CDC censoring words bad for democracy

Editor,

The seven censored CDC words never to be used again …

These are trying days for our country and for all of us.

We feel VULNERABLE watching the pillars of our democracy being dissolved.

We are losing our well earned ENTITLEMENTS and the cultivation of our shared DIVERSITY.

We all have friends and family, TRANSGENDER and gay.

We support our grandchildren planning for the day that a FETUS becomes a son or daughter.

And we all realize that we must move forward in understanding and making the world a better place through well substantiated theories of EVIDENCE-BASED and SCIENCE-BASED approaches to science and medicine that will continue to improve life.

The madness must stop.
