Letter: Left-wing press refuses to show why abortion is wrong

For the publisher:

Recently, I read Thomas Sowell’s book, “Race and Culture: A World View”. Sowell, in a chapter titled “Race and Slavery” laments that the “particular institution” of slavery is not so special as we have been led to believe.

Throughout recorded history (and probably in prehistoric times) slavery has been with mankind. Sowell describes this persistent evil as graphically and consistently as I have ever read.

As Sowell described the institution of historically global slavery, I couldn’t help but think of a modern (also historically global) institution: abortion.

Now do not run away because I have raised this painful subject! This is what people did in the 18th century when slavery was rightly condemned. It took almost 200 years before most people came to a consensus that slavery was something to be ashamed of.

I expect my readers to all remember the scenes of devastation during Hurricane Katrina. We have seen George Floyd’s tape countless times. We have recently seen planes depart from Afghanistan countless times. We react to video in a way that the written word can never compare.

No TV channel will broadcast the process of an abortion. Today, most people would rather be blind to the destruction of innocent people in the womb. It may be a few hundred years before the world has the courage to condemn this institution, but in time evil will be seen for what it is.

Although it disgusts me to do so, but because the dishonest press refuses to release such images, I submit the following:

Pregnancies at an early stage (up to 10 weeks) are eliminated by taking two tablets. Mifepristone (RU-486) ​​is ingested one day and misoprostol the next, allowing the mother to flush her child down the toilet and down the drain.

According to the Guttmacher Institute, this occurs in 36% of medical abortions.

At 12 weeks, suction abortion is the procedure of choice. A suction catheter is inserted into the mother’s uterus, and a suction machine with a force 10-20 times stronger than a household vacuum cleaner is turned on.

The unborn child, whose body is tiny and fragile, is violently torn by force. Gutmacher reports that most abortions occur during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.

From 13 to 24 weeks gestation, the most common abortion method is D-and-E (dilation and evacuation). The abortionist uses sopher forceps to dismember the child’s limb from the torso in utero, then completes the abortion by using a curette to scrape the uterus for any remaining pieces.

Guttnmacher reports that 25 percent of abortions in the United States are committed between 9 and 12 weeks of pregnancy, although D and E abortions are also committed up to 24 weeks. Abortions after 21 weeks represent 1.2 percent of total abortions.

Induction abortion is the method performed after 25 weeks. The abortionist injects a substance into the unborn child to cause cardiac arrest, then induces labor over a period of two to three days. Meanwhile, the mother will carry her dead baby inside as she prepares to give birth. We are sure that in this procedure the child can feel pain.

Television could broadcast this misery like other tragedies, but it will refuse to do so. Now that you know the truth about this procedure, will you understand that abortion always stops a beating heart and that, like “Dred Scott”, Roe vs. Wade’s days are numbered? The Supreme Court knows that what I have shared with you is the truth.
