.Letters to the Editor—Right to Life, Freedom to Vote

Freedom to Vote

Other than for my post-high school education, I have been a resident of Marin County since 1962. Politicians are currently trying to modify voting maps for advantages in elections; this is gerrymandering and SHOULD NOT BE LEGAL, as it alters the outcome of the elections, thereby preventing the voice of our people from being heard and, consequently, damaging some of the most important aspects of our democracy! 

We need federal reforms to ensure fair maps throughout our country! The Freedom to Vote Act and the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act will end partisan gerrymandering and ensure that voting maps are more fair, transparent and nonpartisan!

Senators Feinstein and Padilla are good people who are trying to do the right things for our country and our people. They need to deliver the Freedom to Vote Act and the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to ensure more fair, transparent and nonpartisan maps!!

Right to Life

I am angry at the so-called “Right to Life” movement. It’s time for a major reality check for those claiming to be fighting for the rights of the unborn.

Every day 10,000 children worldwide die horribly painful deaths from starvation. And with each passing day our planet approaches the point where the massive starvation of children will become epidemic because of global warming and the resulting breakdown of the world’s agriculture. In addition, the continuing spread of nuclear weapons and deadly tensions among the world’s major superpowers threaten all the children on this Earth—born, unborn and ever to be born.

It’s time for the “Right to Life” movement to return to the real world from their “holier-than-thou” conservative Christian idealism. Who truly cares for the unborn people of the world?
