The Jan. 27 editorial, Sink this misguided legislative proposal, criticizing a Florida bill that would restrict abortions, discriminates against tens of thousands of innocent, healthy, unborn girls and boys. These are your future customers, doctors, nurses, teachers, first responders, parents, relatives and friends.
The editorial’s basic argument rests on the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion. The justices claimed they did not know when life begins.
By denying the personhood of the victims, they also justified the Dred Scott decision legalizing slavery and the Nazis rationalized killing Jews. Let us learn from history because it does repeat itself.
