A memorial service will be held June 19 as part of the "Juneteenth" holiday observance in Washington. Hopefully it will include a showing of the movie "MAAFA 21," which is about the effects of abortion on the black community.
Why is anyone surprised by President Obama's announcement that he is for same-sex "marriage" ("Gay marriage gives Romney chance to fire up base," Web, Sunday)?
Robert Boudreaux's recent letter to the editor should inspire all compassionate people ("Abortion disproportionately hits blacks," Thursday).
On Thanksgiving Day, Americans thanked God for having greatly blessed this nation and many of us as individuals. But if you were born after Jan. 22, 1973, you should thank your mother, too: You are here only because of her decision to give you life.
I am amazed by the suggestions in the opinion column "Catholic voters hold the power to change elections" (Commentary, July 5) about ways Republicans might reach Catholics. The Bible and the Catholic Church's stance against abortion should be enough to assure that no Catholic or Protestant would ever vote for any candidate from the pro-abortion Democratic Party.
Three cheers for South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard ("South Dakota sets 3-day wait for abortions," Nation, Wednesday). Many pregnant mothers, especially teenagers, aren't fully informed of the procedures involved in an abortion and what will happen to their unborn child when it is killed.
The article "GOP blocks moves on gays, immigration" (Page 1, Sept. 22) reveals a division in the country along party lines. This results from the party members having different gods that set the standard for what is right or wrong. Most Republicans find God's words in the Bible; most of the Democrats look to the government, and especially the Supreme Court, for guidance.
In a Friday Commentary column, Deroy Murdock quoted the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) as saying that the Tea Party would "push our country back to the pre-civil rights era" ("NAACP has forgotten what a racist is," Opinion). Actually, it is the Democratic Party with its socialist agenda that would push the country all the way back to the plantation and slavery era.
