Letter: Abortion rulings

More and more we read of legal rulings in defense of abortion rights, and even input from the older generation, none the wiser despite their years. (Pg. A5, NV Appeal April 24… and pg. A9, RC letter to editor April 17.)

The irony of declaring that the need for a medical procedure must not be in the hands of “politicians,” yet hailing Nevada for allowing access achieved only through “political” means, completely escapes their double-minded logic.

Calling abortion “freedom of choice, a personal medical decision, reproductive health care, family services, freedom of personal autonomy,” or by any other definition, doesn’t change what it really is any more than calling your 80 mph speeding habit “stress ventilation” changes what it is.

Sadly, abortion is the ending of a new person, conceived for a sacred purpose. “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.”
