Disappointed in Letter on Abortion

Letters to the Editor

To the editor:

As I was reading the letters to the editor in last week’s Alexandria and  Mount Vernon Gazette,  I was disappointed that the letter writer did not have a better idea or a solution to end the weekly protests in front of the medical building on Sherwood Hall Lane.

I was also disappointed that your publication would publish an anonymous letter with many statements that are not true.

Since the Supreme Court overturned Roe vs. Wade approximately 35,000 children’s lives have been saved each year in the United States. The best way to locally stop these peaceful protests is for citizens to push the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors to change the zoning laws so abortion facilities  are not permitted in our neighborhoods.

If Fairfax County does not change their zoning  laws we need to lobby our state legislators to ban abortions and put an end to the largest human rights violation of our  time.

The next statewide election is in November 2025 and if Virginia voters select one more pro life state senator and two more pro-life members of the House  of Delegates, Virginia will become a pro life state and the weekly protests will end on Sherwood Hall Lane.

As a lifelong Alexandrian  we should all be concerned about unborn children losing their lives every Saturday morning in our neighborhoods. As the anonymous letter writer wrote, ”the harassment affects all of us,” this is true, especially how it  affects the unborn children of Alexandria.
