PAUL ZERZAN'S LETTER TO THE EDITOR ON APR. 5, 2021

Abortion debate is whether unborn baby has right to life

https://www.guampdn.com/story/opinion/readers/2021/04/05/voice-people-pay-rise-act-key-abortion-question/7082253002/

I did not like the April 4 news article, “Governor supports women’s reproductive rights.” I think the language used was misleading to the point of deceit.

The abortion debate is not about reproductive health care or even reproduction. The abortion debate revolves around one question: “Does an unborn baby have a right to life?”

Since abortion involves killing the unborn baby to deny reproduction, the words used should be “women’s non-reproductive rights” and “non-reproductive health care.”

The abortion debate is not going to be resolved by linguistic trickery designed to evade the central moral issue: “Does an unborn baby have a right to life?” Please avoid misleading euphemisms when reporting on this topic. Thank you.

Paul Zerzan is a resident of Barrigada.
