Society has become ‘Race of Me’

To the Editor:

We have become the Race of Me. What makes it easier for me?

I support the personhood law because every life has value.

The opposition claims denying access to abortion will cause physical or psychological harm to the mother, they can seek help through medical care and therapy.

Incest and rape are violent and angry acts committed against women by misogynistic predators.

Abortion is a continuation of the violence on the innocent child and it is a further abuse on the woman.

When a mother’s life is in danger, the doctors should do everything possible to save both lives.


Parents who experience spontaneous abortions or miscarriages still mourn the loss of their child.

Anyone who has ever lost a loved one, regardless of the circumstances, has felt the heartbreak such a loss can be.

By advocating abortion, value of one life is being determined to have greater value over that of the other life.

Promiscuity and casual sex are no excuse for abortion (murder), and abortion should not be used as birth control.

Roe v. Wade is a misguided law presented as a women’s rights issue; my body, my choice.

Women, take control of your bodies by protecting and respecting your bodies.

Men must also act responsibly, respect their own bodies, and respect women’s bodies.

Look into the eyes of an expectant mother as she tells you about the first time she heard her baby’s heartbeat.

This is life with untold potential.

Sex design is an act of procreation; not a recreational sport. It is time for the Race of Me to realize that we are the Human Race; we all must respect ourselves and one another, and all human life.

Life is a precious gift that must not be undervalued or carelessly thrown away like yesterday’s garbage.
