Letter: 40 years later, a litany of woes from Roe v. Wade

Comment on this story

In reference to the Feb. 8 column by Carole Brite, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood, in regard to the 1973 Roe. V Wade decision which legalized abortion, this is what it looks to me.

To begin, the it was passed on a lie and deceit.

It's been 40 years of legal killing of over 53 million pre-born innocent children. Our country has become disobedient to God's Law of Life.

We have increased child abuse. The young are being targeted for their sexuality. We have widespread promiscuity, apathy among many people, increased violence, murder and irresponsibility; unsafe schools. We now have assisted suicide, mercy killing and even euthanasia has been taking place.

Abortion clinics have become a big moneymaking business!
We have tax funding for abortions which I strongly object.

Planned Parenthood lobbyists are always in Washington, D.C. objecting to all common sense pro-life legislation. Also there have been many covered up deaths from legal abortions!

Is Carole perhaps not aware of the January March for Life in Washington, DC where there were over 500,000 people who marched for the end of legalized abortion.

A very great number of these people were young. Many regret their abortions!

No, the choice to have an abortion is definitely NOT what I would have wanted for myself, my children or for my grandchildren.

Deuteronomy 30:19 "I call Heaven and Earth today to witness against you; I have set before you Life and Death, the Blessing and the Curse, Choose Life, then, that you and your descendants may Live."

Life is precious!
