Right to life

To the Editor:

We Americans have an important decision to make in this upcoming presidential election. What is at stake? Well, life itself.

This current president is determined to spread and strengthen a culture of death. And, to boot, he demands that everyone abandon their religious beliefs and consciences to pay for it!

Everything, all our rights, hopes and dreams are dependent upon the right to life. Without life, whatever economic policies or tax structures, whatever relationships with foreign governments put forth, have no meaning.

Our forefathers and every veteran of war who gave his/her life, fought, first and foremost, for the basic right to life, and then liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Can we even consider a president who does not stand for the most important principle upon which this country was founded? I don’t think so.
