Most traumatic event was birth control pill Print
Letters to the editor

To the editor:

The most traumatic event in the 20th Century was not the Second World War or the atomic bomb. It was the birth control pill!

Before the pill, family life was strong with eight to 10 children. Now the basis of society is obliterated, and the world is falling apart.

What happened to the billions of children who never saw the light of day? Satan rejoices, and Jesus and Mary weep.

May God have mercy on us! And He does. His merciful forgiveness is ours for the asking. The ball is in our court.

Dan Naber, North Providence, R.I.
