Letter: Pregnant? Keep the child, if possible

Letter to the Editor graphic
We are part of The Trust Project.

Life begins at conception. We know that now and have known it for awhile. The little heartbeat of the baby is beating and embryo is growing. Once you are pregnant, you lost your right to choose. If you abort, you are murdering a human being. When a person kills a woman who is pregnant, that person is charged with 2 murders.

Keep the child if at all possible. If you carry the baby to full term and just do not have resources to keep him or her, give to the hospital. You have 3 days to change your mind. Give the baby up for adoption to parents who are desperately wanting a child.

We all have a brain — use it. If do not want a child, use contraception. Birth control pills are easy to take.

I urge everyone to vote against abortion. Let's get rid of Roe Vs Wade and Planned Parenthood.

What to read next
The first “paid” rounds of golf occurred on May 8, 1927 and I hope it continues in operation as an 18-hole course for another 100 years. My review of the report prepared by National Golf Foundation (NGF) on the city golf courses noted no justification to reduce it to a nine-hole course or to even consider closing the Soldiers Golf Course.
After my review of the 136-page report on the city-owned golf courses prepared by National Golf Foundation (NGF), I note no justification to reduce the number of golf holes or to consider closing Soldiers Golf Course.
This letter is in response to a letter written by Craig Martens published in the June 28 edition of the Post Bulletin. I have a point of clarification to his last paragraph. In 1926, Dr. Graham did NOT give this land to the City of Rochester. It is a fact, however, that he did own the land but it was purchased by the American Legion Post 92 of Rochester in 1924 from Dr. Christopher Graham.
Minnesota has a multi-billion-dollar surplus. Minnesota residents need help.
