Free to your own opinion

If this group could succeed, it would set Canadian women back 60 years or more

On Sunday, Sept. 30 while driving through Courtenay I noticed a very large group of our citizens rallying with anit-abortion signs. Living in a free country where you have the right to protest and make your opinions known, I took notice.

Personally I believe, if this group could succeed, it would set Canadian women back 60 years or more. It could take them to a time period when they were forced to have an unwanted child or have to deal with backyard illegal abortions artisits which used to leave many women with serious infections or even death.

The main thing about the anti-abortion crowd was when I asked a few of them if you stop people from having abortions because of rape, health issues, incest or poverty how many would they personally be willing to adopt? Two? Three? Ten? All I got by asking this question was tight lips with no reply. Obviously most did not want these unborn children either. Perhaps they should do a little more thinking. To go through life unloved cannot be very much fun.
