To the Editor:

Headlines that made the front page a couple of weeks ago which read, Prop 5 Enshrines Abortion in State Constitution, sounds a little stupid to me.

To Kornbluh, Ann Pugh and others who feel that ending a life by abortion should be a part of the Vt. State Constitution, I would suggest they take a look at article six of the U.S. Constitution which clearly states, it shall be the supreme law of the land, and goes on to say, anything in the constitution or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding. The U.S. Supreme Court has the final say, and I am thankful we have judges there now with enough common sense to understand if life didn’t begin at conception there would be no birth.

When a women turns to abortion rather than building a strong family, her society has failed and is doomed to return to dust. Building strong families is a good first step in the fight for the Right to Be. We all have a Right To Be, in my humble opinion, and we as a society should nurture and strengthen our families to limit and hopefully eliminate abortion as it is practiced today.
