On Feb. 21, I read Eric Alcock’s letter to the editor (“Population strategy advice for the premier”), and I wonder where does he and his church get the moral authority to advise Premier Kathy Dunderdale on population strategy for Newfoundland and Labrador?
We live in the modern era where people are capable of deciding best family planning for themselves based on careers, medical or financial limitations.
The same church that has murdered thousands in its history has no right to judge women who had abortions for their own reasons. It’s hypocritical for his church to condemn sexual perversions when it abused innocent young boys under its care and ruined their lives.
My strategy advice for Eric Alcock’s church: don’t advise the premier on sensible morality when your own morality is lacking, because no one likes moral hypocrites.
