Not democratic

I find it quite ironic that Mr. Stocking should mention in his letter to the editor in the Oct. 27 issue of The Northern Star, “the apparent anti-democratic philosophy held by some pro-choicers.” The words “anti-democratic” coming from the pen of a man who believes that he and a few others should decide what a woman can do to her own body? That, my friend, is quite far from democracy. It’s bordering on the fascist. And, women aren’t “get(ting) off any easier” through an abortion. The decision and act of abortion is hardly an easy decision or act to make.

But I suppose the rights of women and non-Catholics are undesirable to a minister who still follows such an outdated, irrelevant and blatantly sexist book as the Bible.
