I’m responding to two letters to the editor from April 28. One says “The fence around that building is now a constant reminder that abortion is not normal. It is a visible sign, day and night, reminding people who walk in there, that there are other options. The empty sidewalk, protected now by police, became a memento for all the babies whose chance to live ended right there, at that place.”
The fence reminds me of the razor wire around the capitol after the insurrection. Was that a constant reminder that government is not normal?
The other letter proposed forcing people who object to abortion to adopt unwanted children. Hyperbole, I know, but it still illustrates my second point: The children are mere pawns in the argument. Unwanted children forced on anyone is a recipe for child abandonment, abuse and neglect.
