Shock and disappointment

What a shock and disappointment to see Jerry Heckert’s letter (“Shocking photo,” March 23).

I disagree with Mr. Heckert’s premise that the primary purpose of the Womens’ March was to campaign for continued funding by the government for free abortions (which is not true). The March was planned after Mr. Trump’s election to protest the denial of women’s rights in general and to highlight Mr. Trump’s low estimation of women.

The Presentation Sisters spoke up for social justice as they have done in the past. As a practicing Catholic and woman I am very proud to see these sisters carrying out Christ’s message. Jesus’ treatment of his mother, Mary and other women in the New Testament illustrates his profound respect for the feminine gender.
