Planned Parenthood is not at all about planning for raising children

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

In the Daily Sun's January 31st edition, Gail Morrison made it clear she could not vote for Joe Kenney, fearing he would not support Planned Parenthood.
Morrison has my utmost respect for stepping forward and expressing her views on what she believes. Regardless of a person's commentary, it's never easy to have your words read in public since it's apt to spawn other opinions, such as mine, that are contrary.
The name Planned Parenthood sounds great but in reality it's more about not being a parent and planning for children as Harry Mitchell brings to light in his Sun letter of Feb. 1.

When visiting family in Rhode Island, I enjoy early morning walks to a favorite neighborhood café. On my path is a Neighborhood Center where there are always people, both young and old, holding signs as follows: "Think it over" ... "Not today" ... "Your baby has no voice" ... "Please return to your car" and it'll be with these 'sidewalk folks' in mind that I will enter the voting booth in November. Hence, whatever candidate best articulates a genuine personal sensitivity and compassion for life will have my vote.
