Reader agrees with pastor on abortion issue
Pastor Frank Nolton’s views on abortion (in his recent letter) were lucid, rational arguments based on science, real-time statistics, common sense and the love of life. That being said, it will be met on the left with the usual hyperbole that life as we know it is doomed.
Since we will have more life with this stain upon this nation gone, I agree. I’ve never understood the word “reproductive rights” when connected to abortion. However you describe what’s growing in a woman’s womb, the fact remains, it’s living. What is “reproductive” about killing what is living in a woman’s body? Apparently, there are no rights of the father and, most importantly, the right to life for the child.
The extreme left cry anti-abortion is un-constitutional yet as the Declaration of Independence states, we “are endowed by their (our) Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Ouch!
There’s that Creator thing again. The Constitution does not negate that right to life. It means its God given and no government can take it away except in circumstances after birth in cases of murder, etc. At which point the left will defend the murderer to the hilt, pushing aside the harm done to the victims as nothing of value.
The radical left treats pregnancy as if it’s a disease or, worse yet, an inconvenience. Unwanted, a financial burden the left cries. There are childless couples that would love to adopt with many more alternatives for life than death. Abortion is no small operation and it’s as brutal as it comes plus it puts the woman’s health in jeopardy.
Concerning the letter with the biblical scholar Mr. Lowe. Read 2 Peter 3:8. Interpretation: God does not go by the Julian calendar or any other. Finding humans 800,000 years old is but a blink of an eye to the Lord and does not debunk the Bible. Even the seven days of creation in Genesis could entail millions of years. The next verse says the Lord is “not willing that any should perish.” That would include the innocent unborn, you think? RON PORTAL Lodi
