Regarding the guest column “Nevada not the place for personhood initiative”:
State Sen. Sheila Leslie writes: “Stay out of our bedrooms and our personal lives …” The “young ones” might respond: “No one wants to stay out of your bedroom more than us!” Oh, but wait, these fetuses cannot yet speak and may never have that opportunity. In fact, they are the voiceless whom the state of Nevada should protect.
Leslie further implies that Nevada has spoken once and for all. I would say, having a life and voice: 1) “Thank you, God, that my economically devastated mother and father at that time would not even consider this option,” and 2) to Leslie, “Not only can you not speak for the nearly 10,000-plus Nevada babies aborted every year — some in barbarically torturous ways — you may not speak for this woman.”
One can only hope and pray that Nevadans grow a conscience and recognize that abortion is opposed to natural and divine law and reverse that horrid referendum of 1990.
Finally, Leslie seeks to kill two birds with one stone, one being a Republican, and changes pro-life to “anti-choice.” Those who embrace life from conception wholly respect free will, although we continue to counsel for spiritually and corporeally healthy lifestyles. Where we differ is when innocent young ones suffer and die for the folly of their mothers and fathers.
