Speak Out: Abortion debate

Readers reacted to a commentary by the Rev. Jack Clark headlined “Abortion tearing apart country’s very foundation”

• The founding fathers ensured a separation of church and state. — Cheri Zatko-Coseglia

• Not true. Separation of church and state is not found in the Constitution. It was a letter drafted to the Danbury Baptist Association. There is no separation of church and state. Thats why there is prayer in congress and in the oath of office, they say, “so help you God.” — David Price

• These laws further degrade the moral fiber of America and ignore the need for individuals to take responsibility for their actions. — Dave McGuigan

• Women have been having abortions long before any laws made it available to them in safer environments. Without laws to protect the mother’s right to abort, they will do what they have always done and have abortions anyway in unsafe environments and performed themselves or by unqualified people. Abortion rights laws provide a much safer environment to help protect the life of the mother, but pro-lifers don’t really care about the “life” of the mother. — Jim Kelley

•Until you walk in another’s steps, you have no reason to criticize their lives. You don’t know what they are going through. — Kathy Spring Jordan
