What part of abortion is health care?

Letter to the editor

Posted: Friday, January 28, 2005

I want to commend the Juneau Empire for a far more balanced news report on the demonstrations in Juneau commemorating the 32nd anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion. At least you gave voice to the pro-life position whereas the major news services only gave voice to the pro-death (or anti-life) position.

Your article brings up a good question for Karen Kelly of the Juneau Pro-Choice Coalition. She is trying to raise funds along with partner Planned Parenthood of Alaska for a reproductive health care clinic in Juneau, but I ask, how can killing babies be reproductive health care? They are preventing reproduction, not making it healthier. They want to "care" for a girl or woman who is in the stages of reproduction by eliminating what they, by the grace of God, are reproducing. How can that be "giving reproductive health care?"

And what of the choices of the unborn female babies that are being aborted? When are they female enough to choose what happens to their own bodies?
