Not a matter of choice

Ted Bergey’s Sept. 25 letter, “Both pro-life and pro-choice,” makes no logical or moral sense. We pro-lifers want abortion to be illegal because we wish to protect unborn children from lethal violence. Life begins at the moment of fertilization, and I would affirm the civil rights of our unborn sisters and brothers even if someone proved there is no God.

Bergey says he is against capital pun­ishment. So am I, and I’m not pro-choice about it. I want to deny the right of anyone to execute a criminal.

The idea that killing the innocent unborn is a matter of choice is one of the most obscene, evil, barbaric and reprehensible ideas ever to enter the human mind.
