Letters to the Editor: April 15, 2014

(Continued)

Entire families suffer when a child’s life is killed through abortion. Grief has no boundaries.

“Project Rachel” and “Rachel’s Vineyard” are two programs that are available to help post-abortive women. 

The sidewalk counselor mentioned simply touched the man’s shoulder to help him realize that this baby, his child, was already developing in the womb of his girlfriend and that she very much wanted their child. Why was no one there supporting her right to choose life while he was forcing her to abort their child? 

We will continue to be present because women are changing their minds. Do not let death be the “choice” we hand mothers. We can do much better than that.

Love offers beautiful alternatives.

Reverse mortgages

TO THE EDITOR: This Letter to the Editor, which is not in the realm of my usual writings, would probably have reached more readers if I had been a TV actor, but here are my feelings relative to the barrage of TV advertisements for reverse mortgages.

They are financially dangerous to anyone that does not fully understand the ramifications of such a loan until it is too late.

Offering your life’s biggest investment without first understanding the terms, or not seeking legal advice, could be the biggest mistake of your life.

This letter is especially aimed at those in need of financial help or facing retirement without adequate funds or investments, who believes that this type of loan is their salvation.

Most all these advertisements for the loans are performed by actors or names and faces that will be recognized by the viewers due to the staged performance of that individual from previous exposure.

There are many people who ridicule Wikipedia, but if you want a clear understanding of how a reverse mortgage works, and the pitfalls that one might incur, visit the website: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reverse_mortgage. It could make a big difference in your retirement or needs.
