Letter: Believe the Democratic party or God

LIMA — On the south side of Elida Rd. between Western Sizzlin + Burger King there is an overhead sign that reads – “Vote yes on Issue 1 Tues. Nov. 7 The state doesn’t own your body – you do. Protect reproductive freedom. Paid for by the Allen Co. Democratic party.”

I believe that most Christians would take exception to that statement since scripture tells us that we don’t own our bodies. That we belong to God. We are also told that we were known before we were formed in the womb. Also the Hipppocratic oath says “First do no harm.”

Are we to believe the Democratic party or God.
