I am writing this in response to the June 9 letter “Standing Up for Values.” I think about the people I know that were expecting a baby and shared their experience after their ultrasound — the excitement of seeing the baby moving and hearing the baby’s heartbeat.
I think about holding one of the new grandbabies we have the pleasure of having. I feel a real sense of a miracle just taking place.
I read the letter about women’s rights, and I am appalled. I believe women have the right to not have children if they so choose. They always can get a procedure or take birth control if they don’t want children.
I believe a moving baby with a heart beat is a living person. What about their rights?
