Letter: Protect unborn human child

By Marcus Lind, Camas
Published: March 21, 2023, 6:00am

The editorial, “State must continue to protect abortion rights” (In Our View, March 8) addresses the need to defend and protect “abortion rights,” gives examples of “the collision at the intersection of individual rights and abortion policy,” and highlights past and prospective legislation and measures “to protect privacy and individual freedom — beliefs that Washingtonians have always held sacrosanct.”

Nowhere, in this editorial, is the most vulnerable person in the debate mentioned — the unborn human child. Where is the advocacy for the dignity and sanctity of human life to include the unborn child? Why is there no discussion at all about the unborn baby? “For You (God) formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are Your works; my soul knows it very well.” (Psalm 139:13-14)
