Those who oppose abortion ultimately will prevail
LETTER — Posted Nov. 21, 2005
Regarding "Abortion training: Hard to get?" (Article, Oct. 24/31): It is tragic that abortion, the deliberate killing of a human being both physician and mother have a duty to nurture and protect, not slaughter, has become a "routine" procedure in the eyes of most of medical academia and journalism. But it is not so in the eyes of most physicians.
Providentially, availability of abortion is declining, as more and more physicians and medical residents have access to information not controlled by medical school faculty and mainstream journalists. They can see for themselves that the fetus is simply a human being at a certain stage of development, and that killing that human being is no different morally from killing any human being.
I look forward to abortion continuing to decline in this country. The demographics seem to be driving this. After all, those who support legal access to abortions are supporting the killing of future citizens who might have voted for access. Those of us who are against abortions are out-reproducing those who are for it.
