I am responding to your bold assertions that you made in your Friday Feb. 6, 2009, editorial, “It is Time to Do the Right Thing.”
First, I agree that it is very inconsistent for our Legislature to be on two sides of two of the most important moral issues facing our country today, homosexuality and abortion. These are issues that are far beyond the worn out and misused expressions of “equality” and “choice.” These issues are literally life and death issues for us and our progenies’ generations.
You stated, “Now, while there may be moral issues with abortion, it is something not to be advocated in making it illegal. The majority has spoken on this.” While your wording is a bit unclear in your first sentence, your second sentence is overstated. There have been many different polls conducted throughout the years since Roe v. Wade in 1973 and there is not a clear consensus one way or the other in the United States. My observation is that our country is pretty well divided on the issue of abortion and certainly there is not an overwhelming majority that support abortion, as you infer. This is an ongoing and very important debate, no one “has spoken,” there is still much to be said.
