Letter: More concerns than the economy


Dear editor,

In Sunday’s column Scott Reeder seemed to indicate that the economy is the only issue that will send people to the polls, dismissing the likelihood that the recent decisions and direction of the Supreme Court might also be a concern to many.

Sigh. The questions regarding the overturning of Roe v. Wade are bigger and more far-reaching than simply the right of a woman to have an abortion. There is the question of whether or not a woman has the same rights of citizenship as a man. Does she have a right to make the same kinds of personal decisions as a man? Does her full citizenship depend on the state in which she resides? It’s not solely about abortion, but about treating women as competent adults able to make decisions based on their needs and beliefs.
