Rightisright’s words are painful to read, but do fall in line with past statements that an armed revolution is past due, and that liberal media members should be hung. His writings. His hard heart and closed mind offers no solutions or comfort^.The cartoon itself is compelling. A fetus, carried to term, has enormous potential, but in our overworked, underpaid, over stressed, and under prepared society, the born child’s potential must overcome huge obstacles. My heart is anti abortion. I want all children conceived in love and wanted. I want all women to be healthy, educated, and prepared in every way to care for a new human being. My society does not prepare women in this way. It fails to care for infants that become children, teens, and adults and in that failure, creates humans unable to cope without all of the accoutrements of civilized society, much less raise a human. Too many Americans shouldn’t even be allowed to have pets, much less children.^For this reason, no matter my religious or personal wishes, and I do mean wishes, I will not vote to suppress abortion until my society shows me it is capable of caring for the people who are already born, already hungry for a life, and already in need of our respect, if not our money. And even then, as a male, I will be very, VERY circumspect on how I would apply such a vote.^In the Tomb of the Unknown soldier lies the body of a man who died for an ideal. He was probably scared, but brave enough to stand beside his brothers in arms. He probably had family, maybe even a wife and daughter, who never had the opportunity to stand beside his grave and say good bye. But he died on behalf of nation who says all people are created equal. Our nation is no longer that nation. The recent HSBC ruling where a bank provided aid to our enemies was protected from prosecution proves this. The 1.9 billion dollar fine they paid will take them 4 weeks to recover.We are in no moral or ethical position to demand a young woman dealing with an unwanted pregnancy to carry the fetus to term. We are arrogant to the point of hubris if we believe we have that right while allowing those in financial or political power to continue dividing and weakening our nation.It is an impossible issue and a very sad issue.Respectfully,C.
