Compare government view of unborn babies to slavery Print
Letters to the editor

To the editor:

According to the contents of Roe vs. Wade, all unborn babies are not human, not persons. They are eligible for execution. They are inhuman like animals.

Before President Lincoln declared the Emancipation Proclamation, the U.S. government regarded all African Americans as not humans, not persons. They were like animals and therefore eligible for slavery.

How many U.S. citizens have read the Emancipation Proclamation and Roe vs. Wade?

Charles J. Sippel, Waterloo
