Your Opinion: Rationalizing on topic of abortion

Dear Editor:

I must once again broach the subject of abortion.

In 1973 our Supreme Court declared that murdering conceived children was quite all right.

The godless in our society won their argument because as the Bible says in 2 Timothy 4: 2 they had itching ears, i.e. telling each other what they wanted to hear to avoid the consequence of truth.

Another way to express it is called rationalizing. I write this because as a child of about 7 years old my mother aborted a sibling of mine. There were no health issues involved. My parents did it as a matter of convenience because there were already four of us.

I am in my late 60s and I’ve never been able to get it out of my mind that one of my siblings to be was murdered, I.e. aborted.

I write this because conception can be avoided by contraception and moral behavior.

I do know that some Christians don’t believe in contraception however I do believe it is preferable to more murdering of the conceived.
