Letter To The Editor: Ironic Proximity Of Dates

To the Editor:…In the U.S., it is terribly ironic that two opposite ends of the spectrum concerning human rights occur so close to each other in January: Martin Luther King’s birthday and the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. Martin Luther King’s birthday represents the culmination of ending the last vestiges of legally denying full human being status to people because of their race while the Roe v. Wade decision represents the legalized partial- or non-human-being status being forced upon all unborn human beings simply because of their being inside their mother’s womb instead of outside their mother’s womb. There is no such thing as a partial or non-human being. If a human being is only considered a full human being after it leaves its mother’s womb, what was that human being one day, one hour, one minute or one second before he or she left their mother’s womb? What makes a human being a human being?
Slavery has not ended in the United States and will not end until all human beings are granted legal full human being status from the moment their life begins at conception through their death. We need a constitutional amendment for all unborn human beings so they can be freed from slavery and abortion murder.
