Letters to the Editor

Abortion, slavery victims treated as less than human

To the editor: George Fisher writes that comparisons between abortion and slavery make him “physically sick.” I wonder how he would hold up watching the movie “Unplanned”? It is the true story of a female Planned Parenthood executive’s switch to pro-lifer, when, after years of ...

ACA has achieved good things, despite its issues

To the editor: As an agriculturalist who works to advance the interests of farmers and their communities, I know that securing affordable health care is a major concern for rural families. We currently have a solid health care system thanks to Medicaid, Medicare and the Affordable Care Act. ...

To pro-choicers, abortion is extension of birth control

To the editor: I just read to a letter to the editor written in response to Father Weary’s recent posting in opposition to abortion. Mr. Fisher as well as most pro-abortionists continually make the argument that a woman has the right to make choices that should not be denied. I happen to ...

War on Drugs has not served intended purpose

To the editor: Richard Nixon started The War on Drugs in 1971. Has it been successful in removing illegal drugs from the streets? No! Despite spending trillions of dollars, there are more drugs on the streets now, they’re cheaper and being used by more people than ever before. Prohibiting ...

Comparing abortion and slavery is nonsensical

To the editor: Again, another pro-lifer is making false comparisons between slavery and abortion (two completely different subjects by the way). Again another pro-lifer is dictating to others what they should do with their body. In my previous letter, I stated that I had spoken to a local ...

Summer Backpack Program set to kick off

To the editor: Thank you for providing this forum to express appreciation. On Tuesday, June 11, the Juniata County Food Pantry will begin its annual Summer Backpack Program. Children who have completed any grade in the Juniata County School District this year from kindergarten through ...

Thank you to Milroy Lions for spaghetti dinner

To the editor: The Milroy Senior Center would like to extend a grateful “thank you” to the Milroy Lions for serving a community spaghetti dinner on April 25 to benefit the center. Roxie Garrett Communications Coordinator PA LINK Coordinator - Mifflin and Juniata ...

Pro-choice advocate’s logic can be found in the past

To the editor: Many of the arguments George Fisher uses in his letter last week against pro-lifers were used against anti-slavery advocates, i.e., abolitionists, in the 19th century, such as: you abolitionists are dictators, telling us slave-owners what to do with our property and our lives ...

Thank you for providing election workers’ meals

To the editor: On Election Day, I and five other Fayette Township elected and appointed officials (Sandra K. Westover, Doris Watts, Ann Hart, Joy Watts and Geraldine Gerrber) received a meal of our choice for dinner that was delivered to us at the Fayette Fire Co. hall by the Bread Of Life ...

Critics of pro-choice use faulty reasoning

To the editor: I have just finished reading the comment from Mark Williams in Thursday’s Sentinel. All I have to say is that as usual, and I will call pro-lifers what they actually are, a pro-life dictator took my words out of context. And before I get the comments that say that they are ...
