In response to the letter to the editor from Sasha Byrnes regarding the newspaper criticized in the Oct. 18 issue, I am grateful the reporters of The Morning Star are willing and able to report on local happenings like the photo of the pro-life peaceful rally Oct. 1.
Many people don’t approve of the present situation where we have no law regulating abortion in Canada. Actually on recent surveys, more than 60 per cent of Canadians would like to see some protection for the unborn.
We are in a league with North Korea and China, the only countries with no restriction on abortion though China now tries to reduce the sex selection abortions. We don’t in Canada where girls are more often targeted for abortion just because a boy is preferred.
Legal abortion is allowed up to full-term here. I for one think this is a tragedy!
Sasha writes “Support progress please.”
Progress isn’t suppressing freedom of speech even if you believe it’s the minority or if the opinion goes against what you believe to be right. I would like to thank the paper for continuing to be a platform for freedom of speech.
