Letter to the Editor:

Sen. Tammy Baldwin has introduced the Reproductive Health Travel Fund Act. Lucy Ripp from the left-wing A Better Wisconsin Together supports this (Vilas County News-Review Dec. 21). The bill would provide money to those seeking an abortion for such expenses as travel, child care, and lodging. Thus taxpayer funds would make the killing of babies easier.

Referring to the overturning of Roe v. Wade, the author makes the odd statement that, “…every person who can become pregnant has been severely impacted by a lack of access to abortion…”

In my medical career, we always referred to obstetrical patients as women. But that is not the preferred term in the woke part of the culture. And to assert that all women are troubled because abortion is not available is nonsense.

Baldwin’s bill is mislabeled. Abortion is not reproductive health. It is disaster for the baby. Every pregnant woman I have cared for — regardless of gestational stage — has referred to the person inside of her as a baby. The prophet Isaiah said it plainly, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil.”
