Letter: Base abortion policies on choices freely made


I have thought about the Supreme Court’s recent overturning of Roe v. Wade. Couldn’t it be seen as a violation of the First Amendment, which states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion ….” Our nation was founded assuring its citizens freedom of religion, and there has never been a time when our various religious committees have agreed on what could be considered moral and lawful.

The First Amendment concludes “…or abridging the right of citizens to freely assemble and petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

Those who think to abort a fetus should be legal need now to vigorously work for reinstatement of that right.

The situation with which we are confronted promises a time of complicated and painful adjustment, especially for women, and it will not be resolved to everyone’s satisfaction. However, it should ultimately express a choice that has been freely made.
