Letter: Abandon the abortion smokescreen

Editor:

This week’s political telephone survey caller asked me the age-old question, “Would you support abortion to save the life of the mother?” When I explained to her that that question is a smokescreen used to justify abortion, she seemed quite surprised. Let me explain.

Yes, there are cases where the baby has to be taken early to save the life of the mother, but in all of these cases those performing the procedure can try to save the life of the baby as well. There are no medical cases where the life of the child must be destroyed to save the life of the mother.

Before Dr. C. Everett Koop became surgeon general under President Ronald Reagan, I had the opportunity to hear him speak. He shared with us that while speaking to a group of more than 2,000 obstetricians and pediatricians he had asked if any of them had ever had a case where they had to destroy the life of the baby to save a mother’s life. Not one in the 2,000 had ever had such a case. Yes, these doctors had had cases where they had to take the baby early for the sake of the mother. But, in all cases they could try to save the baby as well. Sometimes, due to serious medical conditions, the baby could not be saved. But, they could always try to save both lives -- the mother and the baby.

Abortion always destroys the life of the baby. Medical science is long past the days when deliberately destroying the baby is ever necessary to save the mother’s life. Some small percentage of the time the child may not survive. But, always the doctors can seek to save the child.

This smokescreen of destroying a baby’s life to save the mother needs to be aborted from intelligent thinking.

Hey Grouch, Plan A or Plan B, what difference does it make. The mission is to avoid an inconvenience AKA pregnancy. Go ahead and enjoy yourself while keeping the population in check. :-)

Is it any less wrong to prevent the fertilization of an egg than it is to prevent the implantation of a fertilized egg ? In each case, you are interfering with God's plan for the continuation of the human race.
