Hey there, time traveller!

I shook my head at your May 30 front-page headline, Revered, reviled, about Henry Morgentaler. No, I don't revile Dr. Morgentaler, but only what he did and what he promoted.
Pity and sorrow are what I feel for him, for he had no regard for babies within the womb. Hopefully, before he drew his last breath, he changed his mind and asked for forgiveness and mercy.
Life begins at conception. Pope Francis says: "The pregnant woman doesn't carry a toothbrush in her womb, nor a tumor. Science teaches that from the moment of conception, the new being has all the genetic code. It's impressive. It's not, therefore, a religious question but clearly a moral one, based on science."
My husband and I adopted three children. And before you counter by saying if their mothers had had abortions, we would not have had children, let me say two words: Phoenix Sinclair.
We were always tempted to ask those vehemently opposing abortion, "Have you ever adopted or supported, financially, emotionally or spiritually, those children you advocate for in your anti-free choice signs, programs and propaganda?
Did you ever support in any way the parents of Phoenix Sinclair and countless other children like her? Do you ever follow up and support those women whom you bully away from free choice?
You scream in support of a zygote, a pre-embryo many of which can be naturally aborted in a woman's menstrual flow. You save the zygote and ignore the child and mother.
