Giving birth to a baby won't ruin your life

Letter to the editor

Posted: Thursday, March 31, 2005

There is an abortion clinic that is knocking on our daughters' and granddaughters' door to help get theirs performed. It saddens me to see that our community has decided to help expand the multi-million dollar business of abortion right here in Juneau.

We are allowing our children to have sex education given in our schools that promotes sexuality and choice with no parental consent needed. As one prominent abortion provider president says, "We've taught our children in driver's education what to do in the front seat, and now we've got to teach them what to do in the back seat" and has condemned abstinence-only sex ed programs as unacceptable.

The question remains, why are we allowing abortion advocates into our schools to teach our children their values? There's an organization that plans on visiting the schools, "She will be visiting the middle and high schools to deliver age-appropriate and medically accurate information" and more than likely the grade schools next. It's because we have allowed this to happen through our voting.

I just watched a 12-week abortion procedure, it was grueling beyond belief and painful to watch and painful for the woman. If you are considering an abortion, ask for a video to see the procedure; they don't want you to see it.

There are other choices than abortion. There are wonderful families that are state-approved to raise your baby. Giving a child up for adoption is the greatest gift you could give to a couple that isn't able to have its own. You can interview, have no contact, little contact, or just annual pictures sent. You do a have choice; choose a wonderful life of opportunity for your baby, and don't send them to an abortionist.

A baby will not ruin your life; it can be an enriching experience that will change your life forever. It's your choice. There are organizations that can help you with counseling, clothes, and funding to help you adjust. We will personally adopt any babies that are not aborted; we have been approved by the state.

I also think it's appalling that 18 doctors have volunteered to perform the abortions who have taken a vow to preserve life. God bless all.
