I think the anti-abortion movement is an attempt by a group of people to force everyone to obey the group’s religious view regarding abortion. I don’t think anyone should be forced to obey someone else’s religious views on abortion or anything else.
It seems to me that those who oppose abortion should encourage the use of contraceptives, vasectomy and other means of preventing pregnancy when there is no desire to have a baby.
There is no Christian point of view regarding abortion because many Christians oppose abortion while many other Christians do not oppose it. I do not object to Christians believing that abortion is wrong, but I strongly object to such people trying to make it extremely difficult or impossible for other people to have abortions.
Everyone should be free to decide if they want an abortion.
Letters to the editor are an essential part of community dialogue, and the News Tribune attempts to publish all op-eds that meet our requirements.
Letters are limited to 300 words, must be the original work of the author, and must be exclusive to News Tribune. Letters are edited for style, space, accuracy and courtesy. Letter writers are limited to one submission published every 30 days.
With rare exceptions, the News Tribune does not publish poetry; letters that are anonymous, defamatory or that attack other authors; consumer complaint letters; thank you letters or letters generated by political or special interest campaigns.
We will consider exclusive local view columns of around 600 words or less. Authors should possess unique ideas, and their comments should demonstrate greater knowledge of their subject than letters.
