I am responding to the letter from Kathy Sneed (2/27) about baby Amillia Taylor, who was born very premature and survived.
The millions of malnourished, sick and neglected children currently enduring life on this globe would be glad to meet someone who believes, as Sneed claims, that “the tiniest among us deserves a fighting chance.”
Perhaps she has not seen Kevin Carter’s photograph of a vulture stalking a starving Sudanese girl? Does she fit into Sneed’s moral parameters?
I volunteer at Spofford House. It does not atone for the atrocity Carter photographed. Yet it is better than arrogance — which has apparently bled Sneed dry of her sensibilities, perhaps her compassion.
It is obscene that millions of dollars and empty platitudes such as Sneed’s feed abortion politics instead of hungry and hurting people.
To be pro-life is to direct resources to all of humanity, not just unborn babies. It is shameful to assume pro-life means anything else.
