Taking Sides on Abortion Issue
Thanks for Gerber’s excellent article. I had first read Thomas’ article on the same page and it had shot my blood pressure up past boiling. An emotional issue? Oh, you bet, Mr. Thomas! On the other hand, Dr. Gerber’s article was unimpassioned and salient.
“A fetus,” Thomas wrote, “is separate and distinct from the woman, though he/she is . . .” He? She? It has been programmed genetically to become a baby girl or boy, but is a fetus. Obviously Thomas and those of his ilk have never considered it possible that they “could be mistaken.” Zealously self-righteous, they are not taking issue with humane concepts but with moral freedom. How frightened they must be of women!
And how good of Gerber to restore my blood pressure to normal and redeem my sanity.
