Letter: Barbaric choices

I would personally like to thank each of the Garfield County commissioners for their decision to defund Planned Parenthood. I can hardly believe the negative letters featured with large headlines in the Glenwood Springs Post Independent. I can’t help but believe that the majority of citizens who have seen the recent reports concerning Planned Parenthood would agree with their decision. However, it appears that ones who disagree seem to have plenty of money to spare to fund whatever they choose, so even if the barbaric business had not been exposed, it shows that taxpayers’ money was not needed.

No culture has lasted long once they lose all moral consciousness concerning the sacrifice, torture and killing of their innocent and most vulnerable children. Is this not barbaric? Do the supporters of Planned Parenthood really understand that over 55 million unborn babies have been needlessly and mercilessly murdered in the last few decades in the USA?

Planned Parenthood has become an extremely wealthy industry as a result. They can pay an untold number of lobbyists at every level of government. There is no viable service provided to young girls by Planned Parenthood that cannot be obtained elsewhere, at probably less money and with far more education and true choice.
