LETTER: Beachcomber is insipid, editor won’t print earlier letter

In response to Terry Peretti: When does human life begin?

Here on Vashon it really doesn’t matter; there’s no abortion clinic. Our community is perfect for the pro-lifers.

I had written a well thought-out response to Terry Peretti’s question, but the Beachcomber editor didn’t like it; she said it was too shocking. Sadly my letter had to be aborted.

We may all be scarred for life since what I had to say won’t get said. I only wanted to put humanity in its place and suggest a solution for unwanted pregnancy.

Hopefully it’s not too shocking to say I’m pro-abortion. How would you like to be born by a woman who didn’t want a kid or couldn’t afford one? For heaven’s sake, use your abortion right.

What Vashon needs is an abortion mobile (an ambulance would suffice); that way, if you’re a pregnant young woman, you can dial 911, and the clinic comes to you.

What I wonder is how many editorial opinions we don’t get to read because some newspaper editor didn’t like what was written. I know a lot of people who won’t read The Beachcomber; it’s too insipid.
