Letter to the Editor: Appalled by abortion plan

I was appalled when I first heard that our Premier Wade MacLauchlan announced opening an abortion clinic at our beloved Prince County Hospital. It was bad enough that his first act in power was to announce funding abortions on demand when that wasn’t even a part of his electoral mandate.

I am even more astounded that Islanders have not protested against such a wicked proposal being made in their home province; the killing of innocent babies in their mother’s wombs.

Surely this is inviting God’s curse upon our city, rather than His blessing. That is why I ask your readers to watch a YouTube video called “180” produced by Ray Comfort (Living Waters), as I hope it will lead us all to the truth we rarely hear on this subject. I hope they will write you after watching it and let you know what they think.

Why is it that Premier MacLauchlan had a provincial plebiscite on electoral reform, but did not consult Islanders about whether we want to fund abortion? 

If there truly is a need for a Women’s Health Centre on P.E.I. then it should be one that helps women - not one that kills their children. It should be a center where women wanting abortions could be lovingly shown how they can deliver and keep their baby, or if they still don’t want him or her, they can give their child up for adoption to a loving family that does.  

It is always wrong to encourage, fund, and assist women to kill their unborn children. Medical emergencies of choosing mom over her unborn child is not what we are talking about here, and in the extreme, but admittedly rare case of rape, it is the rapist that should be punished, not his innocent child.

Do Islanders really want $5 million (or more) spent on an abortion clinic, or are there better options for health care dollars that would benefit all Islanders, including the people in favour of the premier’s decision?  

Some better alternatives are: use that money for an Island-based cardiac unit so that dye-tests could be done here, rather than in Halifax or Saint John.  

Or hire extra technicians and staff so that our MRI and CT Scans can be conducted around the clock and on the weekends in order to clear up any backlog in the imaging waiting lists.

Or fund a centrally located Island-based Medivac helicopter that could quickly take off from the PCH or the QEH to get our loved ones to the bigger hospitals on the mainland should emergency strike.

Or enhance our Island’s cancer treatment center as cancer now strikes over 50 per cent of our homes. 

Anything would be better than a taxpayer funded clinic that is going to terminate the lives of innocent unborn Islanders.
