Dignity of Human Life
Letter to the Editor, NH Union Leader, December 19, 2021:
Friday’s UL says a Concord abortion center “stopped performing ultrasounds for all women who sought abortions, and this failed to lead to bad outcomes.” That’s a pretty sick twist on a procedure that poisons, burns or dismembers a living human baby until he or she is dead.
Abortion ALWAYS has a bad outcome for the child. It causes deep and lasting scars on the women who would have been mothers, too. It decimates fathers who are shut out of the decision-making process, plus grandparents, aunts, uncles, sisters and brothers. It stains our entire society with the blood of innocents.
I urge our elected representatives to stand tall and uphold New Hampshire’s restriction on abortion after 24 weeks, as signed, including the ultrasound when it is necessary. Ultrasounds are routine, non-invasive, and obviously essential if there is any question of the baby’s gestational age.
If you are pregnant and need help, please call the Penacook Pregnancy Center in Manchester, CareNet in Concord, or text the NHRTL Help Hotline at 313131. You and your baby have real options.
