Response to Recent Letter to the Editor
by People for Life Executive Director Tim Broderick (July 7, 2017)

In a recent letter to the editor published in the Erie Times-News, a lady in the Fairview area questioned the enormous emphasis we place on abortion-related human life issues. She based her critique on the content of this website. We are hopeful that a few people, at least, will check out this site as a result of the lady’s comments.

One of our bylines here at People for Life is “...where being “pro-life” is about proper priorities, not just having opinions.” Now, we don’t like to get into semantics games over the term pro-life. However, for the sake of clarity, we use the term as a kind of shorthand for “pro-sanctity of human life,” as opposed, for instance, to ideas about the “quality of life.”

Every year, hundreds of Erie County women undergo an abortion, the intentional killing of an innocent human being; thousands of Pennsylvania women undergo an abortion, and hundreds of thousands of American women undergo an abortion. All this tales place with the legal sanction of the government, a government, incidentally, founded explicitly on the proposition of unalienable human rights, beginning with the right to life -- the right not to be summarily put to death. It would be a gross violation of priorities for any organization that describes itself as “pro-life” not to place a tremendous emphasis on abortion. So yes! We plea “guilty as charged.”

The woman also asserted, however, that People for Life does not treat other sanctity of human life issues, except in a most cursory way. She specifically mentioned euthanasia. If this is true, we stand encouraged to do more in this area, and not only this area, but also with respect to other bedrock human life issues including: the creation (by in vitro fertilization or cloning) and destruction of human embryos for medical treatments or science research, assisted suicide, all forms of euthanasia, denial of life saving medical care (which is a grave danger inherent in any and all government-run health care systems, and infanticide (the killing of newborns usually for eugenic reasons).

But is not like we have been doing such a bad job in these areas! Just look at our Facebook timeline. All comments posted and articles shared up until noon on July 7, were posted before the letter to the editor came to our attention. Please also look at the archive of our Erie Echo newsletter, which easily accessible from the page you are currently looking at, and begin by looking at the most recent issue. The newsletter contains the results of a candidate survey for the May municipal primary election. Among the brief set of questions in the survey was one about doctor-prescribed suicide (aka physician-assisted suicide). The newsletter contains a fairly lengthy rebuttal of the response from a candidate who questioned the use of our preferred term for this form of intentionally inflicting death upon an vulnerable, defenseless human being. You may also refer to our nearly 1,000 E-Mail Update electronic newsletters and find numerous articles about embryonic stem cell and euthanasia issues, including “legislative action alerts.”

We MUST embrace the Silver Rule (Do not do unto others what you would not want done to you. Who wants to be crushed, dismembered or poisoned to death?) before we can credibly assert the Golden Rule (Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.). While many of us will disagree on whether we want, for instance, a system of free medical care or free college tuition, or government-paid vacations, none of use can credibly say that we want to be killed for the convenience of others or and so-called good of society.

An Appeal on Behalf of the
People for Life Education Fund
a 501c(3) charitable fund

If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation, please be aware that donations to our PEOPLE FOR LIFE EDUCATION FUND are tax-deductible.

Our financial situation has become, you might say, "challenging," and your gifts in support of our work are greatly appreciated. We are entirely self-supporting and exist on donations from withing the northwestern Pennsylvania pro-life community -- no government grants or subsidies from larger pro-life organizations.

For many years, donations to support the educational activities of People for Life, Inc. have not been tax-deductible, because we also do the extremely important, indispensable work of fighting for life in the political, legislative, and public policy arenas. However, we recently established a special fund that supports our educational projects exclusively. Much of our educational work centers on sharing the wonders of human development and the availability of alternatives to abortion.

PRO-CHOICE VANDALISM

On Thursday, May 1, 2008, a peaceful Cemetery of the Innocents display at the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point (UWSP) was vandalized in broad daylight and in defiance of campus security officers by a Student Senator, Roderick King. SEE THE VIDEO.

Those who deny others the right to life itself are not infrequently zealous to deny others the right to the freedom of speech.


PARTIAL-BIRTH ABORTION
"The Court finds that the testimony at trial and before Congress establishes that D&X [partial-birth abortion] is a gruesome, brutal, barbaric, and uncivilized medical procedure . . . [and finds] credible evidence that D&X abortions subject fetuses to severe pain." -- U.S. District Judge Richard Casey, New York
