Choosing life

This letter is in response to the distortions in the letter by Marilyn Goldfarb in the Aug. 2 edition.

I believe the baby while in residence in his or her mother’s womb is not part of the mother’s body, but a distinct other person with his own DNA, her own fingerprints and a separate heart beat and brain waves at 6 weeks of gestation. Babies feel pain as early as 12 weeks according to a recent study in the Journal of Medical Ethics titled “reconsidering fetal pain.”

At 13 to 24 weeks dismemberment abortions are performed because the unborn baby is too big to deliver. Therefore the baby is brutally dismembered and delivered piece by piece and then reassembled to make sure no body parts remain in the womb. A ban on dismemberment abortions passed both houses of the Pennsylvania legislature, but was sadly vetoed by Gov. Tom Wolf.

In my opinion we need a governor who will stop this hideous brutal procedure.

These are all facts which you did not mention in your letter. And knowing these facts I believe most Jewish women would choose life for their unborn babies.
