Abortion is THE issue; over 50 million lives lost Print

To the editor:

FINALLY, there is a writer in the Catholic Herald who is angry about legal abortion. After 40 years of hearing so little from priests on the subject, and reading mostly about the acceptance of what we cannot change, one writer in the last issue — George Weigel — seems to be upset.

I didn’t really understand the title “On really not getting it” but it must have made me curious. We’re at the point of taking lives in abortion clinics in filthy conditions, and even killing the children after they have been born and in circumstances where the sex of the baby is not what the parents want and without any affiliation with a doctor or a hospital and on the tax payers’ dime.

We still can’t manage to pass any legal restrictions, and no one really cares except those people who want legal abortion to continue for those who “need” it.

Some say it’s just one issue. Others say neither party does anything to end it or restrict it.

Abortion is THE issue. We are responsible for the loss of 50 million+ lives.

We, at SS. Anthony and Philip Parish, Highland, are praying a Rosary for Life every Wednesday and Friday at 7:30 a.m. All are welcome to join us.

Jane Tarrell, Highland
