Cutts way off base


Robert Cutts in his letter to the editor compared the courage of the 14-year-old Pakistani girl who was shot in the head for fighting for the education of females in her country to the 825,000 women in America who kill their unborn babies each year. How does that compare? They are totally different circumstances and issues.

He implied that voting for a conservative would put women at risk of being killed themselves. Most of the 3,300 abortions a day in America are a form of birth control because the baby is an inconvenience to the mother and that mother chose to have unprotected sex. It is rare that abortions are for rape, incest or the life of the mother.

We cry out for our soldiers being killed, for the victims of terrorist attacks, for victims of heinous crimes, but we remain silent at the deaths of the estimated 54,559, 615 deaths of unborn babies in the womb since the inception of Roe vs. Wade in 1973.

People should educate themselves on the methods of abortion killings.

Laws are man made; therefore, there are good laws and bad laws. Abortion is a bad law as it takes away the rights of the baby in the womb, the father's rights and all those connected with the unborn child. When Roe vs. Wade was decided, the justices only looked at the mother's right and neglected to address the rights of the baby in the womb. Up until that time it was wrong to kill a baby in the womb. Now we have crossed the lines of morality and made an exception that it is OK to kill certain babies in the womb. Where will it end?

God has the perfect plan for mankind, but these days people disregard his perfect plan and bring chaos and division to our land. The conservatives of this world want to end the unjust killing of any person. Life is to be cherished for all persons from conception to natural death.

There are many more issues than pro-life in this election. The economy, escalating debt that is out of control, jobs, housing, religious freedom, healthcare mandates, leadership in foreign affairs, gas prices, and the socialist agenda that is leading our country to disaster. If you want to end the course we are presently on, vote for the conservative Republicans on the ballot. It is not heroic to want death camps of any sort in America.
