We are not "dictating"

A letter to the editor by the Moncton Right to Life vice president, Cathy Jensen. Published in the "Forum" section of the Times and Transcript newspaper on Monday, June 7, 2010.
Letter had much irony

To The Editor:

I am writing in response to Annie Crawford-LeBlanc s letter on Friday.

I find her letter interesting, if not a bit ironic.

She starts out stating that she is "neither advocating nor discriminating against abortion," and then goes on, with an undertone of polite anger, to talk about how people have no place "dictating" a person's choice regarding abortion.

With this letter full of political "correctness," she equates the killing of an unborn child, to walking into a foreign country and dictating how that country should be run.

I see no comparison here.

I have been involved in the pro-life movement for years. While the media likes to paint a disturbing picture of the typical pro-lifer, "dictating" our views down the throats of many; we are, in actuality, quite a different ilk.

My pro-life engagements have involved peaceful prayer and witness, along with hundreds, at times thousands, of other supporters.

In exchange, I have been spat on, harassed, had coat hangers thrown at me, air horns blown in my face, coffee thrown at me, hand gestures, and been pushed — the list goes on.

Why do some people with a pro-choice view have such anger?

Contrary to what Ms. Crawford-LeBlanc states regarding science (she says it can support either side) I have yet to read any scientific document proving that there is no life within a child en utero! Please enlighten me!

I urge Ms. Crawford-LeBlanc, and any others, to go on You Tube and search for the documentary, "Silent Scream."

This is an actual ultrasound of an abortion being performed.

If you can watch this and not feel anything for the little, precious life, with an open-mouthed scream, begging for someone to protect them from their imminent death, then I really have no words.

I can only pray.

I pray for these babies, and for their moms, who make these difficult decisions and end up suffering the effects of abortion.

Cathy Jensen,
