I defy your letters to the editor

Planned Parenthood support shameful:

As a Christian and a believer in the truth of the entire Bible, I must respond to the Rev. Valerie Humphreys’ endorsement of Planned Parenthood (“Planned Parenthood is vital to Augusta,” July 7).

How can so-called clergy, having vowed before God and man to share the gospel of Christ, so blatantly disregard His word? The Bible clearly states in Exodus 20:13 that we should not commit murder. Planned Parenthood is responsible for aborting babies by the millions! No true “clergy” would support such outright sin.

I have at least one gripe with this, one major issue and a few nit-picks. First, you couldn’t find any more relevant scripture beyond the Ten Commandments? Second of all, they are not so-called clergy, they are clergy, even if they are not doing what you think they should be. The president is still the president, no matter how lousy of a job he is doing. Third, I propose that you justify this “millions” statement. The numbers I have at hand are from 2005 and the number (for the US in total, and includes those not performed by Planned Parenthood) is 1.21 million. That number is probably less now, as the number of abortions performed yearly has decreased. (Guttmacher Institute) Also, a baby has already been delivered. You mean fetus.


The Rev. Humphreys needs to spend a little time meditating on God’s word and evaluating her clergy credentials. To those in need of the services that the Rev. Humphreys speaks of, there are other agencies and programs available that do not encourage or offer abortion. Let’s support them instead of Planned Parenthood.

That’s fair enough, actually. That is a much better idea than bombing abortion clinics and murdering doctors. However, I do ask that you have the grace to let people choose without being too pushy about it. You have the right to speak your mind, so long as it falls under a category of protected speech. You’re bordering on libel in regards to the Reverend.
