Kay Syvrud, Hawley, Letter: Fans of Roe v. Wade under a delusion

This was "the week that was," as Mardy Berlinger pointed out in her letter of Jan. 27, another "anniversary" of the idolized-by-women's libbers Roe v. Wade decision.

This was "the week that was," as Mardy Berlinger pointed out in her letter of Jan. 27, another "anniversary" of the idolized-by-women's libbers Roe v. Wade decision.

Ah, yes, reproductive "rights," "pro-choice," "products of conception" and all those euphemistic and wishful terms to make it what it is not. Berlinger, and those who think like her, are under serious delusion.

Referring to Roe v. Wade, Berlinger stated: "It was the first step in the journey of women to take control of their reproductive rights." Take control from whom? I thought that reproductive rights were given by the Almighty God, but I forget we can't mention God or the Bible in connection to the right to have an abortion. Forget God, for heaven's sake.

Another letter Jan. 27 was by Jennifer Gader, who was horrified - horrified, I tell you, by the use of "hate language" published in an essay by Cal Thomas (who is coming to speak in Fargo on March 3). Thomas referred to abortion as "fetal holocaust." Since when did telling the truth turn to hateful speech?

Sorry, ladies, I'm not buying it. I believe the words of another: "My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance when there were none of them."

Those who enjoy scorning the word of God need to know that numerous biblical scholars of great eminence agree that "the lower part of the earth" is a Hebraic term referring to a woman's womb. So please save your attacks for something else.

Berlinger and Gader, I am not buying any of your statements.
