    Shame on CT for being a refuge state

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg called Roe vs Wade a “heavy-handed intervention that is difficult to justify and … has provoked, not resolved conflict.” A firestorm of protests with the call of “My body, my choice” is ubiquitous. But the real question is: Whose body are we talking about? Science tells us that the unborn has its own body and DNA from the moment of conception/fertilization.

    Abortion treats the pre-born as property. These defenseless, innocent beings have not broken any laws or harmed anyone but are sentenced to a barbaric end. The Supreme Court has gotten it wrong in the past and has thankfully reversed its decision on the legality of slavery and, most recently, Roe vs Wade. The 14th Amendment explicitly upholds the right to life. However, Justice Blackmun, who wrote the majority opinion on Roe, ignored this fact, and instead “found” a right to privacy which is not found there.

    I am appalled at the stance of our our political leaders in expanding abortion beyond Roe and making Connecticut a refuge state. Why not support non-violent ways of caring for infants and children and those pregnancy centers that do just that at no cost?
