We do bet­ter job pro­tect­ing an­i­mals

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

Un­born chil­dren have “rights” too. We say ' un­born child' be­cause it is a life, a hu­man be­ing. Abor­tion is elim­i­nat­ing the pos­si­bil­ity of sur­viv­ing – aka killing. The SPCA does a bet­ter job at pro­tect­ing an­i­mals than we do at pro­tect­ing the life grow­ing in our body. They send red flags about adopt­ing a pet on the spur of the mo­ment, be­cause the re­spon­si­bil­ity will be yours for years to come. But abor­tion is OK be­cause you can get rid of this 'thing' that in­ter­feres with your plans. If you're hav­ing sex, ac­cept preg­nancy or pre­vent it. With so many birth con­trol meth­ods avail­able, why abor­tion?

I be­lieve that life is sa­cred and we have no right interfering. If you re­ally don't want your baby, some­one will be over­joyed to adopt him/her. Think twice be­fore you have an abor­tion. I have known women who, af­ter many years, still deeply re­gret abort­ing their child. Don't do some­thing that may haunt you for the rest of your life. Lita Arnold, Malpeque
