To The Daily Sun,
The following letter was submitted in response to a letter in opposition to abortion written by Doris Morrissette which appeared in the Friday, Nov. 24, Sun:
My name is Denise. Please feel free to use it if you are going to reference me or my letters. I’ve tried to stop explaining myself once I finally realized that so many people only read what they want, remember what they want, and then use only what they need from this Letters section. So what that means to you is, you will only ever understand from your own limited perception. Which you did gloriously!
I’m also a mother and am deeply concerned for this human race and planet. I, too, am sick and tired of reading about so many killings and senseless deaths these days, both in the papers and online. I too wish for lasting peace and the return of civility toward everyone. I’m also tired of seeing so many stories in the paper regarding mothers and fathers killing their own children. Aren’t you as well?
Secondly, it’s obvious that you have not done any research into just what Planned Parenthood does for so many women and children. They do so much more than you claimed in your letter. As a matter of fact, they use government funding to offer a huge number of services to help many women and children ... instead of just "murdering" the unborn. They don't sit back and “rake in the money” from all those aborted fetuses that you and those that think like you want to believe.
Additionally, please tell us just what you consider "amoral." I imagine that for you, that could be women who get pregnant and aren’t married, or have no baby daddy around — correct? Do you still consider them “amoral” if they choose to carry full-term and have that "amoral" child? Or are they forgiven for all their sins?
Here is the most abused quote from the Bible, "Judge not lest ye be judged" - Matthew 7:1. So until you can walk in their shoes — or those of any other human being — please keep that passage in mind. And try to remember daily (if you can) that we all get to have choices in our lives every single day, whether 100 people agree or 1 million don't.
So, may we all have peace in our lives this day and the next. Because that is how God would like to see us all — at peace with one other and with ourselves. May everyone have a blessed Christmas and may we all have a peaceful 2018!
Denise C. Burke
