An unborn child is not an 'option' or 'obstacle' To the editor: Those who cry out in support of abortion will say that it is the woman's moral right to choose. However, when we hear of a house that burns down and three out of four of the family die, those same people will say, “What kind of a moral God could take three lives like that?” - making the inference that God is immoral in his decision of who lives and dies. Yet, when a woman who supports “choice” gets to play God with another person's life in her womb, she has no problem in choosing who lives and who doesn't.

How many moms and dads do you know who leave town for their child's birth? That's what Jimmy and Angela Koontz are going to do, not because they want to, but because they have to. I first wrote about the Washington County couple on Feb. 1, after they described the plight of their unborn child, diagnosed with a condition called hypoplastic left heart syndrome, or HLHS for short. In simple terms, the left side of the heart does not develop properly. There is no cure, according to the Nemours Cardiac Center of the Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Delaware.
