Your View: Let the children decide

By Charlie Balmas

MONETT, Mo. — Once again the Supreme Court is faced with the decision of abortion and Roe V. Wade. Haven’t we been here before?

It says it will give us its decision in June.

I think it’s time we let the children make the decision. The innocence of a child comes not from the mind or the politics of our country. A child is free from all those vices; they will decide with the heart.

I, for one, put my trust in the children of our country. For there is no other group better than our children to make a decision that will settle this matter once and for all.

The innocence of a child is something to witness, and bring tears to our eyes.

I believe that when the children hear both sides of the debate, they will give us their decision that day.
