I was amused at your cartoon about abortion (printed in the Aug. 29 edition of the McAlester News-Capital). Media and their liberal bias sometimes gets out on the fringe that they expose their behind. When people in your reading are mostly pro-life, it is a lost cause to defend the democrats on abortion. Conservative democrats and republicans believe that life begins at conception. (If not then, when?) That to terminate a pregnancy should be the last resort and not the first. Liberal thinkers believe in abortion on demand. They say that as early as the morning after pill until as late as the baby coming out of the birth canal, this “fetus” is at the mercy of the woman. The reasons for abortion range from inconvenience to gender. Yes, dear media friend, we are ready to have a discussion on the matter of abortion.
