LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Criticism of anti-abortion bill really misses the mark

 Criticism of anti-abortion bill really misses the mark

by Tim Rohr

In “Health, not politics, should drive medical decisions” (The Guam Daily Post, Letter to the Editor, Apr. 11, 2022), the authors, Anita Arriola and 12 other women, began their letter with: “It’s like clockwork: you can count on it. Virtually every election year one or more senators copy an anti-abortion bill, ... slap their names on it, and introduce it in the Guam Legislature.”

As the saying goes: you are welcome to your own opinion but not your own facts.

The last “anti-abortion bill” introduced by a Guam lawmaker was in 2016, an election year, but given it was introduced in January, nearly a year before the election, it hardly qualifies as a campaign move.
