Letter: Abortion is barbaric, should repulse us all

Abortion is barbaric, should repulse us all

I am writing in response to the Sept. 1 letter about Planned Parenthood and the recent release of the videos discussing their sales of unborn baby body parts. The issue here isn’t whether Planned Parenthood made too much money on the sales. Neither is it about the other health care services that Planned Parenthood provides to women.

The real issue is the absolutely barbaric nature of the abortion procedure itself. I won’t go into the details because they have all been reported. But it must be revolting even to supporters of the right to have an abortion. The methods used to kill the fetus would get a person arrested if they were used on animals. But we look the other way when done to an unborn child in what should be the safest place in the world – the womb of his or her mother!
