The pro-choice problem

  • Updated
  • Comments

To the editor: Pro-choice supporters seem to ignore the fact that to give a woman the right to kill a fetus is to take away the right of a possible future woman. The baby would have to grow up.

Perhaps these future women would like to have a life, too, just like the people at the pro-choice rally. Why take away their right to live? They already have a beating heart. Why is it right to take away the right for the fetus to have a heartbeat. To be pro-choice is to take away someone else’s right to live.

Open your eyes. See with your heart. It is beating right now.

It is not right to kill. Protect the rights of all people, the little ones, too.
