‘Keep your mind off my body, please’

BRATTLEBORO — Kenneth V. Scipione wrote self-righteously, and as some kind of expert because his church agrees and he feels abortion is wrong. With that in mind, I suggest he - and the Catholic church - not have an abortion.

I also suggest that whatever choices I make for my health and well-being, as well as for my family, is clearly none of his business. Nor that of the church, any church.

The Bible repeats the phrase “judge not” several times. I wish Mr. Scipione would mind his own business and follow all the suggestions in the “good book,” including: Love your neighbor. Love your enemies. Feed the poor. Do to others as you would have them do to you.

Jesus was also clear to call some outspoken loudmouths of his time hypocrites, because they were quick to condemn but did not follow the “law” themselves.

Get your mind off my body, please, Mr. Scipione. And leave all of us women alone. We really can manage our own lives without your input.
