Letters to the editor

To the editor:

The period of time during the 40 Days for Life, September 22 through October 31, is an ideal time for all Catholics to be reminded that human life begins at the moment of conception.

At the moment of conception God infuses a newly created immortal soul into the cell union. At that moment there is a body and soul. At the moment there is a new person, a human being.

The unborn persons are entitled to the same respect as born persons. Unborn persons should not be subjected to abuse in any way just as born persons should not be subjected to abuse of any kind.

Charles and Magdalene Sippel, Waterloo
