To The Daily Sun,
Nick Vazzana is a partisan liberal/progressive whose one sided letters I typically read with a grain of salt. However, his "defense" of Planned Parenthood in the face of extremely disturbing videos of Planned Parenthood doctors callously describing the harvesting of fetal tissue from late term abortions is beyond the pale.
Have you no shame, Mr. Vazzana? Are abortions on demand in all circumstances the only possible position that you can accept? I submit that the callous disdain for human DNA tissue regardless of whether it is susceptible to life outside the womb is disgusting and revolting, and cannot be masked by the common cliché of a woman's right to choose.
The country is split fairly evenly over abortion rights. The U.S. Supreme Court has permitted abortion in early stages of pregnancy for over 40 years. However, the technology of today, with ultrasounds and heartbeats, should give a person some hesitancy to terminate a pregnancy, even should a woman choose to do so with her conscience and her doctor. But when the pregnancy advances to the late stages and the fetus is crushed in certain ways to harvest body parts, I submit that many people of good faith draw the line.
It is entirely reasonable to request that taxpayer dollars not be spent on Planned Parenthood because of the processes that have been exposed. Public funding for women's reproductive rights can be made to other organizations who do not engage in such controversial, and I would say despicable and barbarous practices.
