Letters to the Editor 8/2



Woman doesn't deserve prosecution



To the editor:

In the Daily Mail of July 27, I read a Pennsylvania woman is facing prosecution because of the way she disposed of a stillborn baby.

First, let me state I do not approve of the callous way in which the stillborn baby was disposed of by this young lady.

I must still object to this young lady facing criminal charges. She no doubt was very confused when her baby was born early; being stillborn added to her bewilderment.

I have a question, however. The baby was dead by natural causes. It was not partially delivered, its brain pierced and brought forth in an abortion method that, in my opinion, is an abomination.

The young lady did not kill or have her baby killed. Would she be facing five years in prison had a doctor killed it instead of nature?

There is something weird about a woman who delivers a stillborn, puts it in a dumpster being prosecuted when a doctor can partially deliver a child, pierce its brain, abort it and dispose of it in plastic bag.

I question if this aborted baby recieves a Christian burial. I feel it is more likely the plastic bag is thrown along with amputed limbs, legs and general body parts into a furnace used to cremate discarded body parts.

Is this a Christian burial? I think not.

The young lady needs help. Don't just let her go it alone.

For School Board, vote Ober, Wagner



To the editor:

I am writing to publicly support Bernadette Wagner and Roxanne Ober in their campaign to run for the Washington County School Board. They are two women who are dedicated to their families and show this by their willingness to be on the Board of Education and make a difference in our community.

I have known Wagner for seven years now and her children range in grade elementary through high school, so she has had her share of experience in this school system and will continue to be involved in the system for quite another few years to come. Her experience on the education committee at our church is another way she shows her continued support and dedication to her family, church and community.

On Election Day my vote will go to Ober-Wagner for the School Board. I hope yours does too.
