Bill an attack on women


I have never written a letter to the editor. However, after reading the Feb. 18 article “Bill would require ultrasound for abortion,” I absolutely could not keep quiet. What does Senate Assistant Majority Leader Chuck Winder, R-Meridian, think an ultrasound will prove? It’s just another hoop a female will have to jump through to make her free choice.

Why isn’t Winder spending his time and effort improving Idaho’s educational system, working to increase Idaho’s hourly wage, and bringing more industry to Idaho? That would improve living conditions for Idaho’s children. There’s an elephant in the room that is being ignored. Why doesn’t Winder come right out and say a female has sinned (having sex) and will have to pay for it? What next? Will he want a female burned at the stake for her sins?
