I am responding to a letter writer who said that Gov. Matt Bevin would be a “wise man” if he approached abortion in the same way as gun violence.
I agree that the issue of abortion does have cultural, economic and spiritual components. However, I thoroughly disagree that nothing should be legislated by our government concerning abortion. Since when is the life and death of a human being within the womb of its mother called “the woman’s health?” There is another person’s health at stake in every abortion decision: the fetus’.
We who live in the 21st century are concerned about human rights — as we certainly should be. What about taking the life of a human being just because he/she has not come into the world yet? Is the taking of a life not the worst human rights violation of all? You know as well as I do that, wanted or unwanted, it is a baby.
