To The Daily Sun,
I always enjoy John Demakowski's letters. I saw the column from Scott Cracraft on "What Would Jesus Do?," and I thought of writing an answer to it. Then I said to myself, "Let John Demakowski do it. He can say it better than you can. "I am always heartened by his stance for God and biblical truths.
I will add my two cents, however. On the subject of abortion, one thing that has always galled me is that even people who are pro-abortion have come up with this concocted idea that if abortion is going to be curtailed at all, the time to do that is when the child could live outside the womb. This basically says that if the child can measure up to an adult standard — that of existing independently from the mother — that affords him some right to exist. Who is anyone to say to another human being, 'If you can meet my standards, you can live? Who is any adult to say that a younger life form is worth less? Where do you get off? What gives you that right? A fetus is at his stage of life, just as a child is at his and a grown-up is at his. No one has the right to say one of them is less worthy than the other.
The other thing I want to say is that I knew a woman a long time ago who was a liberal left-wing feminist with all the attitudes and opinions that go along with it. And one day when she talked about her abortion she cried for a good five minutes and kept saying, "I can't take it back. I can't change it. If I could I would, but I can't." So yes, women do often have deep regrets and this is one thing the lucrative abortion industry would like to keep from them.
