Letter to the Editor

Rising, falling with the tide

Thursday, March 2, 2017

Dear Editor,

To the author of the Opinion piece entitled, "No Unwanted Children etc." and his sympathy with the "anonymous" Facebook writer who lives in complete oblivion of what mental darkness enters into the life of any woman who experiences an abortion, not to mention the callousness with which the Facebook writer disposes of the murder of defenseless babies who are without rights, a kind of deconstruction of "equal rights."

To writers such as these, writers who are a minority, thank God, I recommend that they read a poem by one of our great American Poets, Robert Louis Stevenson, entitled, "The Tide Rises, The Tide Falls," where the theme has to do with our mortality while creation goes on infinitely.

I confidently predict that with a few more confirmations to our Supreme Court like Judge Corsich, the scourge of abortion, the murder of the defenseless, and the misguided compassion for pregnant women will be ended and the United States will be able to hold up its head and say that an evil mistake, made by our Supreme Court has been overturned, and, to quote a line from the final verse of Stevenson's poem" -- substituting the word "traveler" with the word "abortion."

The day returns, but nevermore, Returns abortion to our shore, And the tide rises, the tide falls.

  • And really who cares what Robert L. Stevenson had to say, he was only a writer. These aren't defenseless babies, they are not a human being yet, only a glob of blood.

  • I had a daughter that didn't have an abortion because the fathers mother was Catholic and convinced her not to abort the fetus, guess who raised it, I DID. Thankfully the next 2 she aborted. Now that child I raised has thankfully aborted 2 and hope she continues to be smart and abort the next one if there is one.
