New York Gov. Cuomo is no hero

In the Feb. 21 edition of The Goshen News, Bonnie Erbe — TV host and columnist for Scripps Howard — claims that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is a hero. He wants legislation in New York that would allow a woman to have an abortion at any time, no matter how far along she is with her pregnancy.

The column claims that the reason for the legislation is that women should always have the right over their own body. Nothing in the column says anything about the rights of the unborn being — one of God’s creations. Why don’t they just say that it is OK to murder the unborn, innocent child? Terms such as “abortion” and “terminating the pregnancy” are just soft words for killing.

The Bible, in several passages, tells how Jesus loved the little children. Our Society has moved away from what is right to what is convenient.

The great shame of our country is the murder of millions of unborn children, never given the chance to live. We will pay a tremendous price for this sin.

— Paul Scott

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?

I think it’s a good idea to feed all the students free of charge
I think those who can afford it should pay for their school meals
I think all students should be required to pay for their school meals
