Letter: Costs of abortion

Front page news headline: Planned Parenthood crowdfunding nears $24K.

According to plannedparenthood.org, an abortion “Costs up to $1,500 in the first trimester, but often less.” Some simple math tells us that this $24,000 could be used for 16 human abortions. Of these 16, one could have grown up and invented something you need. Of these 16, one could have grown up and protected your freedoms. Of these 16, one could have become a doctor who someday saves your life.

Of these 16, one could have become a scientist who cures your disease. Of these 16, one could have joined your police or fire department. Of these 16, one could have become your son or daughter’s best friend. Of these 16, one could have become the person who saves your son or daughter’s life. Of these 16, one could have taught your son or daughter discipline.



Of these 16, one could have told a joke to make you laugh. Of these 16, one could have drawn a cartoon that puts a smile on your face. Of these 16, one could have told a story that brought a tear to your eye. Of these 16, one could have been your grandchild.
