Abortion and personal responsibility

April 20, 2013

In regard to The Sun's editorial on Kermit Gosnell, you should be ashamed of yourselves ("Kermit Gosnell and the 'liberal media,'" April 16). Blaming the alleged murder of seven children on the fact that women don't have access to birth control and comprehensive sex education is ludicrous. Doesn't anyone need to take responsibility for their actions anymore?

Since when don't women have access to birth control? Last time I checked, condoms are available in every pharmacy. Planned Parenthood — note the word, planned — helps women with their reproductive choices. As a teacher in the state of Maryland, I can attest to the fact that there is comprehensive sex education in our schools. Then again, in order to learn, a student needs to be an active, responsible participant in the process.

Oh, no! There's that word "responsibility" again.
