Graying of NH

To the Editor: My suggestions for addressing the graying of New Hampshire:

First, we need to stop killing our youth. The 25-year-old machinists, software engineers, and welders we need aren’t created in a biology lab at UNH; they start out as babies in their mommies’ tummies. Yet we lose more than 2,400 children a year to the state and federally subsidized abortion industry.

This is the equivalent of wiping out the population of Merrimack every 10 years. A disproportionate number of children aborted are minorities, even as the state promotes diversity.

Next, we need to provide children with fathers. We know that children growing up without fathers in the household have much higher rates of suicide, drug addiction, incarceration, mental illness, and behavior problems, and are much less likely to finish high school and college, yet one in three children in the U.S. is growing up without a father in the home.

As President Obama said, “We need fathers to step up, to realize that their job does not end at conception; that what makes you a man is not the ability to have a child but the courage to raise one.”

I call upon Gov. Chris Sununu to create a task force to explore ways we can protect life and to incentivize men and women to join in a lifelong, exclusive relationship oriented toward producing and raising children.
