Appreciated Andy Barton’s column
Andy Barton’s column, “The Unborn and the Undocumented,” was a lovely and uplifting surprise for me. After being dismayed by a column by the Bishop and hearing comments from my parish priest, which rather pointedly favored Trump solely because of the Democratic stance on abortion; how wonderful it was to get a balanced perspective on what “pro-life” really means. Mr. Barton urges us to support people throughout their lives, not just at birth and death. There are many who would oppose abortion but then, as Mr. Barton says, “turn our backs on the lives that those children will live”. These people may call themselves anti-abortion, but they are not pro-life.
