Advising women to have abortions a small part of what PP does

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,
Ever notice that Republicans always manage to make it seem like the president is doing what they are themselves doing. "Lawless" in the case of this Congress is duel in meaning. Not only have they not done anything to create jobs, they keep saying stupid things about the president. Yes we understand they have no moral compass, they, like so many locals, are so wrapped up in their whining about losing the last presidential election they seem to forget that they were elected to do a job; maybe if we paid them minimum wage for a month, they would get it. Oh, and no food stamps or taxpayer funded lunches, you know, there's no free lunch. I don't believe they would get it, no moral compass and all, but it might save the country some money.

Now some people who claim to be Christians are up in arms about the Pope pointing out the income inequality. Lots of people think that the saying is "money is the root of all evil" and while that may be true, the actual saying is "the love of money is the root of all evil". And someone once pointed out that "it would be easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven". Never having been financially wealthy, I'm not too worried about that, but it's mostly that I don't believe in heaven that way. I don't know about you but my morals would never allow me to be affiliated with a party that would cheer for the death of a person simply because he or she had no insurance. Talk about not having any morals. By the way, I have been blessed with a wealth of good family and friends. That, to me, is the best kind of wealth.

If you think the right have any grounds to impeach the current president, Chris Christie has a bridge he would love to sell you. Honesty is the best policy. Stop talking about non-existent "scandals" and maybe we can get back to the business of being the best country on this planet. Vote Democratic, the only true moral choice. And could one right winger actually give one instance where our president has violated the Constitution or stop saying he has.

Now, about Planned Parenthood: yes they sometimes advise women to have abortions but it's a very small percent of what they do. My only experience with them was back in the 70s. My girlfriend was prescribed birth control pills because she was having problems during her period, her regular doctor wouldn't prescribe them. It worked. I know it's hard to believe but everything is not always, or in most cases really, like what the right wing says it is. Really try to do a little more research than reading some demonstrator's signs; you might learn something. I will say this, I am pro-choice, and anti abortion; as a man it is the only opinion I feel I can have. I don't believe in abortion as a means of birth control, but I also don't think forcing a young woman to have a child under any circumstances is a good idea. Yes I understand that the right wing feels that rape, incest, and child molestation are "just another means of conception" as was so aptly pointed out by Paul Ryan. I don't happen to agree with that, maybe because I feel those three things are horrible crimes, if a woman or child becomes pregnant due to one of them it should be her choice, for an adult and just common sense to abort the pregnancy of a child, with as little drama as possible.

Lastly, to the gentleman who wrote a letter in support of your local drug dealer. Does Mr. Sellow believe that illegal drug dealers check IDs when they sell a bag of weed? I feel I can say with some certainty that they do not. And for a state that avoids a sales tax by selling booze, the real gateway drug, it is to me pretty silly to be against pot being sold legally, and taxed on top of that. If you think people aren't smoking it now, you should really open your eyes.
