Abortion: men have lost their reason

Published:Tuesday | July 17, 2018 | 12:00 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir:

THE UNITED Nations Children's Fund tells us that 2.6 million children (about Jamaica's population) died in their first month of birth (2016), a million of whom died on their first day.

These latter deaths were predominantly caused by preterm abnormalities. Not counted are the number of spontaneous abortions or foetal deaths that occur contrary to the will or negligence of the mother.

Christian clerics tell us that God abhors abortions. For their own assurance of being more than 'sentient puppets on God's stage', but intelligent thinkers as well, they should debate God on this incongruity.
