All Abortion Is Wrong

March 22, 2019

Editor: “Day of Mourning” rallies were held in response to several pieces of legislation that were enacted recently allowing abortion at any time during a pregnancy. I’d like all legislators and judges to note that the Declaration of Independence, which is the basis of the U.S. Constitution, states that all humans are “created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life.” Right now, you are thinking “What gives this guy the right to tell me about abortion?” It has been said that if you don’t speak up about an issue, you are taking a position. I feel obliged to speak out now on behalf of those millions of infants who have not been and will not be allowed to speak in the future. I was born after 25 weeks of my mother’s pregnancy. The doctors gave me a 10 percent chance of survival. As is obvious, I did survive and have been to many interesting places and met many interesting people in the past 66 years. It is my opportunity and obligation, on behalf of all of those unborn babies to say: All abortion is wrong at any time. Dave Sabestinas WILKES-BARRE
