    The article by Thelma Grimes brings up some good points, however, I should hope she is open to another viewpoint. Coming from the opposite side, I am an independent conservative, and my Christian faith is more important than my political positions. Over the years I have grown in my faith, and believe that much of what we debate in our society and our opinions will matter to God, who will be our judge for the views we held, the priorities we had, the choices we made, and the decisions that framed our earthly lives.
    On the issue at hand; to state categorically that there is a war on women is erroneous. There is, however, a war between women being raged in our culture, and men are also found on both sides of the issue. Having followed the pro-life movement for decades, I have noted that many of the most ardent, most diligent, most well informed, most articulate, and most determined pro-life supporters have been women both nationally and locally.
    While some women have looked at the issue of abortion as all about THEM, and their freedom, the pro-life women have viewed it as an issue of protecting the sanctity of the unborn children. Most pro-life women are deeply religious and mostly Christian women who regard faith and conscience as more essential than their own freedom to discard the human life growing within their wombs. Additionally,.these women know they will stand before almighty God and will be able to justify their positions against abortion. Those who are pro-choice will never, in my view, convince the LOrd that their own freedom was more important than the child He created in their bodies.
    For the record, Ms Grimes should be aware of the statistics. Abortions have been close to 93% because the child was unwanted, from 2 months to almost 20 weeks, with absolutely no health issues affecting the woman. Only 1-6% of total abortions are carried out due to rape, incest, or health issues. These figures are astounding. Can we honestly say that the proponents of the abortion movement in the United States, the Gloria Steinem's, Bella Abzuggs, Barbara Boxer's, and company were right? How can any Christian woman sign on to these immoral values?
    In closing, while the Republicans are accused by the liberal leaning amoral media of waging a war on women, the Democrats have far more defects, in having raged, as a party, a war against the unborn children of our land, done for the sake of advancing some extremist feminist idea that supports legal matricide.
    In the end, God will judge. For me, I will always vote for only pro-life candidates, all of whom seem to be Republican conservatives, and will support traditional marriage between one man and one woman, and the pro-life position is at the top of my list. As a values voter, I cannot vote for a liberal pro-abortion candidate, and will forfeit my vote rather than give it to a candidate who does not value human life. Since the Democrats do not offer pro-life candidates, and proudly proclaim this to be the case, I shall never cast a vote for any Democrat. Ms Grimes should remember that what she believes about protecting or not protecting the life of unborn children cannot be neutral. You are either for it or against it.
    As for Planned Parenthood, Ms Grimes needs to research this immoral organization to see the truth. Planned Parenthood wants abortion to stay around because they get lots of funding from the government. Planned Parenthood is for late term abortion, killing the unborn for any reason, and it is why they exist. Planned Parenthood supports a sex education program that is aimed at children and it is pornographic, encouraging experimentation with homosexuality and other perversions. Does Ms Grimes, or anyone else really believe that Planned Parenthood espouses good values? In closing, these issues are complex to some. To me it is simply about doing God's will, and God, believe me, is pro-life.
