Advocating Life

Dear Editor;

Why does Vice President Al Gore, Hillary Clinton and Anthony Weiner support partial birth abortion when Senator Moynihan calls this procedure infanticide? Former Mayor Ed Koch says it’s wrong. The NY State Quinnipiac College poll of March 26, 1998 states that 77 percent of NY state residents want partial birth abortions banned except if needed to save the life or protect the health of the mother. Former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop says it is never necessary and could be harmful to the mother’s health. A group of 300 specialists in maternal, fetal, and pediatric medicine known as Physicians Ad Hoc Coalition for Truth say partial birth abortions are never medically necessary.

There are other methods that would save both the mother and baby. If I know these facts why doesn’t the Vice President, Hillary Clinton and Anthony Weiner?

Thomas Jefferson said, "The care of human life and happiness and not their destruction is the first and only legitimate object of good government."
