Perth Amboy Mayor Wilda Diaz is to be commended for the tributes that she paid to our servicemen and women at Veterans Day observances during the week of November 11th.
Many words about fighting for freedom and American values were said. We need to practice those ideals so that the sacrifices of our military will not be in vain. “Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” should be a fundamental right of children who are alive and unborn.
I sadly noted a sign on the City Hall doors saying that Perth Amboy was a Pink Ribbon Run Supporter during the past Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure to fight breast cancer.
According to the Life Issues Institute, some of its proceeds fund Planned Parenthood, purportedly for mammograms, but that “frees up funds to support other areas of an organization’s agenda, such as abortion services.”
For that reason, many city residents who are pro-life do not support the organization. City Hall represents all of us and should remain neutral. We must find a cure, but not at the expense of innocent human life.
How we choose to treat the most vulnerable members of our society, will, in the end, indicate how just, tolerant, and compassionate The United States Of America is.
