Clinton leaves the mother to decide

YOU report Hillary Clinton (January 29) as saying “being pro-choice does not mean being pro-abortion”.

While this may depend on how Ms Clinton defines “pro-abortion”, the substance of her pro-choice position is undoubtedly pro-abortion on demand.

This ultimately means giving the absolute right to all women to choose abortion without explanation to anybody, including their husbands, and denies the concept of unborn children having any protected right to life other than that enjoyed at their mother’s discretion.

That being the case, the Doctors for Choice group mentioned in the report could be entitled more properly “Doctors for Legalised Abortion on Demand”.

Last week, I shared my lockdown experience. I asked for a more uniform approach, should there be another lockdown. I explained that I worked mornings. Maybe I should have been more specific: working 8am to 1pm without a break, I gave feedback and covered the curriculum, using our school’s online platform. In the afternoons, I looked after my three kids (all under ten) while my husband worked.
