Letter: Choose wisely about sanctity of human life, she says

TO THE EDITOR: "Faithful to the 'self-evident' truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed. We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and endorse legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment's protections apply to unborn children. We oppose using public revenues to promote or perform abortion or fund organizations which perform or advocate it and will not fund or subsidize health care which includes abortion coverage."

"Strongly and unequivocally support Roe v. Wade and a woman's right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay. We oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right. We also recognize that health care and education help reduce the number of unintended pregnancies and thereby also reduce the need for abortions."

What is a partial birth abortion: "If the baby is delivered feet first, the head is crushed with forceps or pierced with scissors (allowing the brain to be suctioned out by vacuum aspiration). If the baby is delivered head first, scissors are used to pierce the top of the head as soon as it appears at the cervical opening."
