The other side to the abortion issue Dear Editor:

Thursday, April 6, 2006

I would like to comment on Lucy Ann White's misguided letter. She says she is pro choice because a young female died because of a back alley abortion. What she doesn't say is the woman had a choice; the child that also died didn't!

The pro choice crowd always talks about the deaths due to back alley abortions. They don't know how many and neither do I, but I do know one thing, they all had a choice. There has been over 53 million abortions since Roe V. Wade, and none of the babies killed had a choice! But this doesn't seem to matter to Lucy and others who are pro choice.

Her last statement is not only misguided but is incorrect. She says quote: "to criminalize the miracle of conception and delivery of a well child and mother is a sin." Lucy, the state of South Dakota or anyone else does not criminalize the delivery of a new born baby. What they are trying to criminalize is the prevention of delivery after conception due to abortion.

THAT'S THE SIN. Mitchell Beeson
