Seattle Times letters to the editor

Should child care be free?

Life is full of choices

Letter writer Gina Petry calls for free developmental child care, labeling it a human right that would help end gender-pay disparity [“Give money to needy, not greedy,” Northwest Voices, June 12]. In doing so, she misses the essence of the American system.

We should all have the opportunity to succeed, but our success should be dependent on our choices and is not, nor should it be, guaranteed. Life is full of choices, including the decision to have children. If one selects the path of a certain profession or a part-time career, the economic consequences are of his or her own making. It is not the responsibility of others to subsidize those individuals.

Richard Hawley, Bellevue
