I “pushed for life”

Posted

To the editor:
I was sad and disappointed to see your large headline and pictures in your October 5th newspaper promoting abortion. I guess you were unaware of another local event on Sunday, October 3rd called the “Life Chain” held on Broadway in Monticello. This was a group of men, women and children lined along the road with signs promoting “Life”.
The Sullivan County Right To Life Commitee has held a “Life Chain” on the first Sunday of the month of October for many years. The “Life Chain” is part of the National Right To Life Organization. The major “Right to Life” event is held in Washington in January every year.
I have been a proponent for “Life” for many years. I have worked with the “1st Way Life Center” a pregnancy support center in Monticello for the past 10 years. I have witnessed the blank and painful look of a woman who requested and received counseling after going through an abortion. I have also experienced the happy faces of mothers and children who ask for and receive help for the basic needs of their families.
I am 89 years old, father of seven, grandfather of ten. I guess I am closer to the “end” rather than the start of my life. I will be happy to tell my God that I “pushed for life”.
I wonder how the people in the pictures on the front page of your newspaper will feel when they tell God how they “pushed” for abortion.

    It's funny, you don't see children at the abortion gathering, well that is he point, there would be no more children since to abort an adult is murder which is against the law. If they keep aborting children next would be extinction sooner or later of mankind, womankind so abortion equates to the end of humankind only they don't realize that.

    The other thing they don't realize is that if their parents had decided to abort them they would not be here to promote it!

    Also funny is they claim NOW they brought religion into this, ah excuse me but religion has always been in this.

    Pro-life or No-life, it really isn't a choice is it?!

    I love life.

    Hey Don! What happened to you on FB? Can't contact you any more. Did you finally close your account?

    BTW, ignore Bill. I read his other comments. He is a useful idiot for the unhinged :-)
