TO THE EDITOR: Most abortions are unwanted or coerced, many forced.
“Choice” rhetoric overlooks this evidence, plus post-abortion harm, heartbreak and higher maternal death rates.
As far back as 1987, then-Surgeon General C. Everett Koop called for a government-funded study to assess abortion’s physical and psychological impact. Congress refused to authorize such a study.
To date, no major government study has ever been done on abortion’s impact, yet privately funded studies published in major medical journals indicate that most abortions are unwanted or coerced and abortion causes trauma, deaths, reproductive damage and other psychological and physical injury and illness. (See www.TheUnChoice.com for current research.)
Research published in a major peer-reviewed journal found that, among American women who had abortions, most felt rushed, 67 percent received no counseling, 79 percent were not informed about alternatives and 84 percent felt they did not receive adequate counseling before abortion.
Americans have a right to be fully informed about unwanted abortions and other risks and aftereffects. Abortion endangers the fundamental rights and lives of both the unborn and women.
TO THE EDITOR: My husband and I went to see the Susan Richard and Crew show at the Amos and Julia Theater in Jay last night, a very enjoyable night of music.
We have paid big money to go see big stars, and we have our own star right here. Her band is Eric Klotsko on the keyboard and Don Vacar on guitar. Together they made a wonderful group.
They played to a crowd of 102 people. It was one of our biggest coffeehouse concerts put on by Jems. There isn’t anything that she can’t sing. She performed songs by Pat Benatar, Fleetwood Mac, Jewel and did her own rendition of “Amazing Grace” and “Over the Rainbow.” It gave me goosebumps.
Everyone left happy and telling us they hope she will be back, and she will be for sure. It was one of the best shows we have ever seen. If you ever get a chance to see Susan in concert, be sure to go. You won’t be sorry.

TO THE EDITOR: The New York new Nazis have passed the most fascist-friendly, unconstitutional gun law in the nation and their success has driven them power mad.
Now, they propose to require liability insurance on gun owners, forcing us to pay for a constitutional right.
The government can require auto insurance because driving is not a right and auto insurance does not cover intentional acts; intentional misuse of a car is a criminal act handled by the courts after the fact. Requiring insurance against what you might do is not proper government but science fiction.
Politics in New York state hardly differs from politics in Egypt, The people elect fanatical dictators (the Muslim Brotherhood there, the Democrats here), and everyone but the anointed suffer.
Every vote you cast for a Democrat is a vote for for a maniac with delusions of grandeur who spits on the idea of government by, of and for the people and thinks The Party is not the party of God but God itself.
