Have respect for all, even if you disagree
I am pleased that Steve Lopez chose to reply to my letter [“Abortion still heinous, godless,” The Reader’s Voice, Feb. 8].
I felt like a dignitary having my name mentioned so often in his letter [“Don’t approve of abortion? Don’t have one,” The Reader’s Voice, Feb. 22].
Lopez uses words that need to be defined. This I was taught in the course on logic in college. Then we would be on the same page to discuss “life begins at conception.”
The [abortion-rights] platform is adept at discovering words that smother the truth about abortion. It cuts off life from a [fetus]. Lopez gave his views in an objective manner.
To conclude, he chose to become subjective with an attack on me and my religion and lastly, embarrass me because I reject gay and same-sex marriage.
Pope Francis made the comment that he respects everyone in their personhood – creatures of God, our father, and may disagree with their actions and words.
