Letter: Protecting the unborn includes basic health care

ENID, Okla. — I believe protecting the unborn requires us, as a country, to help provide for basic health care for all the members of the family to whom the child is to be born regardless of income level.

This basic health should include ways to help families plan future additions.

I believe  protecting the unborn requires us, as a country, to insure that affordable post-high-school education is within financial reach of every parent and their child regardless of family wealth or lack thereof.

I believe protecting the unborn requires us, as a country, to structure our economy so that parents can afford to spend time with their children and still provide for their care.

I believe protecting the unborn requires us, as a country, to circulate wealth in ways that create jobs that will sustain a family life that allows parents time to be active in a faith community and spend time guiding their children in the virtues of their faith.

I believe  protecting the unborn requires us, as a country, to look for peaceful resolutions to national conflicts thereby protecting lives in this country and countries abroad.

I believe protecting the unborn requires us, as a country, to provide for the general welfare of those who have lived to an advanced age by protecting programs such as Medicare and Social Security.

I believe the Affordable Care Act, the student loan interest rate reduction, Wall Street reforms and the plans to reward companies that provide jobs in the United States that pay a middle-class wage are steps forward toward a country that demonstrates the value of all lives born and unborn and shows it is possible to love your neighbor as yourself.

Think, then vote in November.
