To the editor:
Do you not represent all WY citizens? Those in vulnerable stages of life? Are you ready to turn your back and allow the brutal murder of the children and the elderly?
Does it not bother you that babies are tortured and dismembered? Being poisoned and having their spines snapped in two?
I had thought better of you. I thought you cared for your constituents.
Secretary Gray is not grandstanding. He is standing up for his principles. He cares that the most vulnerable of us are being killed because they are an “inconvenience.”
Please take some time to understand the real issues at hand. A few evil people in our great state are making money on the destruction of not only “life” but “lives.”
When a vulnerable young woman is coerced into murdering her unborn child, she later comes to know what she has really done – murdered her innocent, trusting child. Her life from that point on will never be the same. The guilt goes with you every hour of every day for the rest of your life. I know.
We as a human race have lost the lesson of just how precious life is. If one studies where we are currently headed, we are on a doomsday course. Our productivity is failing, our brain power diminishing, our reproduction is in decline. What part of that is being attended to? None of it.
Our factories are in third world countries producing substandard goods; our “schools” of higher learning require “remedial classes” so that the student body can read or cipher; the 2.3 children to maintain our species is spiraling down.
What might help is to re-evaluate the moral decay in our society. Stop promoting “sex” as a “sport” and its consequences as collateral damage. Perhaps making marriage and family a priority, as the acceptable norm again. Stop the promotion of abnormal behavior as the standard. Stop mutilating our children and “putting” our aging population on drugs or talking them into ending their lives.
As our governor, you are to set the standard not to hang back and see which way the winds will blow.
From a proud citizen of Wyoming.

Just a few refutations to Robin Berry’s letter to the Governor.
What does the issue of abortion have to do with ‘murdering the elderly’? None, but it makes the visceral appeal greater.
Abortion is not the ‘brutal murder’ of children, although that is what the anti-abortionists would have you believe. It is a fetus, not a child, not a person, not a citizen.
Torture and dismemberment? There is no credible scientific evidence that a fetus feels pain. Again, torture is a nice buzz word.
‘Evil people are making money.’ Actually, these are caring medical professionals providing health care to women.
‘Murdering her unborn child.’ Once again, it is not murder, it is a medical procedure. Yes it is true that some women regret the decision. That is part of being human. We all make decisions we regret. That is not the same as them being the wrong decision at the time or not being the right decision for millions.
‘Our factories are in third world countries producing substandard goods.’ But that is capitalism. Surely you are not arguing for socialism or communism, are you?
‘Perhaps making marriage and family a priority.’ And of course you have not availed yourself of the divorce laws in this country.
Of course you will consider me to be evil, but my opinion, for what it is worth, is that it is the woman’s decision alone. She may seek out medical advice, spiritual guidance and family support. But it is her body alone. No one else’s. Right up to the time of God breathing in the breath of life and the child taking its first breath.

You should get in touch with Bob Meinecke. He probably knows some white, Christian, American males born with exterior plumbing, who could help you with that birth rate thing.
Uh, what part of Texas did you say you were from , ma'am ?
