Letter to the Editor: On Pro-Life Legislation

To the Editor:

In response to those who lament the pro-life legislation sweeping our country, arguing that a woman should have sovereignty over her own body, they miss or ignore the real issue. No one disputes a woman’s right to decide what happens to her body. The truth is that the baby in her womb is not part of her body, but is a distinct human person. Every cell in the human body carries the identical DNA. The baby’s genetic code is the combination of genes from the father and the mother, and is not the same as either parent. Even the heartbeat is separate and distinct from the mother’s.

The Supreme Court’s 1973 decision affirming the right to abortion differs little from the Supreme Court’s 1856 Dred Scott decision which determined that Scott (a black slave) was not a “citizen” endowed with rights under the Constitution, but rather was nothing more than the property of his owner.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
