last Democrat who responded, by phone, to my last conservative article to the Gazette. Saddened by the fact that the writer definitely appears to be a Christian and evidently has no problem reconciling his Christianity with a pro-abortion President, and, Christians in name only, vice president Joe Biden and House Leader Nancy Pelosi.

J.G. McHale

  • J.G., I am and have been pro-abortion since the age of 12, long before Roe V Wade. My mother and Step-dad cured me of liking babies and little kids starting when I was 9. Yes, I have children and no, I didn't treat them like I was treated. I am also not a built in baby-sitter for my grandkids. I refuse, pure, plain and simple. People should not be forced to have children if they can't afford them, are not over the age of 21, or just plain didn't want them in the first place and the contraceptive failed. In every election I vote pro-choice, regardless of the party.

  • I often wonder how the phrase pro-abortion gained currency but not the phrase pro-enforced pregnancy? Better PR on that side I'd guess.I'm also mildly amused by the term pro-life because you'd think anyone who characterizes themselves with those words would oppose the death penalty given the often arbitrary, often capricious manner in which it's applied and also every war not waged to- in the words of Smedley D. Butler- protect our borders and our constitution. I'd submit that abortion is indeed the wrong end of contraception but would also submit that most could be prevented by accurate comprehensive sex education.
