No comparison

To the Editor:

In answer to Steve Crnkovich’s letter of Dec. 31, “Embraced abortion.”

There is absolutely no comparison between abortion and the Sandy Hook tragedy. How dare he use the killing of the children of Sandy Hook as a comparison to abortion. His letter and his comparison illustrate an ignorance on the subject of abortion.

I would rather give a woman the option of abortion then force an unwanted child upon her. Unwanted, unloved children can be mistreated all their lives.

Abortion is legal in this country. This is a two-way street; men need to get it together and take responsibility for their actions. If you don’t want children, then get a vasectomy.
