In response

Thank you Morning Star for being “archaic” enough to publish a photo of people peacefully taking a stand against abortion. I respectfully submit a question to Sasha Byrnes, whose Oct. 18 letter to the editor made it clear that they do not support pro-life. Much to our society’s downfall, is not our modern era’s definition of progression that we tolerate all viewpoints and lifestyles?

I do not agree with name calling, aggressive debates or signs that are meant to be rude and degrading. As is noted in the picture from the Oct. 4 edition, this was a peaceful display with no crude or degrading signage. If it is OK to use public means, such as writing a letter of criticism to the editor), to show support for pro-choice, why is it archaic and non-progressive to hold up a sign that reads, pro-life or human rights for both?
