Letter: It’s high time we stop sugar-coating abortion

It’s high time we stop sugar-coating abortion

Jan. 22 will be the 45th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize abortion. This month brings with it an increase in pro-life activities. This is a good time to define associated terms.

Let’s stop sugar-coating our language and call things what they really are. To start: abortion is murder. It is not “a woman’s choice” or “the destruction of a blob of tissue.” What the abortion doctor is destroying is a preborn baby, a human being with its own individual DNA and eternal soul, both present from the moment of conception. Pregnancy is not a disease. It is a normal condition, the way in which the human race is propagated. Abortion clinics are not clinics at all. Clinics promote health, not destroy it.

These places are abortion stores. A woman walks in, pays her money (or her insurance carrier does) and gets rid of her “garbage.” We are not an enlightened society. We are promoting a holocaust of unimaginable proportions.

To date we have murdered over 60 million of our people. That is much more than Hitler and Stalin combined. Being pro-life does not mean we are against choice. The choice should be made at the time of intercourse, not after conception has occurred.

Our elected leaders who promote and vote “pro-choice” – especially those espousing to be Catholics and some other Christian faiths – are two-faced individuals. Are they like this in other legislative activities?

Does leadership mean granting free license to kill these defenseless individuals? Murder is murder – a very serious offense against all types of law, except civil law, thanks to them. So let us at least be true to our language and call things what they are.
