Abortion is bigger issue than transgender rights
While I believe the rights of transgender students should certainly be protected, I would be surprised if many readers know specifically of even one transgender student who is being affected by President Trump’s recent action on this matter.
On the other hand, I believe that many readers are very aware specifically of the physical and emotional pain that abortion has caused not only to the helpless, defenseless unborn but often to mothers (and fathers) who regret their decision.
Why then do I read about transgender issues on the front page, when I seldom if ever read anything at all in any section about the real pain, suffering and guilt that many mothers feel after voluntarily terminating a pregnancy? This to me is a human issue, too, and should be given more coverage.
