Positive life march was in contrast to anti-Trump nastiness

To the editor:

Along with one of the letter writers in the February 2 Enterprise, I would like to commend the paper on the very positive presentation regarding the participation of local young people involved in the Right to Life March both here and in D.C. Seeing the photos of the smiling faces surely brought smiles to the faces of many of the paper’s readers.

My husband and I joined other Michiganians in the 1998 and 1999 marches and were inspired at that time by the young and old alike at the orderliness and respect of such a massive group of like-minded people. I hope this year’s attendees will treasure memories of the event as we do.

The March for Life was a pleasant contrast to the “Nasty” Women’s March that preceded it featuring foulmouthed celebrities and all manner of vulgarity in behavior, signs, etc. even among children participating. The rioters and most outrageous were likely paid activists, but others who were highly critical of Trump for his language and behavior may have come out primarily to support “rights for humanity” including tax dollars for Planned Parenthood and women’s right to abortions, equal pay, etc. but their message was lost in the emphasis on anti-Trump nastiness. The march was an embarrassment.

To end on a happier note, kudos to those who encouraged and joined the young people who marched for a positive cause with smiling faces and happy hearts.

Re: what was called “draconian reach” (2/9):

The proclamation was in compliance with the 1952 McCarran-Walter Act. The meaning is clear and has been applied by previous presidents with no outrage. The Democrats are simply using the Judiciary as a weapon against Trump. There was no respect for the Rule of Law in the stay imposed by activist Judge Robart. Shame!

Yep, you are only safe when you are a fetus. After that you are on your own!

I have but one request of you

I have but one request of you "lifers" and that is that you pay for the entire costs of raising each and every life you save from abortion. That includes every meal, diaper, clothing and all eductation costs until the child reaches age 26. When you do, you then have the moral authority to be self-righteous.
