Overturning ‘Roe’ leads to problems

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

If anti-abortion activists from Toledo and elsewhere are successful in their efforts to have Roe vs. Wade overturned and abortion outlawed, many children will be born each year to women and girls who don’t want them (“Rally draws thousands to capital; March decries landmark 1973 decision to legalize abortion,” Jan. 26).

Will members of the Toledo Catholic Diocese adopt these unwanted babies and provide them with good homes, or give the financial support that the mothers may need? Have they thought about the consequences of the possible success of their cause?

Opinion shifts to anti-abortion

There is a large and growing shift in public opinion toward favoring the views of the pro-life movement.

A 2012 Gallup poll shows that the “pro-life” label was preferred by 50 percent of respondents, compared to 41 percent — a record low for the “pro-choice” group.

As a result of greater awareness and education, the shift against abortion rights is growing dramatically among pro-life young people and college graduates.

In Ohio, more than 145 pregnancy centers offer care to pregnant women as well as formula, diapers, and clothing once the child is born.

There is greater acceptance of adoption as a loving option. Nationally, for every child available to be adopted, 36 families are seeking to adopt.

We at Greater Toledo Right to Life are proud to increase awareness of the pro-life message.

Government must care for veterans

Every time I see a television advertisement asking for money for the Wounded Warriors Project, my heart breaks. Why do wounded military veterans need an organization to support their needs?

Shame on the U.S. government for not finding the funds to take care of our wounded warriors and families for life. Isn’t it enough that these Armed Forces veterans have given arms, legs, and eyes, suffered brain damage, and made a host of personal sacrifices so each of us can live freely?

Dog warden, zoo can help each other

How’s this for a synergistic relationship between the Lucas County Dog Warden’s office and the Toledo Zoo? After the warden kills a dog, meat from the animal should be sent to the zoo to feed its animals.

When an animal at the zoo dies, the meat from it should be sent to the dog warden’s office to feed the dogs.

Any excess meat should be sent to homeless shelters.
