I am responding to Melodie Thomas about abortion (Mailbag, April 5). The question was asked where you would be if your mother had an abortion? As I am not a physician, I cannot say if the fetus feels pain. What I am about say will surely create anger and responses, but I will say it all the same.
We, as a race, are the worst thing this planet has ever seen! Our government does a terrible job of protecting children in our welfare system. We need to pass a written test and practical exam to drive a car, but any loser teenager or drug user or prostitute can have a child and be on welfare at the expense of the taxpayer while they party on. I cry for the loss of life, but I would gladly save those children from the life on this planet with people in charge.
I refuse to do the research to see the number of children abused, starved and tortured while rich men get richer. That number would be sickening. All children are at the mercy of terrible people, like gymnast doctors and old comedians and too many others to name.
I am glad a God exists to save those children from life at all on this planet.
Albany (April 15)
