LETTER:Outraged by court

I am outraged at the Supreme Court’s decision to reverse Roe v. Wade.

Six of the nine Supreme Court Justices are Catholic, including Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Sonia Sotomayor, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett.

All of them, except Justic Sotomayor, voted to reverse Roe v. Wade.

The Catholic Church is strongly against abortion.

Five of the justices ruled according to Catholic law.

Jewish religious authorities state that prior to 40 days, a fetus is not a person but rather is considered “mere water.”

In every case, the mother’s life is placed ahead of the life of the fetus.

A fetus is considered as its mother’s thigh, i.e., a part of its mother’s body.

Abortion is permitted to save the mother’s life and when carrying the fetus to term would cause woe.

Today, a 61 percent majority of U.S. adults say abortion should be legal in all or most cases.

Non-Catholics, including Jews, other religions and people with no religion should not be forced to follow Catholic law that disagrees with their own convictions.

The Supreme Court violated our First Amendment rights by supporting a law which prohibits the free exercise of religion in choosing abortion.
