Letter to the editor: What could be more racist than to kill an unborn child?

By MICHAEL T. GJEFLE | Ontario

As I listen to people today use the word “racism,” I pause to consider … what could be more racist than the evolutionary thought that I learned as a young person in public schools that the next step between the ape and the man was the black man?

What could be more racist today than to kill an unborn child in the womb, because the parent wants the opposite sex? What could be more racist than Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, who wanted to rid the world of minorities? What could be more racist than placing their abortion mills where there are lots of minorities (black and Hispanic). What could be more racist and cruel than to kill an unborn child of any color for any reason?

In this past year, with all the Black Lives Matter confusion, what could be more hypocritical than the killing of any unborn child of any color? I have read of the lives of children born out of rape, and to them, their lives mattered. With the coronavirus this year, we have a lot of talk about protecting people, especially the vulnerable. Who is more vulnerable than life in the womb?

We have a grandson, Gunner Jay, who was born stillborn just before Christmas. If you saw his picture, he was beautiful, and, oh, how I would have loved to get to hold him, but I will have to wait until I get to Heaven.

Was he a real person? Of coursehe was, yet how many babies die every day, killed in the name of choice, often paid for with taxpayer money. Folks, let’s not just talk about life and protecting the vulnerable, but let us protect the most vulnerable, and that is life in the womb. Thanks for listening.

    Response to Don Foy:

    Your last sentence in your letter is, “I don’t see how a person can be an immigrant-hating, gun-waving, gay-bashing Trump supporter and call him or herself Christian.” The First Amendment gives you the right to put out that statement.

    I’m usually skeptical when someone who’s not a Christian explains to someone who is what Christian behavior ought to be. It’s like a conscientious objector telling a soldier what he or she should have done in battle.
