To the editor: Is violence a mental health issue?

Until our society better understands the relationship between extreme emotions, including intense anger and despair, and criminal activities, there will always be a relatively small group of children and adults who act out violently with guns, knives, machetes, and other weapons.

This, unfortunately, cannot be stopped without a psychological understanding of how these incidents occur, no matter how strict our laws and their consequences become.

Abortion is not health care

It is disheartening that ProMedica, an organization that does so much good within our community and prides itself on “improving health and well-being,” would intentionally choose to align with an abortion provider, where terminating life is the goal. That is hardly commensurate with improving health and well-being.

Those who are responsible for making the decision to allow a transfer agreement with Capital Care, will now be complicit in the death of every child that is aborted there. Abortion is not health care and leaves only destruction in its path.

How very sad that some at ProMedica now have their hands dirty by officially making it possible for that destruction to continue.
