Saying farewell to an old friend

blah,

I am a Republican pro-lifer who supports universal health care.

But abortion services are not health care.

Saying farewell to an old friend

Tony,

Abortion is the most important problem facing this country. Many would not equate unborn children with young children or babies, but "humaness" starts at conception.

The letter writer was only pointing out the obvious inconsistency in Obama's attitudes.

Altiere: Changes in PERS led to retirement

TimOthy,

As much as I am critical of the public sector employees, why the animus?

You or I would do the same thing. In fact, it would be irresponsible to their families to do otherwise.

If you want to campaign for future changes in the PERS system, go ahead - but don't criticize people, who like you, act in their own best interest.

The spirit of Christmas is one of strength and renewal

"Christmas has become so wrapped in tissue paper and ribbon, so dominated by commercialism, so identified with parties and merriment that it is easy to forget what we’re supposed to be celebrating."

How could you write an editorial like this without once mentioning the birth of Jesus?

theotherside,

I took your advice and read about schools in Finland. One glaring statistic stood out: Finland spends about 30 percent less per student than the United States.

It's the teacher unions that are responsible for this amazing disparity. We pay a ton a get mediocre results!

One girl’s survival raises questions about limiting fire power

"We must abolish the weapons and magazines that enable mass murder."

I have thought about this... and have come to the conclusion that we SHOULD NOT abolish the weapons and magazines that enable mass murder. Why?

1. There is no logical end to these limits - short of leaving responsible people with nothing but bows and arrows to protect themselves and their families. These weapons exist and are in circulation. Law-abiding people deserve to have the best weapons at their disposal to protect life and limb.

2. We really need more security at schools in the dangerous world we live in, not less guns.

3. We have already opened Pandora's Box with guns - and you realistically CANNOT prevent what happened in Newtown - no matter how you limit legal sales of guns and magazines.

I don't always agree with the NRA, but in this case I do.

Woman's faith and love of family help her overcome cancer

najjjj,

"I'm so very tired of people who take something positive, turn it upside down and inside out, in order to shove their religious and political beliefs down others throat."

My point was an editorial comment on our death-culture society, where abortion masquerades as legitimate health care. NOT a criticism of Heather's heroic journey.

And is being pro-life a religious belief? Yes. It only has been politicized because this crime has been made legal.

Woman's faith and love of family help her overcome cancer

Education,

NO, the doctors at the Clinic wanted to play God. They did not value Violet Grace's life at all. She was just a thing, a trinket to be toyed with.

You can hide all this evil in the mumbo jumbo "white coat" balony, but the facts don't lie - they would have killed Violet Grace like putting down a dog - if Heather had given the ok.

Woman's faith and love of family help her overcome cancer

This warm and fuzzy story has such a harsh edge:

"Heather was 12 weeks pregnant when she was diagnosed with cancer, and most of her physicians recommended she abort the pregnancy because of the probability her child would be damaged by the radiation and chemotherapy used to treat the cancer."

Why did the doctors recommend an abortion? Because Violet Grace might be "damaged."

We have reached the point in our society where children are mere "possessions," to be tossed out if they somehow don't meet some standard of "rightness."

Violet Grace, in our "Frankenstine world" was just a pawn to those doctors - to be sacrificed on the altar of hedonism.

And Heather was the potential executioner - allowed by a societal indifference to God's law forbidding killing - to extinguish her precious daughter - if she so desired.

This suggestion was not made by degenerate criminals in the darkness of prison - but by perhaps the most respected people in our culture: doctors!

May God forgive them for suggesting this killing - and may Violet Grace's life be a beacon of light in the fight for the right to life.
