Bless all of our hearts. When did we all lose ourselves and become hateful, angry, argumentative people with no respect...

Apply some common sense

I am neither pro nor con on the abortion issue. There are things in favor of abortion and things that are against abortion. Both arguments have merit. Those who are against abortion have a strong argument which I can agree with. But, on the other hand, women should have the right to decide what their future should be. Let’s let pro-lifers mind their own business and come to an agreeable solution that both sides can accept.

I call pro-lifers back-alley or coat hanger abortionists because that is in effect what they are causing. Instead of going to a hospital for an abortion in a clean sterile environment, they are forcing women to go into an illegal unsafe situation. They are in effect what I call “coat hanger abortionists.”

Also, once the baby is born, these so called do-gooders wash their hands of any further responsibility and say “We got you into this world kid, now you’re on your own. Good luck, little one.” Note childhood hunger.

Why lay all the blame on the mother when there are obviously two people involved in the pregnancy? If they want the pregnancy to go full term and finally produce a baby, let’s take it a step further and start sharing the blame for the situation.

Let’s test the baby for DNA then have the mother name the person or persons with whom she had sex and test them for that DNA. “Bingo” we have the other person to blame for this situation. Making him responsible for the hospital bill and extended care of the child. Let Daddy become a baby carriage pusher too. If he doesn’t want to do this, let him hear the prison door clang shut behind him.

Abortion is a worldwide problem, not just in Alabama where thinking is rare, and should be addressed with some knowledge and common sense and not just emotions.

Welcome to Greenville — a growing city with an extraordinarily diverse population of citizens, many of whom came here as immigrants. It’s good for you to know that institutions like Vidant Medical Center and East Carolina University have attracted such gifted persons and their families.…

I believe we should only spend what we take in. We should not keep giving the rich and the corporations more and more and more and hope the windfall trickles down.

I believe in sharing, and that if everyone brings just one dish to a covered dish dinner, there would be more than everyone could eat.…

Please listen to the news, read the papers, align yourselves with people who are engaged in politics... just stay abreast of the events in our state as relates to politics. Educate your family, friends and neighbors. Our political system in North Carolina is broken, and unfair district maps are the…

What does the mayor’s basement have to do with good government?

The traditional July break from meeting is a good time for the Greenville City Council to stop a bad practice—discussing the public’s business in afternoon “workshops” in a small conference room without…

Regarding his letter to the Reflector on June 30, I don’t recall ever “having made [Milton Bland’s] acquaintance.” Perhaps Mr. Bland is simply too “bland” for one to remember. His comment that “ask[ed for] ... an unqualified favor ... Tinsley exudes a…

As the ECU Board of Trustees approaches the date to elect its new leadership, I'm reminded how poor that leadership has been over the past 3-4 years. The university is now transitioning to a new interim chancellor and from losses based on poor decision-making. Before any returning board member gets…
