Prolifers rap Detroit Free Press editorial

In response to a Detroit Free Press editorial which labeled legislative action against abortion as "stupid," "tiresome" and "a distraction," numerous prolifers wrote to the Free Press expressing their thoughts and providing reasoning for why they think prolife laws should be a priority.

Duane Lamers wrote:
A society that doesn't value human life is seriously flawed, and the bulk of anti-abortion legislation and regulation is designed to discourage abortion-on-a-whim and encourage more responsible behavior -- and to keep taxpayers from having to pay for such services.

Sharon Bannon wrote:
Your cavalier disregard for the rights of the unborn is stunning. How ironic that such a "tiresome" point of view was published on the eve of this nation's birthday -- a nation that was founded on a declaration of "certain unalienable rights," including "life."

The critical battle to secure this right for the smallest of our citizens who have no voice must continue, because I am certain that none of us, as "average Michiganders," wishes to live where murder is as unassailable as the very legislative priorities you purport to be the fish worth frying.
