Letter to the editor | Sentencing the unborn

In 1973, the 7-2 Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade enacted abortion rights.

Since then, more than 56 million unborn babies over 41 years have seen their fate. My point is about life and and the existence of it, determined by a nation’s court to decide whether someone lives or is terminated.

A conversation came up between a young woman and me discussing abortion and she told me “a woman should have the right to do whatever she wants to do with her body.”

I asked her if the Supreme Court later decided to allow women to terminate after birth up to 6 months because she was having postpartum depression, would that be OK?

She replied, “I’m not really sure.”

At this point of the conversation, I declared it was over.

The more liberal this nation becomes, the fear is how far left will it become.

Will the elderly, the physically and mentally disabled come into play also?

I believe in judgment. Not by a court, but by God only.
