Editor,

No matter how scary the word “abortion” sounds, it’s better to face up to the fact and keep it legal. It's better than a punch in the stomach. Women will get pregnant and abandoned by their lovers and they'll realize what they meant to their sexual partners.

Women will die over makeshift abortions and do-it-yourself jobs done with a wire hanger. If they don’t succeed, they will have a messed up or retarded child which is worse.

Birth control is the right choice, and abortion if it’s necessary; but a baby doesn’t belong discarded in a pail.
