Battles' diatribe on women's rights was just sad

James Battles, of Lakes of the Four Seasons, must be experiencing a lot of personal tragedy in order to write such a hate-filled letter, "Why should men determine what rights women have?"

Battles belittles men as a gender and also expresses his disdain for anyone who abides by religious beliefs to justify the killing of the unborn.

I couldn't help but see his letter as a cry for help. To express such hatred and disdain for manhood, and religion, Battles must have a lot of inner pain in that he feels the need to lash out in this manner.

I usually enjoy reading the letters to the editor, but Battles' diatribe was just plain sad. I hope he finds the help he needs.
