Agrees with 'profound' letter on abortion rights

Published: Saturday, March 1, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

I am in total agreement with the letter from Steven A. Lopez ["Don't approve of abortion? Don't have one," The Reader's Voice, Feb. 22]. Exactly.

Thank you, Mr. Lopez, for "picking the pencil back up." What a profound rebuttal to Mr. Becker's ideas and assumptions.

And, the best question yet (worth repeating) to Becker and like-minded people who criticize our president in his fight for equal rights, gay rights, and women's rights. It is, "Have you ever thought that maybe the reason our freedom is in jeopardy, is because of people who oppose it as you do?"

No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
