Letter: Where are the pro-life activists after birth?

Odegaard writes, "Every pro-life and anti-abortion activist should be fully financially responsible for the fetuses they are so concerned about after birth for it to have a quality of life. After all, you are the ones who wanted the baby."

In Ken Sims' recent letter to the editor , his sole focus is on the fetus and the woman is a non-entity.

Does your stance on abortion absolve you of all responsibility after the baby is born? Do you turn a blind eye, wash your hands, walk away and all is right with the world for you?

Those women who are forced to give birth should receive free day care. Check out those prices, Ken, if you can find an opening, free medical care, and free diapers, formula, and baby food. Every pro-life and anti-abortion activist should be fully financially responsible for the fetuses they are so concerned about after birth for it to have a quality of life. After all, you are the ones who wanted the baby.

Where will those people be when the mother has sleepless nights and has to get up to go to work, home sleeping?

Look at the small country of Ireland and what happened there. What makes you think things would be different in a larger country like the United States?

Backer writes, "Without a doubt, we’ve had our challenges. We’ve made a few mistakes, some serious and painful, along the way. Through it all, we’ve persevered; we’ve learned and become better. And we won’t stop learning and becoming better."
Kooyer writes, "Even though considered protected free speech by the U.S. Supreme Court, usurping our collective, beloved, enduring emblem of democracy for the purposes of making a political statement is something in which thoughtful Americans of good character simply do not engage."
Martin writes, "Our Jan. 6th Capitol riot is a dark and dismal day in recent history. The day was bad enough and our reaction is worse."
Carpenter writes, "My attitude toward political involvement has changed, for a lot of reasons. One reason is that I have gotten to the age where I’m thinking more about the world that I am leaving to my children and grandchildren."
